Hoopla Software today announced the availability of Hoopla Scoreboard on AppExchange 2. Scoreboard allows organizations to create and display leader boards from any data element in Salesforce CRM. Changes are updated in real-time and posted to Salesforce Chatter and to an optional wall hanging display. Built using Force.com, the enterprise cloud computing platform, Hoopla Scoreboard is immediately available for test drive and deployment on AppExchange 2 at http://www.salesforce.com/appexchange/. Hoopla Software will be attending Dreamforce 2010, the cloud computing event of the year, at Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco December 6 – 9, 2010.

Scoreboard improves adoption rates and engagement by creating friendly competition through a game-like display of key metrics and bringing data in Salesforce to life through the optional wall hanging display with broadcast like graphics. As a native application available on AppExchange 2 and ChatterExchange, customers can easily install and integrate Scoreboard into their existing Salesforce environment.
“Improving the quality and completeness of CRM data is a challenge many organizations face. The mission of Hoopla Scoreboard is to help users to get their information current and accurate. Developing on Force.com allowed us to quickly build a high quality application by taking advantage of the secure and scalable infrastructure and wide variety of pre-built components.” said Michael Smalls, Founder of Hoopla Software.
“Hoopla Scoreboard is a great example of the kind of applications that can be built on Force.com - bringing Cloud 2, the next generation of cloud computing, to users by leveraging the real-time and collaborative capabilities of Chatter. This adds tremendous business value to our customers,” said Kendall Collins, chief marketing officer, salesforce.com.
Scoreboard allows organizations to create leader boards on virtually any data in Salesforce for any group. Custom leader boards can be created for sales, support, or marketing departments. An optional wall hanging display can be hung in every department that displays broadcast quality graphics and animations showcasing performers for all to see. Hoopla Scoreboard is a native application and integrates seamlessly in existing Salesforce CRM deployments. Whenever a user changes position on the leader board, a new status is automatically posted on the user’s Chatter profile page.
