Touchpoint One Launches A-GAME Contact center Gamification Challenges

TouchPoint One, a provider of employee engagement and performance management solutions for contact centers, launched A-GAME Hoops and Tiki Beach performance gamification challenges. A-GAME Hoops brings college and pro basketball tournament madness into the contact center. A-GAME Tiki Beach is a tropical paradise-themed, island-hopping quest for surf, sun, and achievement.

"Maintaining a metrics-based performance strategy doesn't have to be boring, risky, or complicated," said Greg Salvato, CEO of TouchPoint One, in a statement. "Decision-makers concerned that gamification is yet another burdensome, siloed system will appreciate A-GAME's complete integration with the Acuity Contact Center Performance Management (CCPM) platform as well as how it enables senior managers to participate directly in the fun. Effective gamification is a natural extension of enlightened performance management, and TouchPoint One continues to lead in the development of innovative performance management solutions with a proven record of delivering extraordinary business results."
