Runa, formerly WeGift, Closed First Half of 2022 on a Tear, Achieving Major Milestones in Brand Catalog, Team Growth and Client Acquisition and Retention
Runa, the industry leader in digital rewards and incentives, announced a number of significant achievements in the first half of 2022. In the first six months of the year, the Runa team added more than 120 major, beloved brands to its catalog, signed more new clients than in the entire previous year and passed 100 full-time employees.
“After closing our best year ever in 2021, we’ve taken things to a whole new level in 2022,” said Aron Alexander, CEO and founder. “Payouts from organizations to individuals have long been slow, cumbersome and expensive. We’re on a mission to fix that. The customers, partners and team members we’ve added in the first half of this year will help us accelerate our growth and bring more innovation to an industry that sorely needs it.”
In the last six months, Runa has added some of the world’s most-beloved brands to its catalog, including AirBnB, Nike, Instacart, Dunkin’, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Aldi and many more. In many cases, Runa is the first and only gift-card platform to integrate with these brands, adding to an industry-leading catalog that offers rewards and incentives that will delight any recipient.
“Runa continues to be a major partner,” said Joel Tobias, director of Strategic Alliances at Perkbox. “The integration was simple, and we saw an impact almost immediately. We’ve increased our available brands, continue to improve customer satisfaction, and cut our administrative time significantly. Working with Runa has been nothing short of a huge win.”
Customers are taking notice, as Runa’s client roster has exploded. In the first half of the year, notable new customers included WishList, ThanksBen and Xoxoday, among many others. The company has signed more new customers in the first six months of the year than were added in all of 2021, while existing customers are extending their engagements and renewing agreements. Organizations of all types are tapping Runa’s network to underpin rewards through their platforms, as a solution for their own reward and incentive needs or both.
