Surrounded by inefficiencies
Halfords’ physical reward programme brought the usual headaches. Each card had to be loaded with a predetermined amount by a member of staff. Once completed, the card was sent via post to the recipient. This manual, time- consuming process had a burn on productivity and came at a huge financial and environmental cost.
