MyLondonInfo, the London travel website will shortly be in the position to offer interactive multi-media tours to all of their clients.

Whilst this is not new technology MyLondonInfo has invested significant time and resources into making sure what they are offering their clients is streamlined, user-friendly, useful and most importantly cost-effective.

The new 360 degree Virtual Tour will allow visitors to the London travel website, the opportunity to see the establishment they are researching before actually visiting. This is seen as a vital tool that is being demanded by the ever more web-savvy traveler. MyLondonInfo plans to offer this service to all of its clients from London Museums through to the best London Restaurants.

MyLondonInfo will take care of all the necessary procedures in order to produce a professional 360 degree virtual tour. The photographer, equipment, lighting, editing, hosting and streaming will be supplied by the MyLondonInfo team and the process of actually capturing the images should only take about an hour. Once the images have been edited and formatted they are hosted with MyLondonInfo's partners Plush Media and published on the clients listing.

Uniquely, the code linking to the hosted content is also made available to the client. This means that it is ready to use on the clients own website or anyehre else they want to display it. This could help create significant cost savings for the client whilst at the same time offering an invaluable insight into the business for users before they visit.

Colin Iffland, director of MyLondonInfo said, "This is just another way in which our brand is continually investing in the best technology and partners. We realise that our users will keep demanding more interactive content. It is our aim to provide them with the best possible tools in order to make their visit to London enjoyable. We will be contacting all our clients shortly to introduce this new media; we hope they will find the technology both user-friendly and valuable".

As part of an international, award winning network MyLondonInfo has access to cutting edge technology, dedicated support as well as ongoing software development from the head office in Spain. The investment in both the personnel and equipment needed in order to offer this service demonstrates the commitment of the local business as well as the franchisor to remain at the forefront of web technology and innovation. As promised last month the team has now also started to roll-out the multi-lingual versions of the site. Spanish was first with German, French and Italian to follow shortly.
