It was announced yesterday that Utah-based Listen Technologies Corporation has acquired Kingston’s AudioConexus, the developer of a unique multilingual, GPS commentary platform that helps sightseeing tour operators engage their visitors.
According to a release, both AudioConexus and Listen Technologies – a provider of assistive listening systems for 21 years – share the vision of “improving life experiences through sound by providing exceptional audio and compelling content anytime, anywhere, on any platform and in a format that is accessible to all.”
“AudioConexus shares Listen Technologies’ passion for delivering audio experiences that engage people in personal and memorable ways,” said Russ Gentner, CEO of Listen Technologies. “AudioConexus has created the world’s most unique GPS commentary platform, designed to transform every aspect of the foreign language visitor experience.”
“We are combining the AudioConexus Navilution® solution and the Listen EVERYWHERE Wi-Fi solution to create the world’s first GPS commentary system where guests can use their own mobile devices to access cinematic tour entertainment in their chosen language,” added Jonathan Stanley, CEO of AudioConexus.
According to Stanley, AudioConexus’ Navilution® solution and Listen Technologies’ EVERYWHERE Wi-Fi solution will be combined to create the world’s first GPS commentary system where guests can use their own mobile devices to access cinematic tour entertainment in their chosen language.
AudioConexus is scheduled to transition to Listen Technologies Canada over the next few months.
