Honolulu, HI (PRWEB) July 22, 2009
uBoost, the nation's largest education-focused, student recognition and rewards program, announced its latest round of improvements to its already feature-rich program.
New program administration tools allow tutoring companies that service students across multiple School Districts to create and manage several rewards catalogs. Each catalog will feature distinct reward types and client-defined maximum values that meet the differing regulations from each District they serve. uBoost serves up each customized catalog, containing thousands of rewards choices, to the appropriate group of students giving the client confidence that they are in compliance with little or no administrative overhead. Robust online reporting tools such as dashboards and exportable reports enable companies to monitor program usage, point awards, and prize redemptions in real-time.
In addition, uBoost is now offering a rewards solution for Companies whose students have low or no internet connection. Tutoring companies can now offer an offline uBoost catalog with an order sheet that can be sent or faxed to uBoost for fulfillment.
"uBoost will continue to add features that address the specific needs of tutoring companies" says John Bower, CEO of uBoost. "Kaplan Tutoring, TutorVista and It's All About Kids are a few of the tutoring companies who have decided that a customized, white-labeled uBoost rewards program is much more impactful in driving retention and performance than a rewards program that is company-managed. Our commitment to the Tutoring Industry is evidenced by our full data integrations with the leading Tutoring management systems at Cayen and Scout, giving companies the ability to automatically award points to students for each session attended with a single entry into their attendance tracking software. We are also a proud sponsor and member of the Education Industry Association, working closely with the Tutoring Company coalition to understand their issues and specific needs. uBoost's Tutoring Company clients not only save tens of thousands of dollars annually in administrative costs, their students also receive a program that is more engaging and relevant than anything they tried previously."
uBoost is an online performance recognition and rewards platform where points are awarded for positive behaviors and redeemed for relevant rewards. uBoost works across all age groups, curricula, and achievement levels and offers educators an innovative way to recognize incremental improvement.
Recognition in the form of points, performance-based honor badges, and a coveted spot on achiever leader-boards encourages students to put forth maximum effort. Students are able to choose from a catalog containing thousands of rewards choices (from $.01 to $200.00) thereby ensuring that there is something that interests and motivates them. Students can purchase merchandise and gift cards; support their favorite charitable cause; customize their own safe, virtual environment; or participate in contests to win premium rewards such as iPods and Amazon.com gift cards. To maintain engagement, uBoost continues to offer new rewards and contests to keep up with students' changing interests and to ensure relevance throughout the school year.
uBoost partners directly with web-based educational publishers, district administrators, online schools, tutoring companies, and private education companies to design and implement student recognition and rewards programs.
