Why Map Apps?

Digital accessibility

Navigating the internet isn't the same for everyone. Having a Map App ensures people with digital accessibility needs (e.g. blindness or low vision) can access your Map at any time, from their preferred device. 


Map Apps promote engagement by enabling users to add locations to their shortlists, share events with friends and get directions to new destinations, all from one place. 

Staying up-to-date

Map Apps give our partners the flexibility and functionality of an app. They also give you the option of keeping your community updated with push notifications, event updates and local news. 

Take action from the App  

Map Apps ensure that people with diverse access needs can do more than simply locate your venues on a map. Using your Map App, users can create filters that meet their needs, e.g. confirmation of accessible parking spaces and accessible restrooms. This helps current and prospective clients engage with your business more fully by:

  • saving their accessibility filters and language preferences
  • searching and filtering by interest, age, and date range
  • shortlisting their favourite venues and amenities for return visits
  • booking upcoming and recurring events 
  • sharing their favourite organisations and venues with friends and family

Send broadcasts 

Keeping your community updated about current events and important changes to your business is key to client retention and trust. Using your Map App, you can send push notifications to let users know about:

  • emergency alerts
  • upcoming events
  • planned travel, transportation or service disruptions
