Launchfire Launches StepDemo to Enhance Employee Training

Gamification expert Launchfire released a new feature this week. The new addition, StepDemo, is aimed to enhance Launchfire’s digital transformation product, Lemonade.

In the press release, Launchfire CEO John Findlay said, “With StepDemo, our clients can easily create as many product simulations as they need, and pipe them out to customers or employees — and it’s all included as part of Lemonade.”

Using StepDemo, administrators can use Lemonade’s author portal to create an unlimited number of product simulations and add them to employee training courses. With StepDemo, trainees can opt between two hands-on modes– Play and Guided Practice. The former allows users to explore the new product with guided practice while the latter is a way for them to test their understanding of the product.

Findlay said he didn’t want to create a product simulation that doesn’t stick. “It’s like when you’re driving a friend home and they give you directions — the next time you have to get there on your own, you can’t. You didn’t learn the route; you just followed instructions,” he described. StepDemo’s Play and Guided Practice modes combat that by making sure the users actually learn and are comfortable with the product.

Launchfire showcased Lemonade at FinovateFall earlier this year in a demo that is as entertaining as the product itself. Headquartered in Canada and founded in 1999, the company was honored on the 2018 Training Industry Top 20 Gamification List last month.
