Real Time Performance Metrics

Managing performance and learning begins by setting performance goals or learning goals. GamEffective tracks real time data from enterprise apps – the relevant KPIs for the employees – and shows them to employees in real time. This gives employees a running snapshot of their performance (as well as past performance) to keep them focused. It transforms performance through awareness and real-time feedback – a “fitness tracker” for work. Game elements increase motivation and focus.

Managers can easily select KPIs and weight them, creating an overall score and showing employees what the score is made of and how they are performing on each metric/KPI versus their targets, their past performance, their peers and more.

Coach to Success

GamEffective is the only enterprise gamification platform that pulls data from several apps at once – creating a better and more profound approach to gamification. Sometimes several enterprise apps connect to the system – an ERP or CRM and a knowledge collaboration system, for instance.

In many cases, the most interesting integration is with learning systems. Is the employee performing poorly on a certain metric? We can recommend a next-best-action that is based on learning, reward contributions to knowledge management or suggest better actions that end up creating new work habits.

Real Gamification

We’re pioneers in using more than just points and leaderboards in performance gamification. We can ask employees to level up, give kudos to other employees, go through simulations and quizzes, predict their performance, recognize “green” and “red” days. In fact, we’ve been recognized as the number 1 enterprise gamification platform as a result of this depth and power.

We don’t advise using the same game mechanics for everyone. Competition can work for some; other employees should work against their personal benchmarks.  Similarly, we use completion game mechanics for learning. Our success team helps you choose the right mechanics for you.

Leaderboards any way you like them

Our platform works on mobile, TV and the web. This same flexibility applies to leaderboards: they can be anonymized (me vs my past performance or benchmark), show similar employees, work by role, relative performance and more and set individual or team challenges – which sometimes results in a better response.

Any Integration. We mean it

We lead the market in the number of integrations we support – with learning management systems, knowledge collaboration, CRM, service platforms – you name it. Doing this, we give you the freedom to focus on the behavior and performance changes you want to drive with gamification. You don’t have to worry about coding, heavy IT lifting or long project cycles.

Social & challenges

Long term gamification success is about social proof (doing what others do), recognition and collaboration. Our social feed supports this well. Our challenges let employees see how well they’ve done in the past, and what they can do in the future.


Gamification is an ideal way of communicating expectations about goals and even culture. Additionally, our platform has its own notification mechanisms, reminding employees about the game they’re in and ensuring they are 100% engaged and that your gamification project is a success.

Our Customers Get It

We’ve gamified processes, performance and learning at the world’s leading companies. Contact us to learn how gamification is best served, to drive performance and move learning.


The managerial side of the GamEffective system contains sophisticated and flexible analytics visualizing performance over time and across any benchmark.

GamEffective doesn’t just track performance from the employee point of view; it also lets managers run a data driven organization by showing performance data for all employees, sub groups or even individuals. No more spreadsheets to track performance! By acting as a central repository for performance data, managers have access to the insight and information they need.

Optimizing Performance

Reports can also identify what affects user behavior, identify user profiles/segments that should be treated differentially and identify trends and exceptions in user behavior. You can optimize your deployment using this data.

Reports can also highlight specific employee needs – difficulty completing certain tasks, a need for additional training and more.

Visual Themes to Drive Motivation

Gamification is all about human-focused design, creating an intrinsic motivation to do well in the game.

GamEffective is a pioneer in the use of narratives for workforce gamification. Narratives – visual game metaphors – communicate complex achievements, reflect a journey to become skilled and knowledgeable and even foster team building and cooperation.

Our learning and onboarding narratives drive the completion of learning tasks, quizzes and simulations, and form learning and collaboration habits. They foster discovery, driving interest and engagement throughout the learning journey. They are used both in classroom environments and in on-the-job learning scenarios.

Our performance narratives are used to show how KPIs – and the combined score achieved by the employee – drive performance. Our most popular is the race theme, reflecting the personal race to become better at what you do.
