O-DGuide is an application for quickly creating an audio guide using your visitors’ smartphones [1].

The use of speech synthesis to vocalize textual content greatly facilitates updating sequences, which allows an iterative design (lean start up) while being particularly economical.

O-DGuide produces a QR-Code label for each sequence. Its integrated scanner allows navigation in one click!

Go to a demonstration. Preferably use a smartphone and navigate to: https://odg.dnc.global/c8999.
Note: The demonstration is in French, but O-DGuide adapts to all languages. An English demonstration will be presented soon.

The assets that will make you love O-DGuide

The advantages of O-DGuide compared to classic audio guide solutions

  • no investment, we use the visitors’ smartphones,
  • ultra-fast development, immediate modification with an identical voice, insertion or deletion of a sequence, without having to redo everything,
  • you will always have enough audio guides, whatever the number of visitors,
  • no technical capacity limit [3]: you want 100, 1,000, 10,000 sequences?
  • consultation statistics sequence by sequence, for each day, month or year,
  • an advanced human-machine interface, to which Internet users are accustomed,
  • an integrated scanner very easy to use with just one click to navigate using QR-Codes,
  • adaptation to people: more or less rapid utterance.

And the most COVID: no need to clean the equipment!

Navigate from one sequence to another in one click

O-DGuide is a "full-web" application distributed in SaaS

  • Your visitors don’t have to download an app, they use their web browser to access always up-to-date code and data.
  • Your O-DGuide visits will last as long as your visitors have mobile phones with a browser, in other words always.
  • You have no technical load, DnC takes care of everything: hosting, code maintenance, data backup [[For large organizations, we can install an O-DGuide server on their own infrastructure.] ].
  • You access a user-friendly management interface allowing you to create or modify a sequence at any time, which is immediately put online. Creating a sequence only takes a few minutes. A small mistake is corrected in the blink of an eye.

Because updating your audio guide is easy and immediate, because you don’t have any equipment to acquire and maintain, O-DGuide is a lasting investment that you can easily develop step by step and keep up to date inexpensively.
