Multi-Pass may soon be coming to your town

on November 25, 2013 by Ana Comments

Or, more precisely, in 2015. Multi-pass is the latest in the trend towards end user consolidation of services. From travel (Kayak) to banking (Coin), innovation revolves around aggregating multiple information streams into a sleek, clean, easy-to-use interface on the user end. In its best form, we are talking about reduction of complication, while keeping complexity of the system intact.

The idea behind Multi-pass is to fold in one single ticket your train, metro, bus, car parking and possibly air passes (think the Fifth Element situation). Everything that has to do with moving a person from point A to point B now is in a single ticket. The secret is in e-ink screen, that displays barcodes for relevant transportation operators to scan and let you go through.

Let’s just enjoy this idea for a moment before starting to think about all the challenges for privacy it brings.

Place Pins, for those who are into that

on November 24, 2013 by Ana Comments

In other travel industry news, Pinterest decided that it’s time for geo-locating its pinboards. It works like this: with newly launched “place pins,” users can create boards around a specific location and add pins to them. Pins can include a map, photos, info, and whatever else a user decides it’s relevant. This is quite a nice addition to users’ online planning process, where quest for inspiration and location-related information beats all other steps in the funnel.

More interesting to me, however, are the partnership opportunities that place pins offer. As of now, Pinterest banded up with Foursquare to use its API (Foursuare allows users lists and also shows them on the map, but information is limited to photos and reviews) and Mapbox, which provided the maps.

In the works are partnerships with Disney, BBC Travel, Conde Nast Traveler and the load of other travel-related publications and hotels. Four Seasons, for example, has pulled its Foursquare reviews and photos and turned them into place pins for its “Gastronomic Travel” board. You can check it out here. Conde Nast traveler, on the other hand, pulls info directly from its magazine for its “Top 100 Hotels in the World” list.

Has John Lewis tweeted too early?

on November 12, 2013 by Jeremy Comments

The UK retailer launches its 2013 Christmas campaign to a mixture of hibernating bar-humbuggers and die-hard fans.

Earlier this week John Lewis launched its Christmas campaign The Bear & The Hare with a massive heart wrenching film. It features the story of two animals friends. Upon discovering his friend has been in hibernation during Christmases past, the hare sets out to show the bear how special a present filled Christmas can be.

Reportedly costing £7m for the TV spot alone, the production is beautifully crafted and works well across different mediums. The connection moment between campaign and

retailer is completed by a range of Bear & Hare products (available now at all John Lewis stores). Read more…
