WARP Engine

Cut through the Clamor

By motivating audiences through competition, achievements, status and reward, gamification has proven to be effective in creating ongoing engagement and loyalty. For gamification initiatives to be truly effective, however, you need targeted strategies that are tailored to each distinct audience’s motivators and interests. And that requires a solution that’s highly configurable and rich in advanced features.

Creating awareness, engagement and impact through gaming

RocketOwl started out in the social space, launching one of the world’s first cross platform social games. GreenSpace, which launched on Facebook, iOS and several other web platforms quickly reached over 1,000,000 players. WARP Engine was built to scale with and support GreenSpace and has done so successfully, now we want to show how WARP can help other companies too.

Dymon Doc: Mobile Application developed for Dymon Self Storage to support their clients with archiving, asset management, and standardized document storage.
Dymon Self Storage required a developer to design, develop and deploy a mobile application for the customers of its Dymon Doc business. The app needed to allow small business users to manage and track the location of their archival documents and information assets held at Dymon Self Storage facilities. The app also needed to utilize an internally-developed and hosted web service interface to perform its various tasks in conjunction with a barcode driven system that allows the dynamic tracking of retrieval, movement and accession of archival assets to and from storage using a smartphone. The application was designed and developed by Dymon’s preferred developer – RocketOwl.
