What Our Clients Say
We are excited to be working with Geoff Elwood and the team at Specialist Apps on our Visitor Engagement App, part of the 2019 Queensland Bushfires Community Recovery Package Cat C under the Disaster Recovery funding arrangements. We are cooking up all sorts of treasure hunts and trails which has been a lot of fun.
Terese Finegan - Tourism Recovery Officer at Southern Downs Regional Council
Destination marketing is rapidly evolving and it is essential for us to keep pace with modern consumer demand and distribution channels.
The Specialist Apps team are providing us with an exciting opportunity to showcase our region and connect potential and in-market visitors with our tourism operators via an interactive, compelling and engaging platform.
Return on investment is a critical measure for our tourism projects and the potential multiplier effect for bringing more visitors and keeping them in our region longer is an exciting economic opportunity.
Ryan Deebank - Queanbeyan-Palerang Regional Council
I feel the system (EdCheckIn - Digital Survey and Screening Solution) saves times especially for Staff. I like the way that it recognises me, greets me and wishes me a good day. I find myself unconsciously responding. It reduces the amount of paper wastage and saves on storage as we are required to keep the paper versions for a period of time.
The team have been helpful with any requests for changes as the requirements have changed, including the addition of the Check in Qld code. No problem has been too big for the team and any issues that have arisen have been addressed and rectified promptly . Thank you.

Available as a multi-lingual application, the Skyrail interpretive app utilises GPS location and augmented reality technology to deliver an interactive, interpretive experience which enhances our overall visitor experience.
We continue to work with Specialist Apps in developing customised and exciting new enhancements to our app. Specialist Apps provide a collaborative approach to product development and support and we look forward to working with them into the future."

"We have found Specialist Apps to be a world class organisation to deal with. We have worked with them on some truly innovative ways to present what is unique and special about Waimangu Volcanic Valley for our visitors and the response has been great.
Using augmented reality has proven to be extremely useful as we look to engage guests in hidden aspects of our offering and the functionality for guests has been well received. A great bunch of talented people to deal with."

“The Sovereign Hill Museums Association has worked with Geoff Elwood and Specialist Apps in developing three digital tours of our award-winning outdoor museum in Ballarat, Australia. The tours are 'New Gold Mountain' (for Chinese visitors), 'Built on Gold' (for school children and their families) and 'Hidden Secrets' (for visitors with limited mobility or hearing). With input also from Creative Hat Interpretation, we have been able to add rich layers of text, images, audio and audio-visual content. Geoff's team has been receptive to our ideas and suggestions, and has been persistent in finding solutions.”

“For the past 3 years I have been collaborating with Specialist Apps on the development of a 21st century educational ecosystem that integrates iBeacon technology to optimise teaching and learning spaces. As a result of this project Haileybury today is able to deploy iBeacon technologies in any space and transform teaching and learning into a richer and more productive experience for teachers and students. iBeacons are also used on School Tour days to beam multimodal resources on visitors' devices, as they explore our learning spaces, giving them the opportunity to see why Haileybury is one of the highest achieving Schools in Australia.”
