Inspire Adventure

Jeep owners purchase Jeeps for their unique off-roading capabilities and associated culture of adventure. Badge of Honor elevates this desire by providing owners access to the latest events and sanctioned trails where owners can earn physical badges to adorn on their vehicle.

Drive Engagement

Climb the ranks based on points earned from checking into trails, sharing photos, and commenting. Community sourced info builds on the trail details, for better preparation for the obstacles that lie ahead.

Play Anywhere

Given the lack of connectivity, while off-roading, extensive field testing was performed to ensure a seamless user experience through a unique on/offline mobile architecture. Special attention was paid to maintaining access to crucial information while on the adventure, by developing a unique back-end system devised to capture and cache user activity when no data signal is detected.

Ride With Pride

Extensive field testing was performed to ensure a seamless user experience through a unique on/offline mobile architecture to address inconsistent connectivity while off-roading.

Building a digital community for brands can make an impact in a variety of ways such as standing out in a crowded market, creating resources and support for customers, and reducing marketing costs (Nearly half (49 percent) of businesses with online brand communities have cost savings between 10 and 25 percent per year). By listening and learning from Jeep owners, Badge of Honor continues to grow and foster new levels of brand engagement for the Jeep community while generating new forms of business value for FCA.
