Frequently Asked Questions

Below you'll find answers to the questions we get asked the most about using Yera.

What is Yera?

Yera 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 Yera 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.

What is a "Perk"?

If you take a look in the common definition for "Perk" in companies, it is described as a benefit or advantage that someone gets when working for a company.

In Yera platform a Perk is whatever you define for your company. Some examples are:

  • a nice and powerful laptop or gadget.
  • a massage session.
  • a new espresso machine.
  • a paid day-off.
  • a travel.
  • a bonus or 13th salary by the end of the year.
  • a tiny participation of year cummulative profit share percentage (like we do here in Yera for instance).

How rewards are paid in Yera?

Rewards payments in Yera occurs when a task is completed according to a defined agreement. The platform allows you to create rules of rewarding that includes parameters like:

  • role;
  • deadlines;
  • who approves;
  • types of task (flags);
  • amount of bits to be paid;
  • on time delivery adjustments (reductions in case of delay or bonus in case of delivery in advance);
  • who is the project manager, leader or QA and how much he earns when a task is complete.

Currently, Yera rewards are executed based on software events, like a card movement from a spefic column to another in a Trello board, for instance.

In our roadmap we have also planned rewards based on key performance indicators like quality, downtime and so on.
