One company that has implemented gamification very well is SAP. The company engages and motivates their sales people so that they always know about the latest products and services. SAP uses a gamification app called Roadwarrior, which is a kind of "Who wants to be a millionaire" or "Quizduell". It is a multiple-choice game in which a "pre-call planning" session with a customer is simulated. If the questions are answered correctly, the players "level up" and get badges. Similar to Salesforce Motivation, there is a leaderboard which is structured as a zero-sum game. In addition, players can challenge others in a quiz battle and drive the top players from the top. Through this leaderboard, sales reps are motivated in a way that keeps them up-to-the-minute, making it fun to stay on top of the latest deals.
