Innovative, customer-specific solutions


Together with our customers, we develop specific software solutions in all major programming languages. This allows us to satisfy genuine needs and meet strategic objectives in the tour guide and the POI information provision sector. Moreover, we take care of the entire project planning process from drawing up specifications to the final deployment of software. Continuing support after launch and software updates are part of our service which we provide as a matter of course. Before we develop anything, we identify customer and passenger needs, determine requirements and design solutions on that basis. Other options include linking to a content management system, a statistics function, NFC (RFID) and WLAN.The following projects are just some of our most recent innovative software developments:

The smartphone app is the most dynamic, cutting edge, and mobile version of a multimedia guide – whether as a city tour or for a museum or hiking trail or .... and this could be a very long list! But wherever information is provided for visitors, the latest technical applications able to access new target groups need to be part of the mix.

App Platform

The App Platform provides a unified platform for the apps for a group providing related tourist services, giving visitors the convenience of a one-stop site with all the members of a particular association (e.g. the members of the German Federal Environmental Foundation -DBU).

By accessing the App Platform and the app generated by it, visitors can enjoy GPS-triggered audio information as well as images, texts or videos on the individual points of interest. The platform’s architecture provides each association member with a dedicated database allowing tours and information to be uploaded via a simple content management system (CMS).

The generated app has a responsive design, automatically adapting to any screen size. As a result, it can also be displayed on the association member’s own website. In addition, since the application uses a hybrid programming model, it is also platform independent. With playout automated in such individual mobile systems as iOS and Android, this represents a significant saving in time and cost.

Software Solutions


The itour NEC Guide is a unique, robust, Android-based smartguide offering various options that can be combined modularly based on individual requirements.

It is used as a river guide for cruises on Europe's rivers and therefore an audio tour can be enjoyed aboard ships.

The device can also be used to guide visitors around cities by GPS.  A city map stored on the device also allows users to get their bearings, with a blue button indicating their precise location.

This provides them with an autonomous way of finding out interesting facts about a city courtesy of the in-ear audio guide.

The itour NEC Tour Guide can also be used as a transmitter and receiver for group tours with a guide.

Its menu navigation is extremely simple and easy to understand for all age groups. Using the specially developed icons, it is easy to switch between the City Guide, River Guide and Tour Guide modes, making the itour NEC an all-in-one device.
