DMG Consulting LLC, a leading provider of contact center, back-office and real-time analytics market research and consulting services, today released its 2017 Contact Center Gamification Product and Market Report. The Report provides an in-depth analysis of the gamification market, competitors, suites, competitive landscape, innovation, end-user satisfaction, as well as market, business and servicing trends and challenges.
Gamification solutions apply the concepts of games and challenges to motivate, engage and reward employees and customers. For employees, the value proposition of these solutions is that they help improve productivity, enhance quality, engage employees. For customers, gamification is intended to improve loyalty and engagement. The challenge for companies is to choose the right gamification solution for their culture and the function of their organization, and to invest continuously in these solutions to keep the gamification challenges fresh and compelling.
The concept of gamification has caught on in contact centers over the past few years, and vendors in other IT segments are also adding gamification practices to their solutions. Vendors of performance management, quality assurance, workforce management and customer relationship management solutions are embedding gamification techniques to improve adoption and utilization of their core capabilities and to address the needs of their customers.
“A growing number of applications and processes will be gamified in the future. Uses of gamification will include hiring and on-boarding of new employees, rewarding agents for successfully handling challenging situations, recognizing back-office and branch employees for outstanding performance, and much more,” said Donna Fluss, President of DMG Consulting. “Employees will benefit from a more enjoyable work experience, and customers will appreciate interacting with a highly motivated and engaged workforce that is committed to service excellence.”
DMG foresees the next 3 – 5 years to be highly productive for gamification providers, as this is an area that is attracting substantial interest and investments. DMG expects the number of gamification seats to grow by 30% in 2017 and 2018, 35% in 2019 and 2020, and 33% in 2021.
The 2017 Contact Center Gamification Product and Market Report provides an in-depth analysis of this growing market. The Report analyzes 6 vendors who offer gamification solutions to contact centers, although many of the stand-alone solutions can also be applied more broadly to other enterprise departments and customers. The 5 vendors covered in detail are: Clearview, CRMGamified, nGUVU, NICE and TouchPoint One. AgentBalance is covered at a high level.
