Many large companies struggle with the reward and incentives purchasing and procurement process, as it often requires coordination of multiple contracts with a number of approved vendors, various pricing schedules, and internal brand and legal review. In response to this problem, PROP was designed to simplify the reward ordering process, and centralize, streamline and standardize the procurement effort.
The platform provides a single destination for enterprises that before had to coordinate different incentives through different departments, such as Human Resources, Finance, Sales and Marketing. Using PROP, all departments have access to a prepaid incentive ordering and customization portal, which can be set up with pre-approved configuration designed on a user basis and a hierarchical structure including approval and budget capabilities and restrictions. Companies have the ability to select from a range of standard designs, or create custom designs to fit within a specific product line, promotion, achievement or theme. Users can leverage scale, pre-approved materials, simple ordering, and a robust reporting and audit trail.
"We developed PROP to solve a request that we heard time and time again: our clients need a centralized repository to order and re-order Visa prepaid cards," stated Juli Spottiswood, President & CEO of Parago. "Whether it is a short run of cards used by HR for employee recognition, or thousands of cards for a large-scale consumer incentive program, PROP enables all departments within an enterprise to procure prepaid incentives through a few quick clicks."
PROP is designed for organizations large and small to deliver a streamlined and synthesized ordering process.
"The launch of PROP is just in time for those organizations looking for an enterprise-wide way to deliver great holiday rewards," continued Spottiswood. "Clients can provide a solution that lets managers and brand owners deliver unique rewards to their audience, whether it be employee, customer or client, easily and in a standardized process."
