One of My Favorite App’s of 2012 – Lumiplan’s Quickly Growing Platform

divider image for this post

App Platform Name:

“We launched our app solutions in 2009. Each app is customized for the resort and serves as the resort’s official app, providing the resort with a new communication channel. We develop apps for iOS and Android and for smartphones and tablets. Our apps allow the resort to put information directly into the hands of the skier, for example via push messages and real-time updates, while providing a fun and easy-to-use “”digital experience”” with its tracking feature.

We offer three types of features:

  • Real-time information for skiers (trail/lift status, interactive trail map with geolocation, weather/snow conditions, and webcams).
  • Tracking and social features (tracking tool, function to geolocalize friends, social networking, photo sharing, and an emergency feature).
  • Resort information features (ski resort directory, events, video player, village map, Augmented Reality, and features for the summer season).

We have more than 2 million users worldwide (for all Lumiplan apps).”

Why They’re Different:
“The app is fully compatible with Lumiplan’s real-time information software. A one-time entry in the back office can broadcast new information on the website, screens, digital signs, the lift/trail status board and the app.

  • Integration when possible with a third party partner’s solutions (data sync with an external XML feed, lift ticket purchase module). At Squaw, we will use the Ryan Solutions API to integrate a subscription form that works with their CRM system.
  • A majority of content can be changed by the resort via our back office and doesn’t require an app update.
  • Push Notifications can be categorized, geolocalized and scheduled.
  • Support, project management, app updates when needed, annual improvements and app upgrades, a 5-person team dedicated to apps and available at all times.
  • Dynamic itineraries considers real-time information such as skier level, grooming, lift wait time, weather, etc. to propose an itinerary to the user.
  • Multilingual system.”

About Gregg & SlopeFillers
I've had more first-time visitors lately, so adding a quick "about" section. I started SlopeFillers in 2010 with the simple goal of sharing great resort marketing strategies. Today I run marketing for resort ecommerce and CRM provider Inntopia, my home mountain is the lovely Nordic Valley, and my favorite marketing campaign remains the Ski Utah TV show that sold me on skiing as a kid in the 90s.
