Singapore, Singapore, 2009/02/24 - DC2Go reaches over 2 million readers and viewers in Singapore per month via its web, mobile and hotel city guide portals. Now in the back of taxis in partnership with UzoneMedia’s iCabTV, DC2Go is the world’s first truly pervasive digital city guide - DC2.
DC2Go, Singapore’s #1 digital city guide is now available in the back of taxis following an agreement with UzoneMedia to put the guide inside its iCabTV service in the back of the newest Comfort and CityCab taxis.
With information on over 1,000 restaurants and shopping outlets, hundreds of pubs and nightlife options and recommendations of what to see and what to do, DC2Go is the most comprehensive multimedia guide ever created.
The partnership between DC2Go and UzoneMedia enables Singaporeans and tourists alike to easily access DC2Go’s digital city guide in the back of 1,000 Comfort and CityCab taxis via a touch screen interface.
Dannie Francis, CEO at Cellcity, creators of the DC2Go service said: “iCabTV round off a perfect 360 degree digital circle for the city guide. From Bluetooth at the airport to access in the taxi, to web and IPTV inside the hotel room and from our web and WAP site to the application on mobile phone, we even make the information available in online and offline modes so mobile users can minimize data and or roaming charges.”
This is another ground-breaking feat for DC2Go following the announcement in December by NTT Docomo Intertouch that DC2Go would be available inside its hotel web portal service at over 20 four and five star hotels in Singapore.
Apart from a comprehensive offline directory for restaurants, bars, shops and tourism outlets, the service also provides next generation street directory services, weather forecasting, news, flights information, and an online search.
UzoneMedia is the leading operator of the largest mobile infotainment media network in Asia. Its iCabTV platform is Singapore’s premier in-taxi digital infotainment network, consisting of high-quality touch-enabled LCD displays with GPS mounted inside the passenger compartments of Comfort and CityCab taxis. UzoneMedia’s iCabTV network is truly a digital OOH media that is captive, interactive, and measurable.
Jim Chuang, President and CEO of UzoneMedia said: “Our partnership with DC2Go resembles our commitment to enhance and deliver richer media contents to our iCabTV viewers as well as provide great media value for our advertisers.”
To celebrate the launch, UzoneMedia and Cellcity are bundling advertising rates offering any businesses in Singapore the most affordable advertising rates in the industry.
There’s never been a more affordable way to reach over 2 million readers each month.
