Our Innovation Analysts recently looked into emerging technologies and up-and-coming startups in the logistics industry. As there is a large number of startups working on a wide variety of solutions, we decided to share our insights with you. So, let’s take a look at promising gamification solutions for the logistics industry.
Heat Map: 4 Top Gamification Startups
For our 4 picks of gamification startups, we used a data-driven startup scouting approach to identify the most relevant solutions globally. The Global Startup Heat Map below highlights interesting examples out of 500 relevant solutions. Depending on your specific needs, your top picks might look entirely different.
1000 Realities – Gamified Training & Learning
Gamified training is used to train employees for their tasks, safety measures as well as emergency situations such as accidents, emergencies, fires, overload of products, breakdowns, etc. Polish startup 1000 Realities, for example, creates an interactive platform used for training newcomers in a gamified way. Employees learn or adapt to the working process and memorize equipment characteristics in a natural environment to promote engagement and employee interaction.
Maxst – Gamified Guidance
The picking process becomes easier and faster when employees don’t waste time flipping through the manual without guidance. The way out is a real-time guidance system which provides necessary information about an item in front of employees’ eyes. Another benefit is that Augmented Reality (AR) guiding tools can be both – interactive and informative. For instance, South Korean startup Maxst focuses on training a user and evaluating correct picking. The company uses an easy-to-implement content management system, apps, data analytics tools, and smart glasses in combination with tablets or smartphones to achieve this.
KallocStudios – Virtual Reality-Based Simulation
Simulation in logistics is implemented as a method to analyze and manage the logistics supply chain as well as working processes. Simulation models have received an update to a more gamified design to make work more interactive and visual. US startup KallocStudios uses Virtual Reality (VR) to improve many processes in logistics. Among them are validating work, designing and scheduling changes, simulating prototypes, modifying site logistics, and furthering the project to the distribution and reveal.
Beekeeper – Conversational Interfaces
Providing proper communication and information updates among employees is achieved with the support of innovative connectivity platforms. These platforms work as communication networks and can include operation updates from the Autonomous Guided Vehicle (AGV) fleet, for example. US-based startup Beekeeper provides gamification initiatives such as surveys, polls, and quizzes for increased employee engagement via the integration with multiple operating systems and communication channels.
