“AirGift was the perfect solution because they had built the simplest NFT distributor that embed seamlessly within our flow. We simply had to connect the API to our employee database and to set the condition for automatically sending a NFT on employees’ birthday.”Smartway
Smartway is a company that fights against food waste. They have developed software for food waste management. Following the event of Covid19, the company started to implement a remote working policy for its collaborators in 2021. While the transition seemed to have worked well, Smartway realized that its employees were starting to feel disconnect from the company as a whole. Hence, Smartway was looking for a meaningful way to engage with its employees to maintain feelings of belonging.
SmartWay decided to start its quest for renewing links with its employees by gifting them special NFTs on their birthdays. They though that sending token of appreciation on their employees special day was an effective way to show that the company care about their position in the company. “Sending NFTs to whish happy birthday was very adapted to our situation because the gift meant to our employees that they were not forgotten among the company. Working remotely can sometimes make workers feel isolated in the company.”
Having designers in the company, Smartway had prepared the visuals of its “Happy Birthday” NFT collection, but they had no clue on how to distribute the NFTs, especially since they have more than a thousand employees to wish Happy Birthday to. “AirGift was the perfect solution because they had built the simplest NFT distributor that embed seamlessly within our flow. We simply had to connect the API to our employee database and to set the condition for automatically sending a NFT on employees ’birthday.”
From the employee side, if it was their first time interacting with NFTs, they were given the opportunity to use AirPocket wallet to retrieve and own their NFT. The wallet is custodian so they didn’t have to worry about losing their public keys, and access to the wallet. “AirPocket was a very important service that AirGift provided us with, as many of our employees had never set up a wallet. The experience is as simple and intuitive astheir NFT distributor platform. Besides, they could transfer ownership at anytime to another non-custodian wallet if they wanted to.”
