A next generation engagement solution for internal employee and external customer communities.

Learn about CommunityFirst in this short video:

It’s what people do in the community that matters…

“With platforms, the assets that are hard to copy are the community and the resources its members own and contribute…. Healthy platforms track the participation of ecosystem members that enhances network effects—activities such as content sharing and repeat visits.” (Harvard Business Review)

Why CommunityFirst™?

Companies have invested $billions in social enterprise and external community platforms to bring the promise of faster, more interactive and richer communication with all stakeholders. Whether the goal is to facilitate employee collaboration, engender customer self-service, or promote exchange between the company and its constituents, organizations that use these platforms struggle to keep their customers, partners and employees contributing, participating and engaged.


Gartner has reported that nearly 72 percent of customers never log in to online communities! Social enterprise and external community platforms don’t include Digital Recognition by design. Some have limited or simple Gamification mechanisms but none have the behavior recognition, layered reward and experience pathways capable through the Badgeville platform. Badgeville combines the its industry leading Digital Motivation Platform with its MotivationMetrics analytics solution to deliver the first true Digital Recognition system. Badgeville packages this solution with a pre-set range of behaviors that customers can reward, see and measure across their community.
