Since the first prototype of the interactive goal wall time has passed and our experience grew. Showing the goal wall at several exhibitions we recognized that it needs some more features which would enhance the whole experience. So we've created a companion App for ranking and competition purposes on the iPad. Using this at the exhibition was a real driver for all participants to try it out and come back later to see if someone's better. The ranking was so to say a real game changer and motivator for everyone. Not only the ranking has been introduced but also a rebranding of the whole CI fitting the exhibition needs.
For the companion App there are only three important areas. First of all the settings for the exhibition to get everything going and set up the server and the Wi-Fi.
The other two important areas are for the the crowd. The last match is for the latest player to register, write his name and take a photo which then will show up in the rankings.
The rankings are just a quick overview for the participants how good they are and a motivator to be even better next time. At the exhibitions we had the opportunity to honor the best players with little giveaways which resulted in an enormous participation and a very positive feedback.
Competition is a great trigger for user participation and a lot of fun!
