About The Clients Requirement

The need of the client was mainly a user-centric one. He needs to make a beneficiary application that guides every tour with a real-world experience rather than a virtual one. Other than that, he needs to make an application that provides all the details in written and audio as well. The clients demand also includes highly customized applications where the user is free to create a tour on any subject. The demand for multi-language support was also on the list. Moreover, he also wants the application to be useful for the leads.

Our Challenges

Podcast:The podcast has been incorporated in every tour to convey introductory words about the tour.

Multi-language: The application is available in different languages like German, Italian, Korean, Chinese, French and Spanish, and English as well.

Augmented Reality: Through the AR option, the user could take a picture for making a tour. The images can be taken gallery or via camera directly. This enhances the real-world experience, one of the major needs in the project.

Guiding: In the guiding column, you will be able to get all guidance on the use of the application.

Integration of GPS: The Google Map API concept will pick the location where the user exists. This will also trigger the point of interest. The accessing of audio and media files is also made easy with this strategy.

Selling tour facility: The user could sell the tour through this application. Ultimately, it will help in generating the leads.

Apart from this, the team has also focused on the designing part. The overall outlook has been developed with great graphics to enhance the User-Interface and User-Experience.
