Town Apps FAQ
The cost to set up your town is €4,000. This includes all training and branding if required. We will sit with you to discuss the strategy for your town and create an action plan around your new digital infrastructure.
There is a monthly fee of €400 per month, payments start in month four. This gives us three months to work with you in setting up local businesses that will generate transactional revenues.
Once you have your team in place we will provide you with comprehensive training including all aspects of mapping hikes and trails, self guided tours, local vouchers, push notifications, content creation and social media marketing of your app.
We review the app with our partners on an ongoing basis. Whilst adding new functionality is a costly business, we do have a technical road map and will be adding new features as we evolve the product. New features must be useful to all users and improve the overall experience. There is no additional development cost to towns for new functionality and improvements.
No. If you can write an email, you can update the app and send alerts and push notifications. Mapping is a little more advanced, but training is provided.
Once funding is secured, this tends to be the longest part of the process, and all content is gathered, we begin working with you to populate your app. This can take up to six weeks.
The technology behind the app and the I.P. is owned by Booniverse Limited t/a Xplore Local. You, as a local partner are the licencee of the App for your location.
The app can generate revenues in 3 ways:
- Local Vouchers.
- Click and Collect.
- Event Ticketing.
Our share of ongoing revenues is required to enable us to invest in new features and functionality, provide support and continue to improve the app over time.
