What do you like best?
GameEffective offers a very robust platform that lends itself well to an established training program. The tools available produce a fun, engaging learning experience.
What do you dislike?
The analytics seem to be in the process of being ironed out and have not led to a positive experience for our team. It is clear GameEffective outsources their analytics division.
Moreover, as great as GameEffective is,, our team struggled with the implementation. Our training program is still very young and still being developed for our organization, and did not lend itself well to the GE platform. While this is an issue we must conquer. GE definite lends itself better to a more established training program looking to take it to the next level.
Recommendations to others considering the product
Timing is crucial with GameEffective, as is on going support. GameEffective is not a one time use, easy install solution and will require ongoing resources if it is expected to be successful. Weekly updates (at minimum) are necessary in order to drive user engagement.
When Gameffective works, it works. Users are engaged, competition thrives, and we see our participation values rise. When the platform is left stagnant, it becomes viewed as a waste of time and money. Ensure you have the resources to dedicate to the platform, or you will struggle.
What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
We did not have an established training program for our Pro Sales team, which we leveraged GameEffective for. GameEffective was leveraged as a catch all solution for the training needs of that department, with mixed results.
GameEffective provides a great experience at the end of the day and we have only minor grievances. Employee satisfaction and participation in out training program is up.
