Incorporating gamification incentivizes employees to proactively increase production and wages.

Gamification promotes an ability for workers to be proactive and pull work to the next stage to both minimize downtime and increase output.

Opensoft, Inc., a leader in graphic arts workflow automation solutions for web-to print applications, will be presenting a case study on the success of gamification in print manufacturing during Idealliance Experience 2017, an annual conference for the graphic and visual communications industry.

Robert Godwin, director, business development, Opensoft, will share how implementing a series of interconnected workflow automation and gamification systems for employee assignments at a Kentucky print facility empowered employees to self-manage more of their time and responsibilities. Employees were able to triple their pay while significantly reducing direct labor and costs of goods sold.

“Gamification promotes an ability for workers to be proactive and pull work to the next stage to both minimize downtime and increase output,” said Godwin. “This automated workflow not only reduces the barrier to entry for mid-skilled labor, but also provides more opportunities to contribute to the success of the business.”

In his example, Godwin will explain how incorporating gamification with an automated workflow incentivized workers to maximize workload volume and efficiency to increase earnings. Using Opensoft’s intuitive user interface informs both employees and management of current and near-term workloads, allowing employees to self-organize to gain maximum points and increase their hourly rate.

The full case study will be presented May 5 at 10:15 a.m. at Idealliance Experience 2017 in Tucson, Ariz., where business leaders will present strategies for automating customized workflows to content and media creators, print and digital providers, and technology partners.
