Visitor Guide Apps

Create and manage visitor guide apps using Situate.

Situate can be used to create visitor guide apps for use in museums, galleries, stately homes, universities – and any other venue where visitor orientation would be beneficial.  Situate apps will work inside or outside regardless of whether or not there is an internet connection available. You can add whatever content you like, including maps, floor plans, audio and video.


Situate Features

Works Offline

Content is downloaded to the user’s device and thereafter doesn’t require an internet connection to work. 

Trigger Content

Content is triggered when a user comes within range of a location trigger – which can be iBeacons or GPS coordinates.


Create versions of your app for different audiences: languages, visitors with accessibility needs, different themes.

Indefinite App Lifetime

You keep the content up to date and we make sure the technology stays compatible with new operating system versions and devices.


Visitor Flow Data

The app captures location data that provides a rich picture of how visitors are using the trail.


Broadcast Messages

Send announcements to users who have installed your app – even targeting visitors currently in your venue.
