What is your primary role when using this product?

I help lead the Neuroscape Experience project; planning & strategy, deployment.

What business problems are you solving with Spinify?

We used Spinify as a tool to help gamify our inaugral version of the Neuroscape Experience Challenge. The project was designed to let researchers beta test latest versions of our in house cognitive training games and provide feeback to the dev. team. Points were given to highest and most consistent scorers .We were able to gather valuable feedback from the users and also induced the fun quotient in the process thanks to Spinify.

The Results

The pilot helped us realize the utility of a tool like Spinify and how it can help galvanize projects like the Neuroscape Experience. Most of our work we do at the center involves gamification and it was pleasant experience for us to use Spinify to bolster our efforts.
