Mobile travel guide tripwolf now offers white label solutions of its mobile travel guide apps to the tourism industry. Tourist boards, tour operators and travel publishers can now have their own apps for iPhone and Android based on the technology of the popular tripwolf apps. The app for the Australian tourism region Cairns & Great Barrier Reef has been built for Tourism Tropical North Queensland (TTNQ), in a joint project between tripwolf and tour aggregator TourRadar, will be officially launched on April 9, 2012.
“The new Cairns & Great Barrier Reef app built by tripwolf and TourRadar was received very well by our members and first users,” says David Inches, Director Consumer Marketing for Tourism Tropical North Queensland. “The collaboration has been very successful from the start.”
tripwolf and TourRadar have not only built iPhone and Android apps for TTNQ, but also a range of Facebook apps. All mobile and social apps include up-to-date information from local tour operators as well as hotels, restaurants and sights. The Cairns & Great Barrier Reef mobile apps also pull some of their content from the Australian Tourism Data Warehouse (ATDW). They work completely offline once fully downloaded.
“With the Cairns & Great Barrier Reef app we have shown the flexibility of our platforms”, says Sebastian Heinzel, tripwolf CEO. “We can easily customize our apps according to any partner’s requirements.” Travis Pittman, TourRadar CEO who grew up in North Queensland added,“Tourism Boards all over the world are noticing the importance of mobile and social media in reaching travelers. With these apps, TTNQ has taken a great leap forward in promoting their member’s businesses through these key channels.”
