LevelEleven Releases Streamlined Version of Flagship App Compete

Company Re-Focuses Primary Offering Based on Extensive Customer Feedback

DETROIT, MI--(Marketwired - Feb 26, 2014) - Detroit-based LevelEleven, a leader in sales gamification, has announced a series of product enhancements to the company's flagship app Compete. The new version of Compete, now available via the Salesforce AppExchange, came as a result of extensive customer feedback. The revised app now offers a new, highly efficient contest-design interface, provides a series of template contests and now includes the ability for sales leaders to solve one of the most common sales challenges -- motivating consistent follow-up on existing sales opportunities.

"VPs of Sales are often worried that leads and opportunities are slipping through the cracks or aren't being followed-up on with the rigor they desire which results in lost sales," said Scott Shepard, LevelEleven's VP of Sales. "Salespeople have an immense amount of responsibilities, so today's sales leaders need quick, easy, and impactful ways to create focus and energy around what's important this week, this month, or this quarter."

In addition to speedier contest creation and a simpler, more flexible design workflow, Compete now allows sales leaders to save draft contests and jump back and forth through the contest builder, leading to faster, more fluid movement within the app.

"The original reason for launching LevelEleven was to help sales managers maximize productivity by motivating their salespeople to focus on the right behaviors," said LevelEleven CEO and founder Bob Marsh. "A key to executing on that vision was offering a technology to sales managers in a simple, digestible way so as not to distract from their other responsibilities or make them dependent on the assistance of an IT department. More than a year later, we have an abundance of active customers who have helped shape our product roadmap, allowing us to offer that same level of simplicity for managers, with better, even more powerful functionality."

Compete is currently the most popular gamification app on the Salesforce AppExchange and is used by over 130 companies including Comcast, Stanley Black & Decker, Morningstar and Concur, among others. Since launching in 2012, the app has seen major success as evidenced by clients experiencing multi-million dollar increases in sales simply by tapping into salespeople's competitive nature and desire to be recognized for a job well done.
