Among the significant new features of Give a WOW 3.0, the enhanced platform uses responsive design to enable full functionality and user experience on any device, from desktop computers to tablets and smartphones.

"Mobile usage of Give a WOW has grown nearly 700% in the last year, and we know that figure will continue up and to the right," says Mike Byam Terryberry's Managing Partner.  "One of the paramount drivers behind Give a WOW 3.0 was the need to make it even easier and more engaging for users to view and give recognition on a mobile device."   

Give a WOW's platform is designed for users to login to a group page where recognitions to and from members are displayed on the group's news feed.  Give a WOW 3.0 features a Mongo Wall where users can scroll through recognition history, eliminating the need to click through pages of posts.  The Mongo Wall is filterable and searchable, allowing managers and users to more quickly access information about recognition in different areas of the business.

Give a WOW 3.0 presents an updated interface design with menu and recognition information dynamically displayed on any size browser window.  This design enables clients to embed their Give a WOW feed into their organization's intranet or other RSS display to added visibility.

Terryberry currently supports 100+ customers groups on the Give a WOW employee recognition platform.  The company has committed to upgrading existing customers to the enhanced Give a WOW 3.0 platform at no additional cost. In order to support a seamless transition of customized features, Terryberry's Give a WOW support team will work with each customer group to move to the new platform over the coming months. 

Terryberry will be presenting a webcast on Tuesday, April 15 to demo the new features of Give a WOW 3.0.  Interested HR professionals, program coordinators, and business leaders can register to attend by visiting https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/143355218.

"When Terryberry introduced Give a WOW initially in 2009, it really pioneered the idea of using social communication to magnify the impact of employee recognition," says Byam. "Since then, we have been committed to continuing to stay at the forefront by enhancing and adding new features along the way." 

Byam adds, "We're really proud of how Give a WOW 3.0 demonstrates Terryberry's aptitude to innovate.  It's truly like nothing else on the market in the way that it balances a robust and feature-packed framework to support virtually any organization's customized needs, while it makes it simple for users to recognize great work."

The Give a WOW 3.0 enhancements have helped Terryberry spur the rapid growth of the SaaS portion of their employee recognition business.
