To prove the model we have launched a new service, Directorist. As the name suggests, it provides directory solutions. Our first target industry is the events industry, actually the Bridal Show industry to be exact. Directorist has developed a number of features that utilize the wikiDOMO API, including website directories and the Bridal Show App for the iOS mobile platform (iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad).
The Bridal Show App is the first instance of a mobile application that utilises live open data from wikiDOMO in a targeted solution. The app is a directory of bridal shows and wedding shows across North America. Each show listing contains date, venue and producer information, making it a great resource for couples getting married. All sourced from wikiDOMO. Participating shows are able to list all their vendors and their contact information. Again, all sourced from wikiDOMO. Making it easy to manage and maintain for the producer and wedding professionals. What makes The Bridal Show App extra special, are the features targeted at the bride and groom’s needs, features such as the Wedding Countdown, the To-Do list, linked to vendors and the Pinterest like Inspiration Board.
A number of clients have participated in our Beta program this past spring and fall. Most recently we had the Niagara Autumn Wedding Show and Hamilton-Halton Fall Wedding Show, both in southern Ontario. We also had our first Maritime show with the Halifax Nova Scotia’s Bridal Show Plus. All provided great learning about our clients needs as well those of their exhibitors and attendees.
Checkout Directorist and the App and let us know if you would be interested in being the next closed Beta testers of the wikiDOMO API.
