SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Hoopla, a leading provider of sales performance management software, today unveiled its new Game Center offering, designed to help managers create sales contests that motivate employees to achieve key business objectives. The new Game Center module is part of Hoopla’s award-winning Sales Performance Platform, a powerfully simple web application that uses proven game mechanics to inspire employees to engage in friendly competitions and publishes the results on live animated leaderboards.
Glassdoor, a social jobs and career community company, is already seeing results from its implementation of the Hoopla Game Center application. “Hoopla’s new Game Center makes it easy for us to quickly create sales contests, and is helping us achieve 100 percent participation among our sales reps for all of our key performance indicators,” said Nick Boeka, manager of partner operations for Glassdoor. “Reps see their real-time standings and their rewards on HooplaTV throughout the office, and the same competitive spirit that Hoopla already provides to our team is essentially squared when you couple it with Game Center.”
The new Game Center offering includes built-in game mechanics, animations, graphics, sounds, and images that customers can use to quickly create sales contests that tap into the natural competitive spirit of their salespeople. The system integrates with CRM systems, making it easy for managers to motivate employees to achieve specific business goals, such as the number of calls made, appointments set, or deals closed.
“There is a lot of hype around gamification tools that allow you to add points and badges to an application. However, these are often poorly implemented, and can backfire, resulting in ‘point fatigue’ and employee disengagement,” said Michael Smalls, Hoopla founder and CEO. “With Hoopla’s Game Center, sales managers get a sales performance platform built from the ground up with a deep understanding of sales culture and proven game design, allowing them to focus their attention on motivating the behaviors that matter to their business.”
The Hoopla Game Center offering is available immediately to all Hoopla customers as part of the Hoopla Sales Performance Platform. A complimentary webcast titled “How to Be a Sales Ops Hero,” featuring Glassdoor’s implementation of the Hoopla Sales Performance Platform and Game Center offering, will be held on Wednesday, May 1 at 10 a.m. PDT (1 p.m. EDT).
