The solution for a new era of guided tours

With the stricter hygiene regulations around Corona, new smartphone-based tour guide systems are booming.

Watch founder and CEO, Ulrich Berger, explain how it works.

Tour Guide System– SmartBox Live streaming

bringing advanced audio tour technology for groups
to your customers’ smartphones.
