Appolo, the digital card by La Sala Apolo

We continue discovering the projects that have received the grant in information and communications technology (ICT) Institute of Culture of Barcelona

Omitsis is an engineering company dedicated to software development, specifically in software development for websites, apps or wearables (any device that you can wear such as a mobile phone, glasses or a watch). They have worked for clients as diverse as TimeOut Barcelona, Misako, Grandvalira or the City Council.

About 6 months ago La Sala Apolo contacted to Omitsis to order an app. "When we asked why they wanted an app we discover that what they really wanted was to have direct communication with their public" says Albert from Omitsis.

La Sala Apolo has created thousands of membership cards and they are looking for a way to improve the user experience. Together with Omitsis they decided that the best way to achieve this object was to digitize the Apollo 113 card and turn it into an app.

The app, available for Android and iOS devices, was launched on March 3. "La Sala Apolo invited all partners to download the app and to celebrate the launch of the application. We made real tests with users organizing a party at the Apollo which could only be accessed via the mobile application. The test had over a thousand attendees and was successful" explains Albert.

The application has received the TIC grant by Institute of Culture of Barcelona, with which they have been able to finance a small part of the project. "The Appolo application is only part of the project we want to make. We want to create a system that links different cultural spaces from the city and offers the customized experiences and rewards. Imagine that from a single application you can record your cultural activity and have an activities agenda and personalized discount or rewards to continue enjoying the cultural offer from the city".

Omitsis presents the Apollo application and the project they are developing at PrimaveraPro, the festival for professionals in new technologies within the Primavera Sound.
