Introducing Custom Thanks

|   Feb 16, 2012

A short while back we introduced Thanks to give companies an easy way to provide real-time employee recognition while increasing engagement and peer-to-peer interaction in their social stream.

Thanks proved to be so valuable for our customers that we’ve taken it a step further – today we’re introducing custom Thanks. Now customers can create icons that best reflect the individual aspects of their culture, recognize employees and provide instant feedback in a way that’s uniquely their own.

With Thanks by Socialcast, you can:

  • Send Thanks by selecting from a custom library of badges where Thanks are created and made available by the company.
  • Anyone designated as a Thanks administrator can enable custom Thanks badges
  • Upload company images and logos to create unique badges for individual companies and departments

In addition to customizing the individual badges, Socialcast Thanks seamlessly integrates recognition across the entire application porfolio by utilizing Socialcast Reach, extending Thanks across Sharepoint, CRM, ERP, PLM, Intranets, Wikis and other existing business systems. By using a fully customizable platform like Socialcast, customers can create social interaction across their enterprise apps.

Using the customizations, customers can easily brand and promote what’s important to management and reinforce core values of the company. Socialcast customers can enable custom Thanks in their dashboard today. If you’re interested in learning more about how employee recognition can increase engagement in the workplace, check out our recent webinar “How Enterprise Social Networking Improves Employee Engagement.”
