Kiip’s Hackathon – Here Are the Winners!

On Friday, Kiip employees assembled into teams for a company-wide hackathon.

From forecasting tools to charity giveaways, the ideas were numerous and varied. But after the initial dust settled, only a few stood ready to take on the challenge of implementing a new vision in under a day.

Here were the four best proposals.

The winner

1. Automated report generation

This tool comes with a few handy hacks. On campaign activation, it automatically creates and sends screenshots of the different rewards in the context of each moment. On campaign deactivation, it automatically sends a wrap report with images of each reward and how they performed throughout the campaign. Everything is generated by the Kiip system, so there’s a precise view of campaign performance without wasting time crunching the numbers.

This hack is now live! Check out the new report capabilities in your dashboard.

1. Moments map

Moments in different verticals show up as a different colors – green for fitness, red for gaming and so on.

3. Up Kiip

Fitness junkies would love this Jawbone integration. Up Kiip is a hack that enables Jawbone Up fitness trackers to recognize and reward users’ health moments. The wearable syncs up with Kiip-enabled apps like RunKeeper, Sleepio, MyFitnessPal and more to track workouts, sleep cycles, calories burned and overall mood.
