Saint John Walking Tours

Client : Discover Saint John

Problem

The city of Saint John wished to offer visitors a solution allowing them to plan their visit in advance. Their goal was to be able to communicate with their visitors efficiently via a mobile application providing information on events, good tips, ideas for restaurants, etc. “We wanted to offer the best possible experience regardless of their preferred device”, said Jilian MacKinnon, Manager of Marketing and Communications for Discover Saint John.

Solution

Deployment of Sidekick Tourism, our native mobile solution for iOS and Android. The mobile app allows the user to navigate via circuits, or on a map. The user can visit the city by exploring circuits that include points of interest with site descriptions, a hyperlink and media content such as audio guides, pictures and videos. Circuits and stops can be shared on social media and downloaded for use offline (without a cellular network).

Strong Points

  • Launching of a native mobile app offering rich content with an engaging user experience
  • The city of Saint John uses our Content Management System (CMS) to add to and edit the contents of the app
  • Highlights the history and dynamism of Saint John

Sidekick’s product was exactly what we were looking for to turn our walking tours into an app. The CMS was easy to use and the end results are beautiful and a great way to showcase the Saint John Walking Tours.
