From the order to the installation of Kylii Kids Games

Interview with Benjamin, Kylii Kids’ Technical Manager

Hey Benjamin! You are Kylii kids’ Technical Manager. Long story short, when a customer orders Kylii Kids’ products, you take over (Purchasing, logistics, interventions schedule and after-sales service).

Why did you choose to join Kylii Kids?

I have known Kylii Kids for a few years now. And, I’ve followed its growth from the very beginning. I immediately feel that the interactive children’s play areas were an avant-garde concept. I saw an incredible potential in it!

So when Johann Gobe, CEO of the company asked me to join the team, I found the idea very attractive. He was looking for an experienced and trustworthy technical manager. I was looking for the opportunity to use my knowledge and skills acquired in an innovative and fast growing company !

When did you join the company ?

B. P. – I joined Kylii Kids 4 years ago. What stuck to me when I joined the team was the wonderful welcome I received ! I discovered a dynamic team with exceptional commitment and motivation.

Moreover, it was during the large deployment of children’s interactive corners with Flunch (editor’s note. Flunch is a family F&B and more than 80 Flunch restaurants have been equipped with Kylii Kids interactive games these last years.) We can surely say that I had to catch up quickly as soon as I arrived !

Also, when I joined the team, Kylii Kids was starting to grow fast internationally. So, I had the opportunity to take some english lessons to improve this skill upon my arrival.

What is your role at Kylii Kids

B. P. – Basically, when a customer orders Kylii Kids’ products, “I take care of everything.” I mean, I am responsible for purchasing, monitoring, equipment preparation, interventions schedule, up to the delivery and installation at the customer’s establishment.

When a customer chooses to install our interactive playground solutions (Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, Touch tables…), I make sure that all quality and procedure processes are respected. Clearly, the goal of my job is to make the customer happy and satisfied.

When we do our job well, “your start to have positive feedback on the market”.

That’s why we are constantly working our processes to strengthen our customer relationship. We are focused on customer care, support and technical excellence to high level quality to build a long-term and trustful relationship with our customers.

What is your most amazing deployment experience ?

B. P. – I would definitely say the “Primark Café with Disney” in Birmingham.

Installing our interactive games in the biggest Primark in the world was really challenging!

We have deployed a large part of Kylii Kids range with different and multiple interactive gaming experiences such as augmented Reality, touch tables, interactive floor and interactive individual screens .

That was a team’s project because we have personalized our games with Disney graphics. All of Kylii Kids’ skills and expertise were needed, from IT development to graphics to project management… And we can be proud of the result!

Feedback is amazing. The children’s area is always full. Clients are now lining up to enter the “Primark Café with Disney”!

Now could you tell us how you became a technical manager? What were you doing before Kylii Kids?

B. P. – I started studying technic and technology very soon, since highschool (mechanics, electronics, machining, electricity, production management). Indeed, I’ve always been a jack of all trades, I really like managing productions, bringing new ideas … I needed a job which moves all the time.

After being a technician in production management in a very versatile position for 14 years, I have then taken the post of production manager in a large workshop. This is a job during which I had the opportunity to manage a team of 25 people for large-scale event projects (Tour de France, Football World Cup …).

Apart from having the happiest customers in the world, what are you doing ?

B. P. – I try to spend as much time as possible with my wife and children. Because for me, family is really super important.

I am committed to supporting my sons in their activities (soccer or basketball training). I also try to take some time for myself, through sport, whether it’s mountain biking or going to watch soccer games.

From the concept to the project

Interview – Maxence Chief Product Officer at Kylii Kids 

 

Hey Maxence ! It’s been almost two years since your last interview and so, also two years since the day you’ve joined Kylii Kids’ Team. It’s time to catch up! For the records, you’re Chief Product Officer and you work on the games production and on new products conception.

As for you, which Kylii Kids game is the most beautiful of all ?

Maxence Devoghelaere – I would say … The magic lab.

Nouveau jeu mur interactif le laboratoire magique

A small anecdote, the magic lab is one our last game which just has been developed for a whole new product (Interactive wall – Kylii Wall) and it’s a “sandbox” game. Children have to try to find animations hiding in the setting by using different interactions (touch, swipe, drag, tap…) : a kind of new generation stimulation play area. Our first tester was the 5 years old Sales Director’s son. And honestly, all Kylii Kids’ Team was really proud to see his enthusiasm in front of the beauty of the game. He was repeating “WOOOOOWWWWW” while he was playing with explosions created by each potion poured into the cauldron.

And which game had the greatest graphic evolution ?

