GetBadges is cool

What do you like best?

1. Easy to integrate with development tools.

2. Great way to motivate developers.

3. People at our company were speaking about the monsters next to the coffee machine ;)

4. It helps to foster good practices like pushing your code frequently and with a passing continues integration builds.

5. A responsive team behind the idea - one of the integrations was created for us in less than a day from the moment when we sent the message that it would be nice to have it.

What do you dislike?

If the whole team can participate it's great. But when you're involved in projects where it's hard to convince the client to add it to their stack, some people are left out of the game.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A great tool when you develop a software product and you want to have more fun when working on it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The major value here is to foster good practices and an additional thing that motivates the developers.

Fun and useful

What do you like best?

GetBadges became an unexpected (and wonderful) surprise. While we had tried different

gamification tools in order to improve our working experience, none of them did really work out

for our company. Most of them are suitable for different types of activities, but our engineering

scheduled work was hardly compatible with their mechanics. Sometimes, those tools were just

too complicated, or not fun at all. However, with GetBadges we discovered a multisync tool that

worked perfectly with Trello, our main productivity platform, allowing as to check and follow

individual and team progression, while enjoying the RPG perks it provides. And all that, without

becoming a distraction. A real “must try”.

What do you dislike?

Trello activities could show just active panels, instead of all the available ones. Nothing else so far.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Helped us tracking activity and motivating developers.

What Gamification solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

Booster that every team needs!

What do you like best?

1. The overall concept of incentivising software development process.

2. Ease of integrations with regular most used software development tools.

3. GetBadges works as big motivation booster for the team.

4. In a high paced startup, no one adheres to formal methods of SDLC but if they get points for everything they do (even for raising a ticket in JIRA), people are motivated to use it. GetBadges did the exact same thing to us. Suddenly everything came in line for use. All the tasks were getting tracked.

5. Team gets motivated to work hard since now there is a dashboard where everyone can see who is performing how.

What do you dislike?

1. Name could be better :)

2. Advanced customisations.

For example: An admin should have privileges to set the points (HP) to each task and

ex: Travis build should be around 100 for our use case and github commits should be weighed around 10.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

1. SDLC Process can be easily streamlined and maintained.

2. It worked really well as a motivation booster for the team.

3. Nice way to thank team member and appreciate their work on regular basis.

What do you dislike?

New features are added very fast so it is hard to find something bad that would be fixed in nearly future.

The only gamification platform suitable for dev company

What do you like best?

Integrations with dev company tools like Jira, BitBucket, GitHub, build and ci tools.

What do you dislike?

UX can be improoved, but show me software where there is nothing to improve in UX... thats what I thought...

There are no alternatives, I have look so far that we almost started developing it ourselves. In my experience if you are a dev team - getbadges is the way to go.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Motivation, stimulating best work practices threw awards in gamification, fun.

Great Motivational Platform

What do you like best?

Integration with JIRA SD and HipChat, the fast response from the development team and constant feedback.

It was truly a way of providing some "fun" while keeping work going.

What do you dislike?

We would like to be able to have more customization for game scenarios and also to be have the ability of setting badge points.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We saw a huge team communication improvement wich was a key point for testing this platform.

Productivity was also improved.
