The vision that drives us:
The ultimate interconnection of physical space and the digital sphere.
Let’s get phygital.
Physical places are falling behind in the digital world.
Stores, cultural venues, museums, showrooms, exhibitions, galleries, archives, zoos, hotels, malls, eateries, city centers, amusement parks: they are all challenged by the increasing digitization of our world.
60% of all interactions already take place online – with a strong upward trend. The consequence: falling visitor numbers, declining sales, dying city centers. Yet physical places are home to a wealth of knowledge and an experiential value that the purely virtual world cannot offer.
UpVisit empowers those without access to digital experiences
The operators of Places have recognized the need for digitization. The demand is gigantic: cities and museums tender for thousands of apps every year; the need is also great in retail.
If Places want to offer exciting, multi-media customer journeys rather than just appear on a map, the only option today is to develop their own apps or go to agencies – both of which are enormously expensive and time-consuming. Unfortunately, this results in numerous silo solutions, often paid for by taxpayers’ money, that fall short of expectations: People complain about poor service or lack of acceptance more often than not.
Our founders noticed at some point: Places have similar needs and could bundle their power in one platform. Users also want this bundling. That was the beginning of UpVisit.
We are the first and only platform that enables Places to deliver digital experiences regardless of size, budget or capacity. We empower our Places to create digital experiences on-site and increase their visibility everywhere with a low-cost, convenient, automated solution. We’re empowering visitors to find and explore Places in a whole new depth, and even make purchases like tickets in a centralized and personalized platform.
We also want to help public-sector clients: UpVisit offers a way out of the bidding madness and makes it possible to enrich special places like landmarks, museums and city centers with digital experiences without having to invest vast amounts of time and taxpayer money.
With everything we do, we deeply believe in making an important contribution to giving Places back the attractiveness and success they deserve.
