Active travel incentives for cities
BetterPoints enabled Bologna to motivate 22,000 people to change their transport behaviour, by using positive incentives.
We can do the same for your city.
Learn how people behave and why
Our unique baselining tool builds your organisation a clear picture of people’s current behaviour, attitudes and capacity for change.
Our team of experts in behaviour change work with you to identify the optimum target audience and build a survey that asks the pertinent baseline questions for your objectives.
Rewards and incentives
Use our award-winning technology and smartphone app to deliver carefully tailored promotions, messages, rewards and incentives to reach and engage as many of your target audience as possible.
Behaviour Change programmes
Change bad habits, at scale, anywhere
This is where the magic happens. We work with you to build a scalable programme of gamification, incentives and rewards, all bound together with sophisticated messaging plans, that truly motivates people for sustained engagement towards your goals.
Create an attractive programme in which your users are keen to track their activity with their smartphone, earn rewards for doing so and engage in fun activities and friendly competition.
We will build you a tailored solution for incentivising behaviour change that integrates seamlessly with your existing programmes and structures and generates useful datasets for measuring and reporting impact.
Central to every BetterChange programme is our sophisticated, yet simple-to-use, smartphone app, which serves as the interface between you and your users. This is where they track their activities – manually or automatically, collect their rewards, redeem their points and receive your news and messages.
BetterPoints programmes are multi-faceted complex interventions that combine digital engagement with gamification, rewards and intelligent messaging.
Intervention components are designed to interact with other campaigns and delivered in the context of what is happening in your organisation or community.
With BetterPoints you will accelerate engagement in campaigns and motivate ongoing participation, across communities and social groups. Our unique, scalable combination of gamification, activity tracking, rewards and messaging initiates engagement, builds interest and foments traction.
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 Boosted Events (such as double points for Car-Free Day) to maintain engagement.
All components are designed to interact with other campaigns in the context of your own environment.
All challenges – core and mini – work by cycling repeatedly through four key steps:
- Prize draws
- Treasure hunts
- Device accelerometer
- User interaction
- QR codes
- Route maps
- BetterPoints to spend or give to charity
- BetterTickets prize-draw entries
- Push notifications
- In-app updates
- Quizzes and surveys
- Scheduled and triggered
