Problem Description

GENERAL OBJECTIVE To develop a reference intelligence system for the tourism sector, maximising its access and dissemination. Improving the dissemination, virality in RRSS with recommendations and sharing satisfaction and experiences of visits made. PROBLEMS - One of the main problems encountered by citizens and visitors is the diversity of tourist APPs that exist in each destination, having to choose which one to download and every time they change area or town they need to change application. - Small towns cannot afford to have their own APP, and even those that already have them cannot update them to the latest trends and technologies, due to the cost involved as well as the technical maintenance of the App. - Currently, tourist applications use GPS to geoposition the user and provide information about the place where they are located with the following problem: when they are indoors, in narrow streets and other places where there is no GPS coverage, their APP does not work, and most Smartphones run out of battery after 2 or 3 hours of permanent use of the GPS. DIFFERENTIATION Bluetooth technology has solved these problems as it has 100% coverage in any place and does not consume battery of the Smartphones. The OK Located solution is a proposal that offers a direct communication channel and the possibility of visiting the cities being the protagonist of your destination, thus promoting Cultural Tourism, Nature, Shopping, Leisure and Gastronomy, etc. A SINGLE APP compatible anywhere in the world. REQUALIFICATION OF INNOVATIVE TOURIST DESTINATIONS. Promote a new model for tourist destinations characterised by their greater value proposition to the user, providing greater economic, social and environmental benefits.
