Listen Technologies offers technologies that deliver social distancing solutions with Wi-Fi, GPS-automated content in multiple languages to help destination site owners, tour operators and guides sell more tours with less effort and grow their businesses.
“The pandemic has completely changed the way the world does business. Sanitation procedures are more important than ever, and customers want technologies that enable safe and seamless travel experiences,” said Jonathan Stanley, chief experience officer and president, Listen Technologies Canada. “Listen Technologies is helping tour business owners and operators topple language and accessibility barriers while providing safe, social distancing solutions that bring sights and destinations to life with compelling stories.”
Listen Technologies tour solutions include Navilution Next, Navilution EVO, ListenTALK with full social distancing capacity, and Navilution Listen EVERYWHERE. Navilution Listen EVERYWHERE is the sightseeing industry’s first affordable, plug-and-play, low latency, streaming passenger entertainment solution that enables social distancing on passenger vehicles and vessels and in venues. Navilution Listen EVERYWHERE makes it easy for tour business owners and operators to deliver compelling, GPS-triggered content to visitors through their smartphones and other smart devices. The product combines the power and versatility of Listen EVERYWHERE, Listen Technologies’ award-winning audio-over-Wi-Fi solution, with the precise GPS triggering of Navilution Next, a wireless commentary delivery system.
Navilution Listen EVERYWHERE works on tour operators’ wireless networks and enables them to offer multiple audio sources to visitors so they can listen to tour narration in different languages, no Internet required. Visitors simply scan a QR code to download the free app on their Android or iOS devices, select their preferred language and listen to automated, location-based content, without handling operator-provided equipment or gathering in a crowd.
“The prevalence of smart devices is enabling personalization, storytelling and accessibility in tours and destination sightseeing,” said Maile Keone, president of Listen Technologies. “Listen Technologies is helping tour business owners and operators deliver outstanding visitor experiences while maintaining social distancing and safety requirements.”
“We’ve always been about helping tour operators grow their businesses, and that’s never been more critical than it is right now. We will showcase technology and storytelling techniques that can give them a distinct edge over the competition and help them sell more tours with less effort, even during these challenging times,” said Stanley.
