The companion app is a service available to all GWEN customers
The companion app implementation is the most out of the box alternative that fits perfectly if you either do not have an existing product to implement GWEN into or if you do not have any front end developers available in-house.
With this implementation your users log into our iOS & Android app and all front end is then handled by the app, you only need to hook up the events to be sent to our API.
Please refer to our API documentation for more information on this implementation method.
Can I use the Companion app for my implementation?
All GWEN customers have access to using the companion app for their implementations. It is a service provided by us to make GWEN more versatile and valuable to our customers. No added fees or costs are associated with the companion app or its content for either our customers or their users. It is an extension of the GWEN platform and its collected services.
If you are not GWEN customer yet - book a demo here to get in contact with our sales team - we look forward to working with you and gamifying your user experience!
How will my users get invited and gain access to the app?
To get started with the companion app you first need to activate this option within the admin system. You find that setting in the "Setup management" section. When activated, you can then invite users through the "User Management" section by providing an email address for each user. When invitations have been sent, the user will receive an invitation mail with a magic link that will sign the user into the system. Then the users are good to go and will be able to follow their progression and report actions performed by them within the self-report module.
What is accessed through the Companion app?
The app will display the front end services connected to your GWEN implementation. The progression and the interactions needed for the implementation will be shown here. Nothing more or less than would be displayed within your own service if doing an API-implementation will be available within the companion app. It is a way for you as a client to provide a simple and handy companion to your users accessible through their smartphone. All content accessed through the app will be administered by you within our admin system.
