Snappy Versus the competition

They've been quick to adopt a remote-first approach to team recognition, helping you send gifts to employees, customers, or prospects to their home, for instance.

Pros
Cons

Snappy Review

Snappy believes in giving gifts to engage employees, versus points or dollars which they view as impersonal.  And, they've got lots of notes from employees to prove their approach has merit.  One nice part of their offering is that their team will spend time at the beginning of the implementation to make sure there are automated touch points built into your employee rewards and recognition program (birthdays, anniversaries, etc).  

They have a 99% customer retention rate, which we find very impressive.

Who shouldn't buy Snappy

It's up and foremost an employee gifts platform, which means you won't get many of the features that can be usual on other employee recognition software.
