In February we held a seminar in London for the Espro Acoustiguide Group to talk about the great achievements of 2011 and the new developments for 2012. Here's a quick round up of what's new from the Group and our other subsidiaries:
Smartour App – As of February 2012, the Espro Acoustiguide Group has 64 Apps available on the iTunes Store and on the Android Market in 15 different languages www.acoustiguide.com/tours-apps
GPS is here! We can supply tours and equipment that will guide you around your outdoor site using GPS! Contact us to discuss your options
QR Codes – We can now offer Apps that are compatible with QR codes for use at indoor and outdoor sites. This is a great new way of the visitor accessing your content… it's going to be big!
France – Our French team have many new and exciting projects happening in early 2012 including the biggest and most prestigious Parisian sites; Musée d'Orsay, Musée de l'Orangerie and Musée du Louvre. They are installing an impressive range of services including Opus, iPods, tablets, Apps and cloud-based CMS solutions! As well as producing some wonderfully innovative content.
Australia – They have gone App crazy Down Under! Our fantastic Australian counterpart has taken the museum and heritage market by storm, producing a whole range of Apps for Apple and Android devices for indoor and outdoor sites. There are some wonderful installations in Australia, even our first iPad installation installed with a sound-chair! And our first GPS enabled walking tour app. Download some of our Apps here (just scan the QR Code or go directly to the iTunes/Android Stores) www.acoustiguide.com/tours-apps
USA – We are very excited to tell you that our fabulous New York team have recently won the contract with The Art Institute of Chicago! We are absolutely delighted that the Espro Acoustiguide Group will be working with such a prestigious client.
Germany – The German team have been pursuing some fantastic developments for Opus with the help of our head office R&D team; specifically new syncing capabilities, which have significantly enhanced thanks to the challenging requirements for their Swiss client, Maison Cailler.
Japan – We were delighted to have the Japanese team join the group a year ago and we are thrilled to hear that Opus is making a positive impact on the museum world all the way over in Japan… they are even the first subsidiary to ever request a white charging rack (which looks really slick by the way!) They will also be installing Opus at one of the largest aquariums in the world, "Kaiyu-kan" in the city of Osaka.
Unfortunately, we don't have the space to mention all of the wonderful projects that our subs are working on but we encourage you to contact any of our teams directly, including Taiwan, Belgium, China, Russia, Spain and Czech Republic.
