Gamification platform

4.86/5 (7 reviews)

Playoff overview

Playoff is a web-based gamification platform designed for use in HR, sales, marketing, and eLearning. The software allows users to create and manage their own custom games to motivate and engage employees, with avatars, levels, progress bars, points, badges, leaderboards, and more.

With Playoff, users can create gamified experiences by combining processes, rules, metrics, and teams to form a game. Users define which metrics they wish to use for measuring performance, what actions players will complete, processes to build player journeys or skill trees, game rules, and leaderboard setups. The rewards available for different actions and processes can be customized, with chance mechanics to control how often rewards are applied. Playoff also supports multiple leaderboard scopes, covering the entire game, all teams of a set type, or players within a single team, and leaderboards update automatically in real time.

Playoff can be used to engage both employees and customers through different experiences. eCommerce can be gamified to increase customer loyalty by assigning missions to customers with rewards such as advance promotions or exclusive discounts, and awarding points for actions. For training and eLearning, avatars, multiple levels, and progress bars serve to motivate learners to continue along their learning path. In sales, Playoff’s points system can be used to both reward and penalize players, and a social feed enables peer-to-peer recognition of achievements. Playoff can also be customized to suit a range of needs and products, allowing users to apply it to many areas of their business.

I really appreciated its agnostic nature. It’s a very flexible software and the staff I worked with it’s so brilliant and exciting.We opted for the on-premise license. The great staff is supporting us on the definition of gamification strategy for our company. I liked its ease of use and, above all, the possibility to simulate the game you’re building and its ability to manage tones of informations in a short time.

My work involves the management of b2b and b2c projects in which usability and rate ration are key elements for success: the use of gamification as a motivational lever; creating habits and consolidating best pratices thanks to progression and reward is very important. Playoff is a platform that is on the market as a layer that we can add both on new projects and on existing projects, integrating it through its APIs: this is fundamental for companies like ours that develop custom projects.Creation of gamification design: immediate usability, thanks to the tutorial and documentation Possibility of simulating and verifying the functioning of the design in real time Neutrality of the layer with respect to frontend technology The possibility of being used also by non-technical profiles
