Frequently Asked Questions

Below you'll find answers to the questions we get asked the most when using bitPerk.

What is bitPerk?

bitPerk is a digital platform which offers a gamified and very transparent way to motivate your software/creative teams and connect them to the real company goals. You basically define a set of reward rules for the stuff you need to have accomplished (like deadlines, quality and so on) and when your team/people accomplish it, if approved as per your defined rules and validator, they earn automaticaly "bits".

By the way, this will take us to the second most common question.

What is a "bit"?

A "bit" is the basic unit of value used in bitPerk platform.

When you define a reward rule or define the value of an accomplished task you're basically speaking about how many bits you want to give to your team for that.

These "bits" can be later exchanged for "Perks" and, finally, this will take us to the third most common question.
