A private challenge for you and your employees

Because every company is different and every participant has different needs, we decided it would be best to put you in charge.

Try Our Demo

Sometimes it's just better to see things with your own eyes! That's why we've created a little demo challenge for customers to try.

It replicates a challenge already in progress, so you'll be engaging in the same way your own participants will be when you launch yours.

What can your employees expect from the challenge?

After all, this only works if your employees are truly motivated by the challenge and can easily engage with it. We've spent 4 years developing this system so it works as seamlessly as possible.

After you initially tell your staff about the challenge and where to sign up, you can sit back and watch the rest unfold.

1. Easy Sign Up

Using the app, or your newly-set up challenge website, participants can sign up using only their email, name and whatever password they choose.

2. Creating Teams

Once they are on the system, your employees can create teams and invite other users to join.

3. Logging Activity

Once in a team, users can log their activity via the website and apps or they can sync their smart devices such as Fitbit and Google Fit and Apple Health.

That's it, that's all that's required of them. Three simple steps and they can be up and moving in a few minutes!

Leaderboard Segments

Each team can be assigned to one of the segments you choose. Team members will see both the global leaderboard and the leaderboard for just their segment. Here's some examples of how it might work for you...

You want your Glasgow and New York branches to have separate leaderboards and one company-wide leaderboard

We all know that the Glasgow branch are a bunch of hyper-fit athletic gods, and everyone in New York cycles everywhere, so we'll split the leaderboards so that each branch can see how their local teams are doing as well as the company-wide leaderboard.

You want to split the leaderboards by departments

The accounting department are overly competitive and HR are surprisingly laid back. So let's have mini-competitions within departments, with each having its own leaderboard.

Users separated into groups of 2,3 and 4
Different team sizes

Some areas of the company will struggle to get teams of 5, so why not let teams choose which segment they belong to and split the leaderboards into teams of 3, 4 and 5?
