How do you convince commuters to change their driving behaviour when they drive the same road over and over again every single day? The answer: with a brand and product that makes drivers aware of the situation around them and rewards them for adjustments in their driving behaviour.
Together with a consortium of companies we developed ZOOF in two projects in the province of Noord-Brabant: Brabant InCar III and Shockwave Traffic Jams A58. Your guide for the road, your guide to drive smarter. “ZOOF” was literally our promise to the drives, because through following the advice you contribute to a better and safer traffic flow. With ZOOF you move faster because the application, on the basis of current traffic data and predictive algorithms, can look far beyond what you can only see through your windshield. With the help of a recruitment campaign through emails, social media, promotions on crowded locations and loads of media attention from in- and outside of the country, we were able to recruit the needed users for our pilots on the A67 and A58.
Over 3200 drivers on the A67 and A58 have met with ZOOF in different phases between 2014 and 2017. During the peak moments in traffic on a trajectory of twenty kilometres, 300 people were driving while using ZOOF. These drivers were able to cash their rewards with franchises of Shell, Holland Casino, Praxis and more! Besides this the refreshed concept of ZOOF got a big chunk of media attention: from broadcasts to articles in the NRC, NOS, Omroep Brabant and a documentary on the Flemish network CANVAS and there was even interest shown from the South-Korean television.
