The online Serious Game called Blossom Flowers, and developed technically by KTM Advance, enriches the GET-IT City portal.
Blossom is a management and role playing game, where the player manages and develops a business through the smart use of technologies. The player’s mission is to save, manage and develop a flower business, to increase turnover and to improve customer satisfaction. To achieve the mission, the player runs the plantation and the office, interacts with the clients in the market place and gets advice in the resource centre. The more the business grows, the more new situations occur and the more skills the player develops.
With the help of its partners MEA-I, UNIDO, World ORT, HP has rolled out the GET-IT program in over 100 centers in 30 countries in Europe, the Middle East and Africa, reaching more than 100,000 young people through combined online and offline training courses. HP and its partners plan to grow GET-IT even further to reach over 500,000 young people by the end of 2010.
