The many under-the-hood benefits of using CultureSpots
CultureSpots has many benefits. One of the most basic, yet notable ones, is that you don’t have to buy, build, install or maintain any new software, apps, mobile devices or servers. CultureSpots is so easy to use that nearly anyone can use it, regardless of their technical expertise. We understand that most museums and galleries don’t have huge budgets nor vast departments of specialized teams, but rather, usually have small teams where everyone wears many hats. In order for you to get up and running quickly, while continually offering your visitors new and engaging experiences, we’ve made CultureSpots as easy to use as possible.
And by easy, we mean both for you, and your visitors. As mentioned above, CultureSpots is not an app that you or your visitors must download in order to access your content. Many people wouldn’t have the space on their device to download yet another app and media files, or wouldn’t want to anyway – we call that “app bloat” and “app fatigue”.
Kids are a whole other story – they often need permission from their parents to download apps, and by the time they get their attention and permission, the moment has already passed, and they miss out on all your great content. Literally, all your visitor has to do is point their phone’s camera at a QR code and start listening to your tours. Or, they can just enter a short, branded URL into their browsers’ address bar – either way, easy peasy.
The CultureSpots platform is also not a WordPress website, which many museums use to host their websites and media content. The amazing advantage of this is that you don’t have to host, configure or update anything server-related. And of course, there’s no code for you to write. Check out this link and see how quick and easy it is to set up your CultureSpots landing page and audio tours.
Another huge plus to being a mobile web-based app is that you don’t have to purchase, upgrade or fix any hardware. Hardware is so often very expensive to purchase and maintain – we’ll have none of that please!
Let’s say you already have a native mobile app that your visitors are using, but you’re missing an audio tour component. You and your developers will be very pleased to know that adding your CultureSpots mobile audio tours to it will be a snap and likely no more than a few lines of code, which we’d be happy to help them with! Bottom line, CultureSpots doesn’t replace or muddy any of your existing digital assets, but augments and strengthens them instead.
