REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/05/14 -- Next week, Bunchball, the pioneer and market leader in gamification, will redefine gamification in the enterprise at GSummit, one of the largest gatherings in the gamification industry. The four-day event held at the Concourse Exhibition Center in San Francisco June 10-13. Having recently received a notice of allowance for a "Gamification as a Service" patent, Bunchball will be a leading presence at the event, presenting multiple sessions by both executives and customers, a workshop and live demonstrations and giveaways at the booth
Organizations that engage customers and employees via gamification see a 240 percent improvement in performance-related outcomes. These successes have prompted analysts to anticipate that the market for gamification will triple in four years, leading to widespread deployments in enterprises of all sizes.
Rajat Paharia, founder and chief product officer at Bunchball, will shed light on the reasons for and implications of the ROI of gamification. He'll discuss how, by motivating people through data, gamification is fundamentally changing the way work happens. Widely recognized as the father of this fast-growing industry, Rajat is also the author of New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-seller Loyalty 3.0: How to Revolutionize Customer and Employee Engagement with Big Data and Gamification, free copies of which will be given away at the Bunchball booth.
To provide companies with an actionable path towards successful gamification implementations, Bunchball's Molly Kittle, vice president of digital strategy, and Keith Conley, director of analytics and insight, will lead a workshop on the fundamentals of a data-driven approach to gamification. Additionally, Bunchball customers Electronic Arts and RMH Franchise Corporation, the second largest Applebee's franchisee, will present their own successes and lessons learned in sessions that dive into real-world gamification deployments.
