The Most Gamified Platform in the World: Skylab Apps
The Science of Engagement and Gamification. Skylab Apps quest to build the World’s most gamified platform.
Gamification is all around, and everything is going mobile.
What is the impact of Gamification?
Many people get confused by the term “gamification” The “game” part of the word can be considered somewhat of a misnomer. Many associate gamification with gaming (the kind that entails either online poker or long hours in a dark room playing Call of Duty).
When the term “Gamification” is used, people usually tend to think; “Interesting, but how can something like video games create value in the real-world and furthermore, how would I monetize or even quantify implementing it?” In other words, It sounds nice in theory, but I think this is a gimmicky fad that has no substantial impact.
Well, as it turns out, Gamification has transformed into a massive global industry grossing more than $2.8 billion in 2016 alone and projected to almost double to $5.5 Billion by 2018.
“The adoption of applying game mechanics in more non-traditional industries has grown exponentially in the past 18 months”
Wanda Meloni, M2 Research
Skylab Apps believes that Gamification is the future and uses the term “Meaningful Play” when describing the intuitive Human Factor Integration which enhances social, educational, and psychological interactions among users. It is not a game all in itself; it is more of an application of game components such as learning, engaging, training, badges, and recognition which is essential.
The Gartner Group projected that 50 percent of corporate innovation would be “gamified” by this year. All of this interest is occurring because the concept has been proven to motivate employees and customers. Skylab Apps is a company that is focused on understanding trends and creating technology that already has major tracking or is disrupting an industry.
By combining all learning modalities in to and an easy-to-use, visually stunning user experience, we are able to massively boost user engagement across all of our client’s platforms. The Gamification engine is what combines and drives the core features in the Skylab Apps Platform. We don’t stop there. Our platform is delivered to our clients across all major native mobile platforms including iOS, droid and a Web App that has a CMS (Content Management System) or what we like to call the command center. This is the client’s backend user interface where they can customize the entire platform in a Wordpress-like environment.

Jonathan Gale, CEO of NewVoiceMedia.
