What’s Respoguide all about?

Search and navigate through ‘green’ businesses in the hospitality, food service and entertainment sector. Rate your experience and get rewarded with each visit. Respoguide gathers all these eco-friendly businesses in one platform, giving them a more sustainable and responsible profile, aiming for the reduction of the ecological footprint.

Hmm… Could you tell us a little bit more about it? 

A great number of tourists, while traveling to a destination, tend to look for a unique and complete experience. As a general rule, they choose to use tour guide platforms, yet none can gather all those ‘green’ businesses in a single platform. Respoguide aims to gather all those businesses that belong to the hospitality, food service and entertainment sector, through specific sustainability factors. The user, on the other hand, can search, navigate, rate and get rewarded upon visiting them.

What problem/issue are you trying to solve?

What is really missing in the current tourism market? The turn to ‘green’ tourism and sustainable growth, which meets the need for the reduction of our ecological footprint. To a large extend, businesses in the tourism sector make an effort to adopt eco-friendly policies and practices but only a few of them fully adopt them. These are the ‘green’ businesses of the hospitality, food service and entertainment sector that do not deviate from their sustainability policies. Searching through common-used tour platforms can be a time-consuming and exhausting activity. However, currently there is not guidance app that aims for the promotion of those ‘green’ businesses in a quick and friendly way.

What’s the solution provided by Respoguide?

The user, while interacting with the Respoguide app, can search for ‘green’ businesses in the hospitality, food service and entertainment sector, find relevant information, contact a list of businesses and seek those being in low proximity. Moreover, the app offers the chance to rate his/her experience and choose through a great variety, based on the Respoguide rating. In the favorites section, the app offers the chance to reach your beloved spot in a matter of seconds. Through our innovative and handy search bar, there is an option of narrowing down your search results based on your needs and preferences. The user is also informed about current events, having as a main topic the ‘green’ businesses, sustainability, and the environment. The more he/she visits the contributing ‘green’ businesses, the more are the rewarding points he/she gains to redeem in special offers in the app. Last but not least, ‘green’ businesses will be able to promote themselves through the app, increase their market value and differentiate from their competitors, provided that they meet all the necessary sustainable criteria.
