Trusted by world leading organisations to recognise excellence
In our search to replace our locally run award system, we identified four potential companies to speak with. One was the local incumbent, two were in the US and Award Force in Australia.
Award Force was like a breath of fresh air with a website that was clean and very attractive.
We arranged a web-demo with them that showed how we could match their system to our needs.
It looked great and we were very keen and made the decision to go with Award Force over all the others.It was the best decision ever.
