Funifier Reviews & Product Details


What is Funifier?

Funifier is a gamification company headquartered in Montreal, Canada, founded in 2012. The medium, privately-held company focuses on creating customizable gamification platforms that businesses can use to increase their employees’ engagement. With a host of custom options, Funifier is great for businesses who are looking for more than an out-of-the-box solution. The platform gives you access to API’s, allowing companies to connect Funifier with other applications that they use. Triggers and widgets built into the platform also allow companies to add the game mechanics to third-party applications such as email clients, Microsoft Office, social media networks, and HTML. Applications that employees interact with on a daily basis can be integrated into the platform with widgets, and can be added to challenges and given point values for completion. Going beyond Point, Badges and Leaderboards, employees can also be engaged on the platform directly through the use of many of the 100 game techniques available within the Studio. Each user has an individual profile where they can track their progress on badges and challenges amongst others, as well as keep track of how many points they have accumulated through the various actions their perform on a daily basis. These profiles are also used on the leaderboards, where employees can see what other users are accomplishing, encouraging healthy competition. Challenges can be assigned to specific users, and can be rewarded with points or badges upon successful completion. Challenges can be assigned for any type of task, from something simple such as responding to an email, to more complex tasks with multiple steps and deliverables. One comprehensive administrator dashboard allows management to track and analyze the progress of each user. Funifier offers a complete platform for engaging employees, and with their API and social media integration, offer a solution that goes beyond most other simple workplace engagement tools.

"¡Excelente para la comunicad empresarial!"

What do you like best?

Es un software que permite y fomenta la competitividad sana dentro del entorno laboral, lo cual ayuda a incrementar las relaciones interpersonales y las habilidades blandas asociadas a la comunicación y el respeto, siguiendo los lineamientos de nuestra compañía.

What do you dislike?

Una de las cosas que me disgusta es que no existe la capacidad de editar a profundidad las plantillas preexistentes, haciendo necesaria la personalización o creación desde cero mucho más versátil y factible. Además, la plataforma de desarrollo no es la más fácil de utilizar, por lo tanto requiere invertir tiempo y esfuerzo en entrenamiento administrativo y a nivel de usuario, aunque tampoco tanto.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Requiere invertir en entrenamiento que vaya más allá del básico para ser capaz de utilizar al máximo cada una de las características que Funifier. Asimismo, si las necesidades de uso son mayores a las básicas, es necesario dejar de utilizar las plantillas y crear a partir de cero basado en ello.

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

Uno de los mayores beneficios que como compañía obtuvimos fue el incremento y las mejoras generales en las relaciones interpersonales dentro de la empresa. Además, el ahorro de tiempo utilizando plantillas prediseñadas es buenísimo si se requiere solo cumplir necesidades básicas.

Like the name implies FUN-infier, it makes doing business fun and enjoyable because of the gamification elements in it. It's quite simple to use and easily understandable as well. It's not boring to work it.

Using funifier has made the younger colleagues very serious because it adds the features of a game like a leader board, rewards and all that. That in turn has increased motivation amongst colleagues to achieve business objectives in quick time and has increased business growth as a result of that.

"Tailored design to the needs of clients"

What do you like best?

As a gamification designer being able to tailor the solution to suit the needs and culture of the client are key to me. Hence I recently partnered with Funifier, because they have a flexible solution, which I can set to deliver quests, earn achievements and rewards, have leaderboards but always with the opportunity to tweak and change as needed.

I believe this is the system to watch in 2015.

What do you dislike?

Currently the interface in version 1 is in Portuguese in some places, which is not always easy. With the great help from the team of Funifier this has never proven to be a showstopper. However version 2 will be fully in English and translated in multiple languages over time.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Let them do a demonstration of their platform on a website or internal process of your choice and you can instantly see how it works.

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

I solve engagement and sometimes performance problems for companies, these can be sales based but also HR, Learning and marketing related. On all full implementations we have achieved a positive ROI and business objectives as set with the client were reached.
