HiThrive is a mobile application that enables customers to send gratitude to employees across industries. Such industries include service, retail, food, and countless others that involve customer-employee interactions. It is a whimsical, positive-only experience that spreads good vibes between users and employees they encounter. Users benefit by feeling good about themselves and occasionally receiving discounts at businesses, employees receive prizes and a record of positive employee feedback, and the company benefits by having motivated employees and happy customers. Happy customers turn into loyal customers, who buy 90% more often, spend 60% more, and are 5x more likely to come back.
