Gamifying the IoT World

Intrepid Data designs platforms and enterprise systems that manage, monetize, operate, and extend IoT applications. Using gamification, Intrepid Data creates unique processes that generate and collect data revolving around people, places, activities and things. With Loyalty & Achievement Systems, gamification, predictive analytics, and interactive visualization, Intrepid Data implements distinctive products and solutions for their clients.

Intrepid Data defines Gamification as “Bringing game elements and game mechanics into the real world”. Have you ever received a star on a homework assignment, or had your sandwich card punched at Subway? The stars and punches are simple examples of applied Gamification. These mechanics behind Gamification are what make points and rewards systems possible.  Digitalize these examples into Loyalty & Achievement Systems to enhance your IoT engagement. Individuals that use health tracker wristbands can now receive data regarding their health in real time. They can submit this data to their online account, and in some cases have the data transmitted directly to their Doctor’s patient portal.

UPS and FedEx track over 19 million package deliveries daily. Each and every package is scanned by an IoT device on average of 9 times until the item arrives at its’ final destination. Most packages have Guaranteed Service Refund (GSR) clauses and are free if delivered after their delivery schedule. That’s an example of Gamification with IoT at a global scale. As technology advances Gamification with IoT is reaching new heights, and will only serve to provide more valuable data and revenue streams.
