Elinext Group, an international alliance of custom software development companies, announces that its city guide solution is now available to cities, towns, communities, travel agencies and services providers around the globe.

July 12, 2012. Traveling and tourism are booming these days. This upturn is accompanied by the accelerating growth of smartphones and tablets. Ubiquitous smart devices allow tech-savvy consumers make their travel experiences far more inspiring, enjoyable and individualized. Elinext Group, an international provider of professional software solutions, is delighted to announce that its expertise-based city guide and promotion platform is now available for a widespread use by both the public and the private sector.

Availability of all the necessary information right at finger tips is a very important factor for modern travelers. Increased customer satisfaction can translate into a sustainable competitive advantage. Those cities and local services providers that wish to “communicate” with guests as well as residents efficiently are now faced with the necessity of having their own city guide mobile apps with rich functionality.

“The travel industry is getting highly competitive. Cities and towns strive to get more visitors and travel agencies – more customers. Our high-quality city guide platform allows to deliver exceptional experience to end-users’ smartphones and tablets. Everyone can create with it a personalized travel guide,” said Maxim Dadychyn, Elinext Group’s Project Manager.

The main features of the mobile app include interactive maps, individual travel routes, ratings and sharing in social networks, trip planning assistance (e.g., bagpacking list, flight tracking). Data concerning location-based services can be obtained and stored on mobile devices first in the online mode and then be used in the offline mode.

“Our application can cover information about tourist attractions and historical sites, local hotels, restaurants, casinos, religious places, interesting events to attend and take part in, night clubs, transportation details, useful phone numbers, tips for travelers and more,” proceeded Maxim Dadychyn.

Additionally, the city guide solution can be upgraded with in-app purchase features like weather updates and forecasts, Green Map (interactive map with information on the condition of the regional environment), real-time Augmented Reality (AR) extensions, live video streaming (e.g. of local events) and NFC (Near Field Communication) payments.
