Our Reputation Engine
The Fuze Suite's patented Reputation Engine computes and manages stakeholders' Contribution Points which measure the perceived value of their contributions by other members in the community. Importantly, the Fuze Suite segments that value rating by topic and contribution type, and then displays the stakeholders' ranking. This visibility motivates stakeholders to participate in the community, contribute knowledge, share their expertise, earn points, and rate others' contributions so that they can be recognized. Check out the Top Contributors page to get a sense for how points are used in leader boards.
Unlike reputation models used in other community software that merely track total points earned or promote contributors through different levels based on total points earned, the Fuze Suite Reputation Engine provides comprehensive metrics on precisely how and when points were earned. It is an important distinction that motivates sustained contributions and enables a clear delineation of multiple types of expertise across your communities. Unless your community members are all experts in a single discipline topic and never tend to rest on their laurels, the differentiation provided by our patented Reputation Engine is critical.
