rise.global launches free scorecard software as a service plan

Hi everyone

We’re launching our free plan today! Woo hoo!

We’ve been on a fabulous digital journey together over the past 6 years. It really is incredible that what started out as a way to manage leaderboards online has transformed into a sophisticated scorecard platform that is used worldwide to track personal growth.

Last year, thanks to our customers, we engaged over 400,000 people on rise.global, each spending an average of 25 minutes with us (It really is twenty five minutes, this is not a typo!). In terms of the modern attention economy – content served on rise.global is gold dust.

In the stats and what you’ve told us, it’s clear that rise.global is offering a unique service – not just keeping and sharing the score but doing so in a transparent, auditable and privacy friendly way.

We love hearing from our customers and here’s a sample of recent quotes:

“I love the simplicity of the service and the global exposure that being part of rise.global brings.” – K.P.

“Excellent community and knowledge sharing” – S.E

“I like the motivational aspect of the weekly rankings and I think it’s a good way to stay on top of my own online activity” – M.H.

“Rise’s trackers are relevant and transparent” – L.R.

Thank you for your feedback! We are humbled and honoured to be on this journey together.

Now as we look to the next phase of our journey, we’re making a big change to the way we price our service – opening it up to more users around the globe.

Introducing rise.global free plan

The rise.global free plan offers you scorecards for up to 100 users, you can generate and store upto 10 score bulletins – that might be 10 weeks or 10 months, it’s up to you. You can share the scores on your own rise.global page, via email and even on a TV leaderboard.

In the free plan, you can track up to 3 metrics of your choosing, and we’ve even bundled some premium connectors for you to try out – twitter follower/following count and twitter list membership.

We will be supporting the free plan by hosting adverts on the rise.global hosted scorecards and email notifications.

The rise.global free plan has some real power attached to it. We look forward to seeing what you create.

Introducing transparent pricing

At the same time we’re aware our pricing model has been a bit opaque. So we’re introducing three paid pricing plans based on the services you use. Bronze, Silver and Gold.  You can see the details of features you get with each on our new Pricing page.

What you get when you upgrade to the paid tier

Of course the paid tier will have some super awesome features that you can’t get for free.

The main benefits of moving to a paid plan are the ability to remove ads from your scorecard and full scorecard automation – including automatically embedding the scorecard on your own website, notifying your users via Twitter, more users, more metrics, more stored bulletins and more sophisticated reporting.

This has been an awesome journey together so far and we’re looking forward to the future.

Do tell us what you think of our new plans. Please do share this news on your own blog or on social media – now it’s free, we’re relying on you to let managers you know about the tool.

Happy Scorecarding!

ps. All existing paid rise.global scorecards created prior to today, will stay at the same price point, no change planned there. However we will (finally) be implementing hard user limits on your existing plans, it’s something we’ve meant to do for ages but has taken a while to implement.
