Wendy Stunt is hyper about technology, and with justification, as the Director of Booniverse.
Booniverse is a company creating digital infrastructures for towns and cities around Ireland in the form of apps, including the “Dublin App”, which was just launched in November.
The App is far from a ‘stunt’ but rather a well executed piece of technology by the Dublin Chamber of Commerce Ambassador, that allows effectively for locals and tourists alike to discover what is happening in Dublin.
Local attractions, great spots to eat and stay and a log of events and activities; are just some of the areas covered by the free to download app, which is available for both Android and Apple phones.
This App is described as a hyper-local app – one allowing people to ‘plug-in’ to all that is happening in the city. Interactive mapping is a key feature of the app, as well as useful information and a one-touch system to contact every business on the app.
Stunt, who won the ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ at the Irish Women’s Awards last year; is mindful of all that our island has to offer in terms of outdoor activities, and with 26% of all visitors to our green shores coming to walk and hike, a key component of the app is the numerous interactive hikes and trails, and self-guided tours, which are available alongside business listings.
The App is also a transactional platform, where businesses can sell tickets, promote special offers and sell their goods and services.
The App is also available for other towns and cities, including Galway, Cork, Tralee, Killarney, Midleton, Youghal, Cobh, Fermoy and Carrigaline.
2020 looks set to be an exciting one ahead for Stunt and Booniverse, with a number of other Irish towns and cities; along with some in the UK and Spain set to come on board.
