7 Ways Gamification Helps You Save

All about how gamification leads to business efficiencies and further leads to cost savings.

Gamification can help participants accelerate their KPIs. It works to improve performances of sales teams, channel partners, retailers and distributors, seller networks, gig-workforce, and tele-support teams.  Here are 7 ways how gamification helps you bring cost, process and business efficiencies -

1. Save Time For Participants

Performance scorecards let your participants check their performance, earning trends, leaderboard, opportunities, incentive earnings and more on a real-time basis. This saves ~15% of total work time that participants spend on understanding and calculation of schemes.
