  • Easy setup for management and for employees.
  • Helps boost moral of the team in the office.
  • It grabs everyone's attention by really encouraging engaging alerts (walk-up songs etc).
  • I wish it ran in a browser and not as a full Chrome app, would have made setup easier.
  • It was nice to have default images out of the box, more would have been nice.
  • For smaller companies, it can get pricy, quick. We 100% see the ROI to be clear.

  • Simple leaderboards that stack rank individuals in the areas that you want to measure
  • Instant notifications and providing the virtual "pat on the back" when something positive occurs
  • Effective salesforce.com integration that makes in easy to administer
  • Great user community to share ideas, tips, and best practices
  • Minimal "off the shelf" backgrounds and transitions between slides
  • Very focused on the sports theme, and ESPN style gamification. I would like to see more options that are business minded, but this is really what they are so it is tough to ask for that.
  • Administration interface is simple to use, but involves a lot of clicking and saving to see what you are building in action. They suggest an easy test page which works, but when you have the final version of what you need, you have to recreate it in your live feed.

  • Recognizing reps for their success and giving them their one minute of fame is amazing. Not only does it give said rep the praise they deserve but it reminds the other reps that they need to step up their game!
  • It wouldn't hurt if the recognition songs could last longer than one minute!

  • Easy to use interface.
  • Customization.
  • Game features are complicated to set up; had to call Hoopla to walk me through it.
  • More customization in the games would be great.
  • The ability for users to check any leaderboard or page they would like to see, instead of waiting for the whole scroll to go through.
