Newsbrief: Software developer BadgeVille has released Gamification Frameworks, a suite of gamification tools designed to enable companies to influence certain user behaviors in websites and apps with game-like features.
BadgeVille developed this collection of turnkey tools after deploying gamification programs for companies like Samsung, Dell, eBay, and NBC. Gamification Frameworks is meant to allow companies to increase customer loyalty and employee performance by implementing social, game, and reputation mechanics across websites and apps.
Its features include "Core Gamification" programs that focus on driving specific behaviors (sharing links to content, liking products, completing multiple steps of a transaction process), company challenges that encourage employees to compete against each other to complete various tasks, and other tools.
BadgeVille claims this is the first set of gamification frameworks released.
