One of the core ideas of gamification in an enterprise setting is to engage employees, i.e., to motivate them to fulfil boring, but necessary tasks. In this demo paper, we present a gamified enterprise bookmarking system which incorporates points, badges and a leaderboard. Preliminary studies indicate that these gamification methods result in an increased user engagement.
