The fleet management company Omnitracs recently created a Zombie Dispatch game to raise awareness about the importance of truck driver training. Timed to coincide with Halloween, the new game takes a clever, gamified approach to an important issue.
Omnitracs' Zombie Dispatch game is set in the aftermath of a terrifying zombie invasion. In the game, players are tasked with completing various truck driving missions in order to save the world from the apocalypse. Challenges include navigating through rural and urban landscapes, dodging debris and managing damaged vehicles.
The idea behind the game is to demonstrate how technological solutions such as Omnitracs are necessary to help drivers do their job safely and efficiently. As Jim Gardner of Omnitracs explains, "We created Zombie Dispatch as a way to have a little fun around Halloween, and to help make drivers and fleet operators aware of some of the many products and solutions available to them."
