Helm collaborated with ZiZo, an employee gamification platform, to bring their concept to life and design a product that would revolutionize employee motivation and productivity. Through a Design Sprint, Helm guided ZiZo in validating their idea, identifying essential features, and creating a realistic prototype for further development.
ZiZo is a gamification platform that focuses on enhancing employee motivation, engagement, and productivity. The founder approached Helm with an idea for the platform but required support in validating it, pinpointing key features, and creating a solid plan for development.
During the week-long Design Sprint, Helm worked closely with ZiZo stakeholders to create a clear goal, generate individual solutions, decide on the best ideas, and build a realistic prototype. The prototype was then tested with potential users and stakeholders, gathering invaluable feedback and insights.
Helm executed a structured, step-by-step process that aimed to address the challenges within a week. The Design Sprint involved:
Zizo has achieved impressive milestones in a short period. With over $1 million in total annual recurring revenue from its current contracts, the company is set to expand its operations further. In anticipation of a $3 million to $5 million seed round raise this year, ZiZo aims to accommodate its growing team and customer base after having raised a $200k pre-seed round in 2021.
As the business continues to flourish, employing around 25 people, ZiZo expects to double its workforce by the end of the year. Additionally, the startup has formed a partnership with Salesforce with plans to integrate Zizo technology into Salesforce's platform by year's end. This strategic move will grant ZiZo access to Salesforce's entire client base, further accelerating the company's growth and success.
Helm's Design Sprint played a pivotal role in shaping ZiZo's gamification platform. By providing expert guidance and a well-structured process, Helm enabled ZiZo to validate their concept, identify essential features, and create a prototype that laid the foundation for a successful employee engagement and productivity tool.
