Sodexo Engage, specialists in employee and consumer engagement, has today launched its new ‘Discounts by Sodexo’ mobile application. The app allows employees to buy from a wide range of discounted eVouchers right from their phone, to use instantly in-store and online.
Available as a free download on App Store for iPhone and on Google Play, employees can buy, use and manage their eVouchers on their phone. Whether it’s discounts on the weekly supermarket shop, a meal out or cinema deals, the app will make it easier and faster to save, whenever and wherever people are.
Sodexo Engage’s full line-up of discounts currently offers access to savings across a range of sectors – from the essentials to luxury and leisure activities. It offers high street discounts at over 130,000 retail and entertainment locations across the UK as well as cinema discounts at 600 venues, holiday deals and affordable technology payment plans, amongst a wide range of health and wellbeing offerings.
Sodexo Engage’s benefits scheme currently accounts for annual employee savings of £70m, and annual employer savings of £25m. With the new streamlined easy-to-manage app hub, employees will be able to enjoy discounts on impulse, rather than pre-emptively, allowing them to make more use of the benefits available to them.
Rachel Barbrook, HR Operations Manager of De Montfort University, a Sodexo Engage client, praises the new app:
“The launch of the App has come at a great time for DMU as we are refreshing our rewards offer. The feedback we have had from staff indicates that it’s much easier to use and it has helped to refresh and revitalise our rewards brand.”
Jamie Mackenzie, Director at Sodexo Engage says:
“Giving staff the benefits they deserve goes a long way to helping improve employee engagement, motivation and all-round morale – but that only works if employees are actually making use of what’s available to them.
“A well-oiled benefits system needs to keep up with modern demands for instant gratification. Giving employees the freedom to access savings at their fingertips will do just this, encouraging a deeper level of interaction with the discounts platform. We want to make the employee experience that little bit better, every day.”
