Playbasis takes the elements that make games fun & addicting and applies them to digital content. When you motivate & engage your audience by making things more fun and enjoyable, they will do more, stay longer, and invite their friends.
The Player Profile user database and registration system allows users the ability to quickly and easily register and authenticate via social or traditional sign-in methods. Users receive a profile page where they can view their earned points and achievements, while Administrators get the ability to gather data and track user behavior across one or more web properties.
Points are the foundation of games and loyalty programs. Points allow us to measure progress, reward success, and know our relational standing. Points quantify the value of every action the user takes on a website. Playbasis offers a robust and flexible points framework consisting of experience points, virtual currency, karma points, leveling structures, and reputation systems.
Badges, otherwise known as achievements or trophies, provide a way for users to showcase just how awesome they are. Players have a passion for collecting badges, and are a point of pride for many. Badges are a great way to track progress, to highlight mastery or expertise, and to provide surprise and delight in the form of discovery. We can customize badges to fit any theme or criteria.
Leaderboard are a visual representation of relative status and ranking. For players who are more competitive in nature, leaderboards provide real-time feedback about who the best players are. Playbasis leaderboards can be customized for global, site-specific, or friends-only competition. Leaderboards are a great way to surface and highlight your most engaged users.
Challenges are a series of events or actions linked together for which the user will be specially rewarded upon completion. An example challenge chain would be to visit a particular page, vote, and then comment. Another challenge could be to find three hidden objects scattered throughout the website. Challenges can also be especially useful as a site tutorial or guided tour.
Feedback is an important element in gamification because it is the primary method of evaluating a user's performance. The Playbasis messaging and notification system supports a variety of ways to provide feedback to users and to notify them of important information and events. We offer email and social network notifications, URL shortening, push notifications, and in-app messaging systems.
