VisitMobile introduces Mobile Concierge

VisitMobile, a smartphone app for tourism and shopping
destinations, announced the launch of their Mobile Concierge solution.

Mimicking a real destination concierge, Mobile Concierge
provides convention and visitors bureaus (CVBs), destination marketing
organizations (DMOs) and business improvement districts (BIDs) with a
customized smartphone app that delivers real-time trusted advice and insider
knowledge at the in-destination visitor’s point of need.

In addition to enhancing the visitor’s experience, the
Mobile Concierge solution provides an ongoing revenue stream for the DMO and
proves delivered value to merchant stakeholders with detailed usage analytics.

“Mobile Concierge is fundamentally different than
simply creating a destination guide app or a mobile optimized version of a
destination’s existing website,” said Jeff Kohn, CEO, VisitMobile.

“Visitors who are already in the destination, need
information in a completely different format than those who are planning a
future trip. Mobile Concierge uses a powerful GPS Relevancy Engine loaded with
expert local content and multimedia to help the in-market visitor decide ‘what
to do next,’ make instant reservations or ticket purchases, and access insider
deals,” Kohn added.

VisitMobile is a significant solution for DMOs, resorts
and even college campuses looking to take back control of the conversation with
the in-destination visitor. With the popularity of unofficial destination apps
and mobile search engines, research shows that less than 20 percent of visitors
return to the destination’s website for local information after they arrive
into a destination.

Mobile Concierge bridges GPS map-based navigation and
time-based, hyper-local content to help both leisure and business travelers to
discover nearby and timely events, attractions, dining, shopping, special
offers and more. Whether a visitor has an iPhone, BlackBerry or Android device,
Mobile Concierge is available for every platform.
