The user experience is very similar to a gig app experience. There is nothing to download and the interface is not only extremely user friendly but it is branded to your company.
What is the difference between internal ratings and Google Reviews?
When the customer fills out the star ratings within the link, that is considered an "internal" rating, which means that only the service worker (they will receive a text message) and admins (seen in the admin dashboard) of the company will see. If the customer leaves a 4-star or higher they will be prompted to fill out a Google review. As of right now they are mutually exclusive in the request. Internal ratings are gathered when a consumer selects a 1-5 star rating in the Applause web app (Found Here). These ratings are visible to the company (in the Applause Dashboard) and to the employee (receives a text message) who serviced the consumer. Google reviews are reviews found on a business listing on Google and are visible for the public to see. Applause allows consumers to go directly from the app to Google in order to post this type of reviews.
Is there a place that my employees can see their tips and ratings?
Yes, employees can download and use the Applause App in the App Store or Google Play Store in order to see their tip balance, view their ratings, and transfer funds to their bank account.
Why can't I see my employees in the mobile app?
At this time th mobile app is only for service workers who are receiving tips. Managers logging in to this app will not see any employee information. To see data on overall and individual employee performance, managers must log into the dashboard via a web browser. If you are unable to log in to the dashboard please contact your administrator for assistance.
Is there a place where managers can see the tips and ratings for all employees in one place?
Yes, as a manager you have access to the dashboard which will show you all the data in aggregate or at the individual employee level. You can see ratings, tips, customer comments, etc. all in one easy to access location. If you have not received access yet please contact your administrator.
