Workshop 2: MyEasyRoute

Introduction to the cycle tour operator App MyEasyRoute

MyEasyRoute is more than just an app: it’s a dedicated platform that enables tour operators to create a mobile App (iOS and Android), with travel packages: itineraries, points of interest, and maps. Thanks to the back-end platform of MyEasyRoute tour operators can create and manage all the information related to travel packages, insert and describe itineraries made of one or more stages, with all the points of interest and useful information for the traveler. All contents are then automatically published on the native iOS and Android apps and on the HTML5 Web-app (optional).
Description of the app
Myeasyroute is your virtual travel guide. The app will geo-locate you at any time on the selected itinerary, and guide you along hiking trails or cycle routes. With the app you never run the risk of getting lost. Also you always know how much is missing at the end of the trip. The base maps are made by cartographers and are close to the best standards of mountain maps. The application includes best points of interest that you will find along the route.
Features
 ok Expert-curated tour guides with top recommendations
 ok Track navigation
 ok Offline maps and data
 ok Audio tracks
