SAN DIEGOand REDWOOD CITY, Calif., May 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Badgeville,
the #1 gamification platform, today announced that their customer Autodesk,
Inc., earned top recognition in the Gartner CRM Excellence Awards for their
Badgeville-powered integrated marketing campaign. Autodesk, the market leader
in 3D design, engineering, and entertainment software, won the Gartner award
for increasing software trial usage by 40% with gamification techniques built
on Badgeville's Behavior Platform.

Due to the power and sophistication of Autodesk's software, a user license can
be a significant investment for a professional user. This makes software
trials a critical component of a customer's purchasing decision. In fact,
company data showed that prospects were twice as likely to purchase Autodesk
products if they had used the software at least three times during a 30-day
trial period.

"Badgeville has enabled us to exceed our goals in trial downloads for our
initial campaign," said Dawn Wolfe, Sr. Digital Marketing Manager, Autodesk.
"The Behavior Platform's flexibility has also enabled us to expand our
gamification program and test new ways to successfully engage our customers
across our flagship products such as AutoCAD."

Through this joint awards program, 1to1 Media and Gartner spotlight excellence
among organizations that take a customer-centric approach to improving their
business performance and have seen exceptional results from doing so. The
winners were selected by a panel of judges, including Gartner analysts, 1to1
Media editorial staff, and business experts.

"The 2013 winners showcase excellence in customer centricity. These 12
customer-focused leaders demonstrate how an enterprise commitment to making
improvements to the customer experience and investing in the right
technologies, processes, and people can lead to real financial gains," said
Mila D'Antonio, editor-in-chief of 1to1 Media. "1to1 Media honors these
companies for their leadership in support of, and innovations geared toward,
advancing their organizations to becoming customer centric."

Scott Nelson, managing vice president, Gartner Research, points out, "The
continued evolution is placing more emphasis on areas such as social, mobile,
and analytics. But the organizations that won this year's CRM Excellence
awards show that the key is to balance those new areas with solid strategies
and vision, effective process redesign, and a robust infrastructure to deliver
real client value."
