ITCL has developed for the Junta de Castilla y León a Serious Game so that SMEs can understand the value of incorporating ICTs in their companies.
The Serious Game simulates a real shop which includes different ICTs that help to improve sales and services. In order to achieve the objective of the game, the user must attend to his clients, carry out the management of the shop and, when available, attend to his ICT’s.
During the game, the user can include various ICTs that will help him improve faster. However, the user must demonstrate that he knows the technology and that he knows which is the best option for his business. If he succeeds, the technology will give him advantages, if not, the technology could harm him. The Serious Game also contains a mini challenge to better understand the advantages of one of the technologies: the POS in front of a cash register.
