This November, after careful and thorough consideration, Simpleview acquired Bluebridge Tourism Technology, the business unit of Bluebridge responsible for branded mobile applications. Simpleview and Bluebridge Tourism worked closely together to make sure the best interests of the DMO industry remained of primary importance. Simpleview will continue to provide the exceptional customer service both parties are known for to existing and forthcoming Bluebridge Tourism/VisitApps clients.
For additional details surrounding the acquisition announcement, please read our press release at the Simpleview Blog.
No Service Interruption
Current Bluebridge Tourism clients will continue to use the Mobile App Studio and mobile apps through Simpleview without any interruption in service. Rest assured there will be no immediate changes to your branded mobile applications. Simpleview will continue to support Bluebridge Tourism mobile application products and services through contracts that are already in place, allowing the Bluebridge DMOs to continue conducting business as usual.
New Product Name
The branded mobile applications you're already using will have a new name: VisitApps.
The standout customer service Simpleview is known for now supports your mobile destination apps and app suite.
Simpleview is happy to welcome BlueBridge Tourism's mobile application customers to our client family. Our friendly staff are happy to answer any questions and provide any further support you may need for your Bluebridge Tourism mobile apps, now re-branded VisitApps. Several BlueBridge Tourism clients already work in tandem with Simpleview for website development, email marketing, or search marketing, and will now be fully supported by one company. To assist with this transition, we've recorded a webinar on how to utilize your new Simpleview Client Portal login for ticketing and support.
With this acquisition, we're excited to bring another incredible product, branded mobile applications, or VisitApps, into the Simpleview suite of solutions, allowing us to provide to DMOs a fully integrated set of tools and technology as well as digital strategy under one roof. To learn more about our products and services-including industry-specific Customer Relationship Management (CRM) and Content Management Systems (CMS), website creation, revenue generation, email marketing, and more-and how they may be able to serve your destination, please browse our website or feel free to contact us directly.
Quite simply, your favorite destination marketing tools and solutions are now under one roof, from Simpleview CRM and CMS, to web design and Bluebridge Tourism mobile apps, now re-branded VisitApps.
Following this acquisition, Simpleview is expanding its product line to offer mobile apps under the brand "Visit Apps." Destinations can integrate point of interest data, events, offers, venue information, and more into branded mobile applications that visitors can access on the go, getting the destination content they need when they need it most. These apps will allow DMOs to engage travel planners and destination visitors throughout their travel experience, from the inspiration moment to the dreaming phase, through the planning process, during their visit, and long after.
