POPGuide offers its users a high-quality, self-guided audio-tour of a city's main points of interest. Users can also reach all points of interest very easily by means of the offline digital map, wherever in the city they may be, their user experience further enhanced by the innovative "Get Me Home" button.
POPGuide is a revolutionary product designed for all categories of hotels as a source of innovation, exclusivity, profit, cost-saving and prestige; the added-value which is currently so lacking in the tourism industry. Imagine being able to offer your guests a city map which is fully functional and navigable offline that includes an original audio-tour in over 7 languages, also directions (either on foot or by car) to reach points of interest or to return to the hotel ("Get Me Home") and numerous other advantages for your establishment.
Once the user has downloaded POPGuide on to their smartphone or tablet from one of the online stores, it will be you the hotelier who provides the user with their log-in details.
The internal layout of the App will take on the colours and branding of your hotel, so the user associates it with your establishment. The Home Location on the map, i.e. your hotel, highlights any information you want to share with the user: address, telephone number and email address, link to online reservation website, also to the social media and TripAdvisor profiles of the hotel.
From time to time you will receive a usage report compiled from the activity of your guests, in order that you adapt your own offering to an evolving market.
This is just the start, as including your own mark-up you can still market POPGuide to your guests at a truly competitive price!
The Commercial Partners of POPGuide have exclusive access to the POPGuide back-end service platform and are the only ones able to create entry codes for their guests by following a few very simple steps.
