The BetterPoints platform

Cutting-edge technology for changing behaviours

BetterPoints technology is designed to drive multi-faceted, complex interventions that accelerate engagement in campaigns and motivate ongoing participation, anywhere and at scale.

How we do it

The BetterPoints mobile
app combines tracking, motion sensing and user interaction with sophisticated server side algorithms that verify activities and characteristics.

We then link this information to different types and levels of incentives that are awarded to people when they meet certain behavioural goals, such as exercising, completing an activity or trying something new.

We can combine the goals and rewards in myriad ways to meet the client’s objectives and budget.

How it works

Each intervention is delivered as a core challenge that typically lasts for 3, 6, 12 or
36 months and uses a mix of goals and rewards to deliver your objectives.

Within the core challenge there can be any number of mini challenges, games and events to maintain engagement. All challenges work by cycling repeatedly through four key steps:

By taking advantage of technology like
this, BetterPoints can target incentives and communications to the right people at the right time.

Gamification

Medals

Award medals for achieving goals.

For example, a Challenge Player might win a bronze medal for exercising once a week, a silver medal for exercising three times a week and a gold medal for doing it every day.

Leaderboards

Arouse competitive streaks!

Pitch players against each other and watch them jostle for top postion.

Prize draws

Offer entries into a virtual tombola.

Players can earn BetterTickets, which are entered into a draw for BetterPoints or physical prizes.

Teams

There’s strength in numbers!

Allow players to form teams so goals can be reached and rewarded through their combined effort.

Rewards

BetterPoints

BetterPoints are reward points with real cash value.

They can be spent through the app on vouchers or converted into donations to charity.

BetterTickets

BetterTickets are like raffle tickets.

They are automatically entered into prize draws for larger pots of BetterPoints or specially chosen rewards.

Vouchers

Our rewards catalogue holds a wide range of vouchers for high-street retailers.

We can also enable EAN13 barcode scanning for voucher redemption.

Plus, we can create vouchers specially for your local shops.

Local retail

We make it easy for local shops and services to offer rewards.

Our unique Tap&Clear technology allows small businesses to redeem vouchers directly through customers’ devices, safely and easily.

Custom rewards

Create your own!

In addition to the mains vouchers catalogue, we can include special rewards on behalf of clients and their sponsors.

Donations

Feed your players’ appetites to help others.

Players can choose from dozens of charities to donate their BetterPoints to.

We can also inclue charities and community groups of your choosing.

Messaging

App timeline
