MARSEILLE INFOSPLAGES, THE ADAPTATION OF IBEACH FOR MARSEILLE
17 June 2015
The iBeach app for smartphones, developed by Aqualogy, has been chosen by SUEZ environnement as the app for the beaches of Marseille, with the name “Marseille InfosPlages”.
Using the structure of iBeach, this new app offers information on the condition of the beaches, their description, photos and the marine and weather forecast for this French city.
With this strategy, Aqualogy enables any municipality to have its own beach app at a very competitive cost.
The information offered by iBeach is obtained from the French version of the product Cowama, a system supporting the management of bathing areas which, by posting information on the Internet and on electronic screens, provides the municipalities with a strong environmental brand image and helps to comply with European directive 2006/7/EC and RD 1341/2007 on bathing water quality. It moreover allows them to foresee and control problems with bathing water quality which can lead to the loss of blue flags.
Marseille InfosPlages is available for Android and iPhone devices.
