Serious game developed by SweetRush for Bridgestone tire sales associates chosen for its high quality and engagement

San Francisco, Calif., June 20, 2016 – The International Serious Play Competition announced its 2016 winners and honored SweetRush Inc. and its client Bridgestone Americas, Inc., with a silver award in the Corporate category.

The winning entry was Counter Intelligence, a sophisticated, scenario-based, serious game available for desktop and mobile that SweetRush developed in collaboration with Bridgestone. The game serves as the culmination of a sales and product knowledge learning program and challenges sales associates to use all the skills they’ve acquired in the program.

“More and more companies are looking to game-based learning because of its proven high-engagement levels,” said Arturo Schwartzberg, Chairman and CFO of SweetRush. “Yet we know it can be a challenge to produce learning games internally. Working with a vendor-partner that offers a blend of instructional and gaming capabilities, you can work collaboratively to develop and deliver serious games that are both fun and effective.”

The International Serious Play Competition recognizes outstanding examples of titles that deliver a high quality of engagement and learning opportunities for students, employees, or other education or training situations.
