Ambition

Well suited: environments that crave social affirmation, social competition, or other organizations that can't incentivize success via compensation.Not well-suited: environments that support several similar roles that have different metrics. Example: we have 5 similar roles at my company that would benefit from Ambition, and each of these teams sits close to each other. It's challenging to customize Ambition to display multiple different roles with different metrics, rewards, and content. If you display the content on a screen in your office, it's best suited for only one role/team. Otherwise, you'll likely need to deploy Ambition to different teams separately, via a different account.

Qstream

Qstream is great when used for reinforcement of training conducted. Especially when that training is detailed or complex, Qstream will help to embed key concepts and drive adoption while ensuring reps are interacting.

Pros

  • Connect to our CRM, Salesforce.
  • Easily display on a shared TV screen in the office to share key metrics and content.
  • Help our sales team see the results of their hard work, and compare to their peers (if you set it up that way).

  • Gamification: gets reps involved in ways that keep it interesting while bringing in elements of competition.
  • Mobile: ease of use and direct access to reps while on the move. The interface is intuitive and able to be interacted with in quick increments rather than lengthy elearning.
  • Coaching: provides direct insights into who is coping and who is not so that enablement efforts can be focused.

Cons

  • Customization: Ambition offers specific features that can be hard to adapt to the exact metrics or content you want to show.
  • Reminders: I'd like to opt into notifications via email of key milestones, reminders to change content, etc.
  • Expensive: it's an expensive product for what you get. We don't offer incentive comp, so it's helpful to have a tool like this to socially celebrate success.

  • Reporting: we only had access to some of the reports so would have liked to see more detail and have the ability to create custom reports.
  • Licensing: we accessed qstream via Growthplay so only had access to limited features. Would like to see this extended so that we could truly experience all of the qstream benefits.
  • Content Creation: we were not able to create our own questions and streams but had to rely on the external team. Self-creation and self-directed streams would have been preferable.

Qstream is good in terms of gamification and driving adoption. However we are looking for a platform that supports content creation, ILT training as well as gamification. Qstream would meet only one of those criteria. We may still use them again if we are unable to find a compete platform in future

Qstream was easy for us to use and gain insights from. Feedback from sales leaders and reps was generally positive. Having greater flexibility about creating custom reports and streams would have increased the rating

Alternatives Considered

I have evaluated a few products similar to Ambition, at a high level. I have not used others.I implement Ambition at our office for one team, but I wasn't the only decision maker.

Qstream was selected by default because it was offered by Growthplay as their preferred gamification and adoption tool. We have subsequently looked at acquiring Qstream for other initiatives and are in the process of evaluating options

Return on Investment

  • We rolled out a new metrics launch AND Ambition at the same time. Metrics attainment has risen significantly.
  • Some reps love seeing the results publicly, and some despise it. It highly depends on the sales culture of your team. The "non-salesy" types at our company only want to know their own metrics, and not participate in sales competitions or publicize the results.

  • Reps have adopted our new sales methodology quicker and with more rigour meaning we are more successful in the field.
  • We’ve been able to create scale to drive adoption. Without technologies like Qstream, we would never be able to meet our enablement and growth targets.
  • More reps talking a consistent message means our customer experience has improved at the sales front. This allows us to differentiate versus the competition and ensures we win more often.
