Gemeente Almere heeft Winy Maas, medeoprichter van MVRDV, aangewezen als supervisor van de Floriade 2022. In deze rol zal Maas adviseren over de uitwerking van de onlangs door de raad vastgestelde gebiedsvisie Floriade Stadswijk en het Chw bestemmingsplan Almere centrum Weerwater – Floriade.

Hieronder valt onder meer advies geven over het Groenplan voor de beplanting van het arboretum, het inrichtingsplan en kavelpaspoorten en de integratie met het Expoplan en programma. Maas wordt supervisor van landschapsontwerp, tijdelijke en permanente vastgoedprojecten en openbare kunstprojecten in het Floriade gebied. 

Het waarborgen van maximale kwaliteit bij de uitvoering en het bij elkaar brengen van ‘beste practices’ is daarbij het speerpunt. Met de adviesrol zullen ontwerpen getoetst worden op duurzaamheid, circulairiteit, energieneutraliteit en groene initiatieven in combinatie met het arboretum die tezamen zullen leiden tot een succesvol evenement en een voorbeeld groene gezonde stad.

MVRDV maakte eerder al deel uit van het team met het winnende ontwerp voor de Floriade 2022. Het bureau werkte mee aan de verdere uitwerking van concept en ontwerp dat resulteerde in het Floriade Masterplan in 2015. Uitvoeringswerkzaamheden zijn inmiddels begonnen en de Floriade Expo zal in april 2022 worden geopend.

New Gamification Leaderboard Benefits

CRMGamified® announces that their latest edition, Hurrah! Enterprise, now includes multiple data-source integration as well as a metric customization platform. With this new edition, contact centers and business teams are able to choose the best way to display and measure their data in real time, resulting in more interactive and engaged team members.

Performance and Enhancement
The CRMGamified team understood that need and after several interations and testing, they are proud to announce that Hurrah! Leaderboards are now able to connect with the most popular enterprise database systems. This is ideal for sales call centers but also very useful for those in the customer service or collections verticals.

“We are constantly listening to customers and learning from them,” says Marcos Bacelo, Head of Product Development, CRMGamified. “A feature that was highly requested was the ability to integrate with other data sources, not just Dynamics CRM. The latest Hurrah! version includes a new data connector that is able to get information from most enterprise relational databases like SQL Server, Oracle, and IBM DB2. So now you can get this spread information and present it cohesively in the slides. You can even trigger events based on records created on those systems. We are very excited about these enhancements.”

Data Benefits for Business Team, Sales and Contact Centers
The positive impact for Sales and Customer Service Managers is enormous. Any CRM or Contact Center user will now be able to integrate existing sales data stored elsewhere-be it with Microsoft SQL server, Oracle, IBM DB2, Excel, etc.- and broadcast it right away on the TV screens. Team members are able to view the data of their performance and accomplishments in real time which results in higher levels of productivity.

This new feature proves beneficial to non-Dynamics CRM teams as well as it makes the broadcast of valuable information much easier and user-friendly, regardless of where the data is stored. Further, metrics can now be configured directly from the administration section of Hurrah! allowing more flexibility to the changing business needs of the customer. In an era of big data complexity, a tool that simplifies data integration and seamlessly works across the systems board is essential for a sales/contact center department.

Pricing and Availability
Current Hurrah! users are encouraged to upgrade for free to the latest version. Interested users are invited to view a live demo of Hurrah! Enterprise
