Historical Concierge for Tourism Centres with Microsoft Surface 1.0 / 2.0
Infusion creates historical concierges for the Public Sector with Microsoft Surface to engage visitors at tourism and visitor centres.
Following are some features of the application:
- Provide users with a graphical and interactive experience when discovering the province.
- Deliver a solution that would be interesting to adults and fun for children during interactions.
- Leverage the province's existing and extensive multimedia assets (photos, videos, etc.).
An interactive map of the province displays various categories of attractions, hotels, etc. using Infusion’s operational dashboard Falcon Eye and Bing Maps. The mapping module also includes a route planning feature that permits users to identify their travel path on the map and select specific pushpins to learn more about the various sites and attractions they will be passing. Users can build an itinerary and print it on site or send it to themselves via email.
Tourists are able to select from a variety of scenic images of the province where they collaboratively paint and send the resulting image as a virtual postcard to their friends and family. This postcard is then delivered via email to a targeted recipient from the user, offering both a unique user experience and the opportunity to capture name, email, and demographic data.
The Jigsaw application, intended for children, selects an image from the tourism library and separates it into several pieces that then require assembly.
Infusion's historical concierge Surface application for the Government of Manitoba received a Microsoft 2010 Impact Award in Custom Development Solution of the Year.
