Increase performance and sales by having an engaged workforce in addition to providing your Organization the system that recognizes Employees when they do something right. Not by coincidence, but as part of a process.

How we do it

Every successful program begins with your Employees. Want to drive loyalty memberships? Need more usage from your Guest Survey Programs? We offer one platform to engage your Staff and help you achieve goals in these areas:

  • Sales

An employee that is engaged with their work cares about their company and the role they play in making them successful.

  • Create a culture of recognition in your workplace
  • Award staff for increasing sales/average check
  • Reward employees for participating in contests, training and creating new ideas
  • Allow staff to select priZing/rewards that are most meaningful to them in our Marketplace
  • Peer to Peer recognition

This same platform can also fulfill your Guest loyalty needs and provide:

  • Electronic coupon distribution and reminder notifications
  • Referral programs – let your Guests tell their friends about the great experience they have and encourage them to join your loyalty program
  • Collect guest feedback, including guest recovery tactics via manager notifications when a specific sentiment or score is provided by a guest

Do you need all of my sales data from my POS?

Yes. Its easier than getting pieces. But that can be done too.

Who keeps my data?

Our system uses only the data it requires to power the engagement/sales/contest mechanics of your program as well as any reporting on your campaign KPI’s. We can work with you to ensure data is only stored on our secure servers for as long as you wish.

Is my data safe?

Yes. We have worked with Billion dollar companies for the past 4 years.  All necessary security protocols and contracts are in place.

What if one of my employees quits or gets fired?

Every 30 days the system locks out any staff members who have not logged in, or for which we have not received any data for (from POS, Survey responses, etc.)

Who Manages the program?

We provide a dedicated Program Manager or you can do it yourself after training.

How many customers do you currently work with?

We are currently running programs for over 400 locations.

How long have you been in business?

GuestEngine has been around for 8 years, 5 of those have been dedicated to building and running programs on this platform.

Is this platform anything like Badgeville (gamification co.)?

Our solution is built specifically for multi-unit restaurants. Our on-boarding, location/manager management, Social Referrals, Mobile Coupons and POS Integrations are what make it unique and specific to the restaurant industry.  These are features that are completely unique to our platform.

Is it an App or is it Web-based?

It is a Web-based app that can also be customized as a native/angular app to then be available to download to your phone.
