Traveling to a new city or country is an exciting adventure, but it can also be overwhelming. Navigating through unfamiliar streets, deciphering foreign languages, and understanding the cultural significance of landmarks can be challenging for even the most seasoned travelers. That's where Travel Companion comes in - a cutting-edge geolocalized software system designed to enhance the travel experience by offering an immersive and interactive audioguide.
Travel Companion® is an innovative software based on the geolocation technology, that turns any personal smartphone (android or iOS) into a personalized interactive and location aware visitor guide. It is composed by a cross platform player (APP) that can deliver automatically multimedia content to a user whenever it comes in proximity to a given point of interest, and a management platform that allows the creation of multimedia contents to be delivered.
Our platform helps local authorities and administrations to present in an new way all the beauties, points of interest (even the most hidden) and also helps tourists, residents or visitors allowing any user to explore the place in-depth without following any predetermined itinerary or timeline. The product’s “heads-up” approach and use of geolocation technology greatly increases visitor engagement and satisfaction and Travel Companion technology enables content to be updated or revised in real time, making it ideal for temporary exhibition.
Gone are the days of carrying around clunky audio-guide devices or relying on outdated guidebooks. With Travel Companion, travelers can now have all the information they need right at their fingertips. By downloading the app on their smartphones, users gain access to a vast library of audio-visual content that guides them through their destinations.
Each content can contain text, pictures, videos, geo-location map , audio tracks, and will be developed in different languages, transforming user’s smartphone into high-quality, cost effective interactive personal tour guide. Travel Companion allows the user to personalise the content by creating his own point of interest, taking a picture, shooting a video, recording the position and his personal voice message, bringing back home pleasant memories to share with friends and family. This platform is highly flexible and can cover other domains (like educational and hospitality) by creating specific thematic contents in the form of gamification or augmented reality applications, for outdoor and indoor settings