M. D. – With no doubt, Super Pilot !

It’s a gestural game where kids pilot a plane and stretch the arms out in order to fly. (Available on Kylii Air – Augmented Reality games).
When I first arrived at Kylii Kids, I asked the team which games they wanted to see quickly evolved. And “Super Pilot” was selected by everyone. So, it was very important for me to pay special attention to this game. And I think Anthony, our infographist, perfectly did the job.

What has been your greatest pride since your arrival at Kylii Kids ?

M. D. – From a product side, I’d say that it’s really Kylii Quest Challenge

Because it’s a wonderful project which has been presented to me from the beginning. Then it’s been built with all the team over the time. We have been really far on our brainstormings and tests, from the crazy idea of an holographic treasure chest to the project as it’s now.
On a human side, my greatest pride is clearly to succeed to integrate this cohesive and beautiful team really fast. And also having found a useful and gratifying place for myself and for the others ( Indeed, I hope so ! ;))

Max, tell us everything, what is the secret recipe for a new Kylii Kids game ?

M. D. – Above all, it’s teamwork !
It’s usually start from a brainstorming between me, Julie (Creative & Artistic director) and
Elodie (Account Manager). We share our ideas that fit with the product gameplay. Then we used to set the priorities. Elodie challenges them to the customer requests she has, then we define together a “shortlist” of new titles to be produced.
Then, Julie defines the universes and the artistic direction, and I take care of the game design book including the detailed concept, the rules of the game and the ergonomics / feedbacks.
Then the project is sent to the graphic production, where 2D / 3D assets are created. Then, we launch development with the integration of graphic elements and the implementation of gameplay mechanics.
And finally, it comes back to the artists for a little final touch of sparkles (FX, feedbacks …) before the validation by Julie and myself.
Even if the final validation is up to children, because it’s them the best judges of our work!

What are you working on right now?

M. D. – The finalization of Kylii Wall, our the interactive wall for kids.

The prototype of the wall mounting box has just been finalized by Laurie, our designer and we already have developed 6 games (including the magic lab). Now, we are creating 4 new games to bring the catalog up to 10 games when the solution is launched. (Kylii Kids develops new games throughout the year for each product).
We are also working on an evolution of the Kylii Quest challenge. It was initially dedicated to indoor parks only. We actually add new modes to cover a larger public and to be able to meet events or even touristic needs.

New games on ecology and nature

Kylii Kids got through these weeks of lockdown by working on a whole range of new games. And because we think it’s essential to offer families content that is both fun and smart, the latest ones are on the ecology theme !

Discover experiences of games that address children’s environmental awareness and which are about nature, water, forests, animals or plants …

Flower Power – A new Augmented Reality game on plants

It’s time to create the most beautiful field of flowers! Little gardeners are introduced to photosynthesis by experimenting it with Flower Power, our new Augmented Reality game for children.

Once the seeds are sown, the plants need water and light! So, by waving their hands, children clear the clouds to create rain and let the sun shine. And then, plants grow under their eyes.

Ecopuzzle – A new tactile table game for kids about ecology

Water is a vital resource. But if the pieces of the puzzle are not correctly oriented, the setting remains frozen and the river no longer runs its course.

The goal of the game is to reconstruct the watercourse by orienting the puzzle pieces correctly, and bring the environment back to life.

In this collaborative and multi-player tactile table game, children and their families have to listen to each other and act as a team so that nature can take its course.

And many other interactive children’s games and new digital experiences to discover!

These games, and all the new features will soon be available on the Kylii Market for all Kylii Kids’ customers.

You’re not a customer yet ? Please contact us and ask for our catalogs with ecology games but also science, catering, travel, culture and many other themes …

And soon, we will introduce you two completely brand new Kylii Kids’ products! Stay tuned for more information 🙂

Kylii Kids UK at the RBTE exhibition

Welcome to Kylii Kids UK!

After installing childcare spaces in more than 15 countries, Kylii Kids continues its internationalisation. First of all: the UK with the opening of London offices Kylii Kids UK!

 

“The United Kingdom is a particularly dynamic country in terms of innovation and digitalisation of the customer journey. However, the offer for hosting families especially in terms of interactive children’s space was almost non-existent. Hence the opening of Kylii Kids UK in London and this Franco-British partnership. It is also fully in line with our goal of international growth, “says Antoine Nuger – Commercial Director and Partner of the French headquarters Kylii Kids HQ.

 

RBTE, the first Kylii Kids UK team show

For its first public release, the brand new Kylii Kids UK team had the pleasure of participating in the RBTE. The Retail Business Technology Expo in London is the must-attend event for retailers. All the latest technologies to increase productivity and improve the customer experience are there every year. All in an environment rich in innovations and inspirations. Kylii Kids and its interactive solutions to improve the customer experience of families had their place.
