    Pros

    It looks beautiful and works really well. This is a way to gamify the sales process and reward salespeople instantly when targets are hit

    Cons

    The goals feature could be opened up to not just reflect KPIs but also include other goals, so that it's all visible within this one app. Might have to be a manual process but would be helpful.

    The software has added a different dimension to our sales team and has given them the motivation which is rare for a software to be able to do.

    Pros

    Being able to set goals and track achievement has been great for the sales department. The user interface is great and the music is a wonderful addition.

    Cons

    Setting up Ambition was a little confusing but with the support we were able to maximize the software.

    Pros

    Syncs up to Salesforce reports, Ambition can show activity dashboards on monitors in the sales room. Even can play "anthems" unique to sales reps when they celebrate a win.

    Cons

    Sometimes, the anthems can be delayed a few minutes or longer from the minute a rep has a win - setting a demo, closing a deal, reaching a milestone, etc.

    Pros

    The ability to choose individual songs to celebrate successes! Reps love having their song play after scheduling next steps or hitting their goal for the week.

    Cons

    Nothing that I can really complain about. I wish the competitions feature had more options, but we didn't really use it that often anyways.

    Among others, Ambition helps us with the following problems: - Difficulty attributing & demonstrating how metrics impact success - Struggle to communicate data that is highly ambiguous across the organization - The challenge of actively engaging an entire inside sales team in competitions These are solved by the effective data visualization and gamification components of Ambition.

    Pros

    The UI/UX is spot on with Ambition. When I was first implementing it a few months back, I likened the setup to an 'Apple-esque' experience where the usability is almost second nature and you don't have to learn some whole new set of logic.
    All too often, I instal/trial Apps & sales tools that sound great on an idealistic level, but the actual functionality just isn't there; or to get there, you have to change your whole orgs process and worry about adoption & that whole nightmare.
    With Ambition, that isn't the case - no gotchas or process change needed - it works, and works well.

    Cons

    I believe they're working on this in a future release (the beauty of Saas), but don't hold me to it.
    I wish that there was the ability to really dive deeper into the metrics by taking the data points & metrics they build out and running them through custom functions and formulas, or against one another.
    I'd love to have the backend functionality of SFDC or Excel, to really 'crunch numbers', but the ability to do so right from within Ambitions UI.

    We introduced Ambition to our BD team and saw a few immediate benefits: easy-to-create contests, increased metrics transparency (for motivation and management purposes), increased competition, and an additional venue to drive process adoption. The customer support team is always eager to help and the product overall is a valuable addition to our tech stack.

    Pros

    Increased visibility into metrics; easy-to-create contests

    Cons

    Some lack of flexibility, a few data/tech problems

    Initially, I was skeptical of 'gamification' for salesforce, being innately sketpical of all buzzwords and their associated gimmics. But Ambition is not a gimmic- it gets the fire lit on the whole team in a fun and competitive way. I love the vicotry songs, the leaderboards are great to watch, and I admit I even take screencaps of Ambition days when all my KPI fields are full & green.. Aaah, winning. Thanks, Ambition, for actually making task management in Salesforce ...fun?

    Ambition drive results from my sales team and has AMAZING support

    The people at ambition have been nothing short of amazing to our company so far. I wasn't involved in the initial implementation of Ambition and they were so accommodating to give me a full on training from front to back of all the features and tips they had in making the best use of it. As far as support goes, they're amazing. We do have a time difference but someone always responds on their chat boxes in a reasonable time. We also have metrics that some businesses track differently but we needed them tracked a specific way. They had multiple consultation calls with me to brainstorm the best way to track the metric. Highly reco Ambition over any gamification product out there - my reps are obsessed with it and it forces them to log correctly in salesforce or their Ambition score will suffer =)

    Pro: I can compare myself to my teammates 8-10 times a day Con: I compare myself to my teammates 8-10 minutes a day and could probably make 2-3 extra sales calls a day instead of it Pro: I can put a picture of myself on there to represent "the real me" Cons: No body cares about the "real me" Pro: Easy to use, great interface Con: Updates come out from time to time and I HATE change *Seriously though, it's a great product and one of the 6-7 tabs I have open all day, every day. It is a portion of my motivation every day to not be at the bottom of my group. To be able to say that means you all have done your job.
