Honolulu, HI (PRWEB) August 31, 2009
uBoost, the nation's premiere student recognition and rewards program, announced today its latest round of client implementations made possible through its integrations with some of the nation's largest after-school management systems and by its latest program enhancements.
Over 50,000 students will be using uBoost through their tutoring providers this year including the recent addition of 25,000 students through new clients such as MasterMind Prep, Appleton Learning, Grade Results, Brainfuse, Wonder-Space, and Academics Plus. uBoost's white-labeled rewards and recognition programs help clients maximize student enrollment, engagement, attendance, performance, and retention.
New administrative features will allow companies to offer a customized rewards program with catalogs to meet their budgets and variable specifications across single or multiple districts. By integrating with leading after-school management systems, clients are able to operate entirely automated rewards programs, without the considerable expense of administration, inventory management and fulfillment. uBoost also provides an alternative student interface to accommodate students with limited internet access.
"We chose uBoost as our rewards partner because of the large selection of quality rewards and their integration with our Cayen data program," said Doug Haynes, president of MasterMind Prep. "We also share their philosophy that rewarding our students for success results in higher academic achievement and self-esteem and improved attendance."
"We are excited to be able to offer an even more flexible platform to accommodate a wide-range of feature specifications from our clients", said John Bower, CEO of uBoost. "Our commitment to increase student engagement and support educational organizations will continue to drive additional features targeting ease-of-use, student engagement and customization."
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 redeem for 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 with publishers, district administrators, online schools, tutoring companies, and private education companies to design and implement student recognition and rewards programs.
