Presentation of the concept of serious-game


An innovative business-game.

e-yaka is a business-game mainly aimed toward students. It allows players to manage, as a team, a competitive company on a market against others teams. For that, e-yaka provides numerous tools to help take decisions : accounting (financial results, loans), marketing (market shares, distribution of sales, notoriety, customer portfolio), prospecting (canvassing, offer proposal), or different information about the market and the competitors. e-yaka stands out and innovates by the liberties given to the animator (choice of market, various settings) and the possibility given to players to canvass prospects one by one (Business to Business).

Our contribution to the project


The main goal of our contribution is to ease and make more pleasant the idea of "Business to Business". In order to have a more global vision of the market and a greater ease at spotting particular targets, we implement an interactive map displaying prospects (companies that players want to canvass) and their information (business sector, number of warehouses...). This map takes into account the state of the game, notably information known by teams, and has filters allowing an easy and pleasing search. The same thing is possible via a list. Similarly, we allow players to see companies that are already client with a second map/list similar to the first one. A third web page allows players to canvass prospects if they still have tokens (number of prospections remaining). The admin has the possibility to change that number when creating the game. Finally, players are already able to submit their propositions contract to prospects but we improve this by allowing the proposition by the map and/or the list.
