Gamification is a current topic in various fields of application. This master’s thesis is concerned with the question how gamification approaches can be applied to sales processes. The aim was to identify conceivable areas of application for the use of gamification in sales and factors which are important for success. Furthermore it should be examined what requirements for a gamified software solution for the use in sales must be taken into account and which risks and limitations must be considered.
It was found that gamification can facilitate better training and development processes in sales, productivity of employees can be enhanced and an improved quality, amount and distribution of data and knowledge can be fostered. Factors for success which were identified are appropriate, clear and meas- urable goals, an open corporate culture and a positive attitude. A good game design, the use of game elements, a long-term and user-centred approach are important factors as well. Usability and compatibility had been identified as the main requirements for gamified applications in sales. But there are some risks and restrictions which one must be aware of. To these belong legal & ethical considerations, resource related limitations, undesirable effects and internal resistance.
