Products and Services or Concept/ Project
When you are visiting a new city as a tourist or a business traveler, you want to get an overview. You might not find the time to prepare yourself, buy a guide book or look things up on the internet. On the other hand, local information and sightseeing services are not easily accessible, have limited operation or opening hours or are just too expensive.
Your smartphone in combination with modern satellite navigation has the potential to show you around.
Our challenge is to combine good public transport navigation with high quality information brought to you in automatic position-based audio guides.
Our app offers free audio guides for tourists in cities. The guides are tailored for public tram and bus lines and played automatically based on the current position. The app assists to navigate the public transport system. For local business owners, we offer new innovative marketing possibilities. The app allows them to reach new customers (tourists) while they are close to the business' location – with a much higher conversion probability compared to radio or online ads.
