We here at A2s have previously ranked the top awards management software companies out there. That post has generated a ton of positive feedback, so it makes sense to delve a little deeper into each individual awards management software. Today the two businesses in focus are awardsCMS and WizeHive. This article will compare the two, and hopefully give you a better idea on which to choose.
Looking for complete customization of online forms, judging criteria, etc? Want to work with some of the friendliest customer service people in the business? Look no further than awardsCMS. awardsCMS’s software is very easy to use, with one of the shortest learning curves out of any awards management software. Once the decision has been made to go with awardsCMS, they will take you step by step through the process, ensuring that you know how to use the software and that all the information in your online forms are correct. Their software can sometimes be a little pricier than competitor’s, but since they focus on awards you can be assured that you will get the most bang for your buck.
Next we have WizeHive, another good option for awards management software. Wizehive’s software offers most of the features you would expect. You have the ability to customize forms, enter judging criteria, and they too will work with you to ensure you are satisfied with their product. They work with some pretty big names, including Blackboard and the United Way, so it’s obvious that they know what they are doing. However, from an outside perspective it seems as though Wizehive focuses more on software for generic workflow management, as opposed to just specializing in awards.
Side by side both awardsCMS and WizeHive compare similarly. Both companies produce excellent software which will make your job a whole lot easier. What it comes down to is who you would rather work with. awardsCMS really specializes in the awards industry, but they tend to be pricier. WizeHive may be the more economical choice, but tend to concentrate on software for scholarships/ small contests. The only way to find out the best fit for you is to give them a call!
