About Mambo.IO

Mambo.IO is a leading option for an on-premise, open-source gamification platform. With gamified solutions for customer loyalty, employee engagement, and training / elearning, Mambo.IO allows both  custom and off-the-shelf development for your gamification efforts. 

Customer Loyalty: When it comes to purchasing goods or using products, customers have a wide variety of choices, which is why more than 50 percent of customers will not hesitate to buy or use a competitors product after doing business with you. Gamification and the Mambo.IO Platform will help you drive long-term customer loyalty and user engagement with your products and services. Whether you’re looking to increase sales, improve user engagement or create unique marketing experiences, Mambo.IO can help.

Employee Productivity: Only 30 percent of employees are engaged, this leaves 70 percent who do not care for their colleagues, your customers or business. Use the Mambo.IO platform to increase the knowledge, satisfaction and performance of employees. With gamification you can drive the adoption of all your enterprise applications and improve the overall health of your business.

eLearning and Training: A majority of employees consider learning and training an additional burden on top of their existing work load. Use gamification to maximise the enjoyment and engagement of your audience by capturing the learners interests and inspiring them to continue learning. The Mambo.IO Platform can stimulate attendance, contributions and increase focus on meaningful activities.

 

The platform’s main value propositions are its flexibility and extensibility; the open-source model makes the platform available to everyone and it can be easily customized and extended to work in almost any software environment. While it is one of the few on-premise gamification platforms available, Mambo.IO also offers a hosted solution for companies who don’t want to manage infrastructure or don’t have specific data handling requirements. The platform can define, track, and reward any behavior, and includes powerful analytics tools to help you design effective and engaging rewards, levels, missions, or points assigned to any number of custom metrics. It also includes leaderboards to boost competition and allow your users to benchmark their results against their peers’. It incorporates recognizable engagement strategies like coupons, activity feeds, and also offers several off-the-shelf widgets to help save time when designing your gamification strategy. Last but not least, Mambo.IO offers rich REST APIs, Java / PHP SDKs, and is built on the eminently scalable MongoDB database and Java engine. The platform can be deployed on both Windows and Linux environments.

What do you like best about this product?

Platform is very versatile you can use it as it is or create vast integrations with current envirioment. API is easy to implement and Mambo provides libraries for most common languages.
People behind Mambo are great, support is very fast and helpful. Next version of platform are promissing. If you plan create whole organization gamification or connect products with game features this is the right choice.

What could be improved about this product?

User administration GUI should be improved it’s functional but need some UX work.

What was your main concern about buying this software?

There wearen’t are issues with buying, installing software. Main concern is about if the platform meet our requirements, event best documentation do not show real life issue. You can have a 3 month testing phrase so it will help to make final decision.

What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you seen?

Internal gamification platform with many integrations (CRM, HR, Intranet, eLearning).

How likely would you be to recommend this software to a friend or colleague?

What do you like best about this product?

The application offers an immense flexibility when it comes to implementing a game system into your business. Whether this is a learning experience, a stand alone game or as a tool for performance support! With the software I am capable of defining the basic elements behind the game rules as points, levels, achievements and leader-boards. Using behaviours I implement the game rules and I can call on these behaviours using the well built API.

What could be improved about this product?

The product is quite extensive already. We are currently implementing a game which requires social interaction between peers of learners in groups of five or six. However it is currently impossible to have a group be an entity within the software. However, this is a feature request we put in with the organisation AND they are building it.

What was your main concern about buying this software?

My main concern buying this software was the question “Am I going to be able to use this software for this question?”. It is a relatively new platform; (to me, at least) and I couldn’t really see or experience the system where it was fully implemented. However, we were able to use a demo environment before implementation and integration, this was a big plus!

What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you seen?

I needed to implement an RPG game system within a learning environment to enable upcoming entrepreneurs in school to develop themselves in skills like communication, innovation, teamwork and strategy. This involves presenting the game information as clear as possible but also being able to have an intrinsic set of rules that influence multiple sets of points under different conditions. The technology behind the application is very robust and enables organisational developers to really get creative with their gamification fix.

Potential platform for custom build gamification

What do you like best about this product?

At the Rabobank we have used Mambo to gamify our innovation courses by integrating it with our Moodle course environment.
The Mambo platform is not a stand-alone platform with gamification elements but it adds these elements to your own software. This way we could create a more sustainable system since we did not need to convert our employee base to a new platform but we were able to design a gamified system within our own architecture.
This product stands out from other gamification platforms because of its flexibility. It is not your cookie cutter ‘Point-badges-leaderboards’ platform with just one solution, but a flexible platform which makes it possible to really design and implement your own system.

What could be improved about this product?

The platform could improve in its user friendliness. The barrier for configuring the software and maintaining it is above average and some HTML/CSS knowledge comes in handy. Although the support from the Mambo team is excellent, the platform could be improved by making the admin processes a little bit more easy to use so that no considerable technical knowledge is necessary.

What was your main concern about buying this software?

My main concern was wether this software was easy to integrate with our own systems. In the end the most difficult part lies with my own organization (due to its low API readiness) but not with the possibilities of Mambo.

What business problems are you solving? What benefits have you seen?

We wanted to increase the students engagement in our innovation course. Although this is hard to measure (also due to the lack of metrics for the previous years) the evaluation with students and the teacher showed us that the mambo system created a new dynamic within the course which showed an increase in engagement for the entire length of the course.
