OSLO, Norway, Feb. 27, 2018 /CNW/ -- Game-based learning platform Kahoot! today announced the launch of Kahoot! Pro, a premium version of Kahoot! designed for sales people, marketers, event managers and trainers to use with customers, partners, prospects and others outside the company.
Kahoot!'s game-based learning and trivia platform is the fastest growing learning brand in the world, growing 75% year-over-year with 70 million unique monthly active users in K-12 schools and universities, corporate offices, social settings and major sporting and cultural events.
"We launched Kahoot! Plus in October 2017, our first premium offering for employee corporate training. The product was very well received by our business audience, revealing a high demand for using Kahoot! outside company walls," said Kahoot! CEO Erik Harrell. "Kahoot! is already used extensively at large events such as conferences, sporting events, amusement parks, movie launches, concerts, as well as smaller events such as company offsites and customer events. To tailor the experience to businesses that want to take Kahoot! outside the company, we created Kahoot! Pro. The idea is to give our users a way to showcase their company and products in an engaging, interactive way through games."
"As a creative agency, our goal is to provide memorable experiences and campaigns for our clients," said Christian Kruse, Social Media Advisor at JCP Nordic. "We used Kahoot! as an integral part during the launch of the new season of popular quiz game show QI for BBC in Norway, which gave the campaign an engaging and fun edge. We are excited for the launch of Kahoot! Pro which will provide a premium experience for agencies such as ours."
"We decided to incorporate kahoots during the halftime at home games in the 2017 season and it was the best decision ever!" said Daniel Engebretsen, head of visual entertainment at Vålerenga, a premier soccer club in Oslo, Norway. "To see a crowd of 3,000 engage in one activity at one time was a rush. We are excited to use Kahoot! Pro in our future games as the premium features will be a great value add to our match day experience, organization and commercial partners."
Kahoot!'s offerings for businesses now include Kahoot! Plus and Kahoot! Pro. Kahoot! Plus offers everything in the basic version plus premium features for internal classroom and mobile training. Kahoot! Pro includes all the features of Kahoot! Plus and allows to use Kahoot! for selling and marketing products, presenting and training outside the company.
