REDWOOD CITY, Calif., Nov. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Badgeville, the global leader in business gamification, today announced the launch of Badgeville for SharePoint, its next generation solution to add game, reputation, and social mechanics to SharePoint community and collaboration environments. The new product will easily integrate with SharePoint 2013 as well as the newest deployments of SharePoint Online.
Companies have invested heavily in SharePoint and are migrating to SharePoint 2013 to facilitate employee and customer collaboration, but many organizations struggle to keep their users engaged. 80% of Fortune 500 companies use SharePoint and there are 150 million users. Yet only 66% of customers will use SharePoint 2013, while 28% will use SharePoint Online by the end of 2014, according to Forrester Research, Inc.¹ Badgeville for SharePoint is designed to leverage the large investments made in SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint Online by creating an engaging and personalized experience.
Badgeville’s newest product offering, Badgeville for SharePoint, is the ideal solution to motivate employees and customers to contribute to SharePoint communities and intranets to improve the quality of conversations and collaboration. With Badgeville, businesses can easily design and reward desired actions to significantly boost engagement and drive business results.
Badgeville for SharePoint features:
- SharePoint Support: Works with SharePoint Server 2013, Office 365/SharePoint Online, Yammer and My Site profiles
- Out-of-the-Box Setup: Simple configuration for common Badgeville gamification use cases including Social Enterprise, Conversation Starter, Forum Expert and Content Creator
- In-depth Customizations: Define points, levels, badges, tracks and missions with custom branding and visuals
- User Insights: View granular user activity by specific action and timeframe
The new Badgeville for SharePoint product also seamlessly integrates with the company’s previously announced Badgeville for Yammer – the key social solution for SharePoint users. Customers using Yammer, either integrated with SharePoint or standalone, can therefore also benefit from Badgeville’s gamification solution.
Badgeville President & CEO Jon Shalowitz said there has been strong demand from SharePoint customers to add Badgeville’s award-winning business gamification solution to drive user engagement and ensure that migrations to SharePoint 2013 are successful.
“Badgeville for SharePoint is an industry-first solution. No other company delivers gamification specifically tuned to SharePoint environments,” said Shalowitz. “We are thrilled to be working with large enterprise customers to maximize their SharePoint investments and drive user engagement.”
