Extu Wins Best Channel Incentive Program in the 2020 Motivation Masters Awards

Time to get excited! Your favorite incentive company Extu (at the time, known as “Incentive Solutions”) was recognized for four of its channel incentive programs in the 11th annual Motivation Masters Awards, winning the award for “Best Channel Program!”

“To see not only our company’s name, but so many of our programs receive recognition in this year’s competition was a very proud moment for Incentive Solutions,” said Mark Herbert, CEO and President, in a PR this morning. “Being able to contribute to our client’s growth is a reward in itself, and having our work highlighted within the industry re-enforces the power of recognition we so strongly believe in.”

The Award Categories

The Motivation Masters Awards are held annually by Incentive, a B2B brand that offers insight and strategy on the power of motivation, recognition, and rewards.  The five award categories for this year’s competition included:

  • Best Channel Program
  • Best Loyalty Program
  • Best Recognition Program
  • Best Sales Program
  • Grand Motivation Master

The nominated programs used a variety of incentive tactics, including luxury travel, gift card and merchandise rewards, and recognition for leadership in an online community. The competition also named nine incentive programs in a list of honorable mentions.

The Channel Incentive Program Winner

Incentive Solutions received recognition for its channel incentive program Loyalty Rocks!, a program born through collaboration with Carnival Cruise Line. Dedicated to rewarding travel agents for their booking efforts, this online incentive program offers reward points for participation in promotions, completion of online training, and attendance at Carnival tradeshows and events.

Agents can redeem points for a variety of items in a virtual merchandise catalog, including

  • Gift cards
  • Electronics
  • Sporting goods
  • Home and garden items
  • Jewelry

With the use of Incentive Solutions’ Integration Services Module, Carnival Cruise Line was able to connect their loyalty program to their existing online booking platform. Travel agents are able to book cruises, earn points, and redeem rewards all in one location, making participation in the program easy and seamless.

Channel Incentive Program Honorable Mentions!

Incentive Solutions is also proud to have received additional recognition for three more of its incentive programs, making up one third of the honorable mentions list! These programs sport a variety of innovative practices, including:

  • mobile app creation for ease of participation;
  • daily trivia and gamification to keep customers engaged; and
  • a special concierge service for personalized reward redemptions.

Keeping up with the latest incentive trends is a top priority for Incentive Solutions, and providing our clients with data through our performance tracking technology helps guarantee customer engagement and a positive ROI.
