We want to improve the way in which people visit places. We think that the current offer of audio guides is insufficient and very improvable.
No more to those boring audio guides always made by the same people. The Bauapp guides do not represent any institution and so you as authors have complete freedom to express your passion for art and history in the best way you know. In this way, we will obtain audio guides that are fresher, more daring and more human.
For this reason, we believe that it does not make sense to have just one audio-guide for everyone. Bau’s objective is to offer different audio-guides for each museum to that each visitor finds one that they want. Some examples of guides that we are receiving are:
Masterpieces at the Guggenheim Bilbao
History of fashion through paintings at the Thyssen Bornemisza
MAMBO museum for kids
Picasso at the MOMA
Choose your audience and make a visit for them! Remember that the visitor can choose which one to buy so make sure that yours is the best 😉
Until now, only large museums could afford having an audio-guide. The traditional system has very high management costs since they need to rent the devices, have people who sell and manage them, space in the museum, etc. These are costs that very few institutions can afford.
We at Bau are giving the solution to this problem. From now on, any museum, centre, public building, etc. can offer an audio-guide to their visitors with no cost to them. With there being someone who can record their knowledge about the place or the works displayed, and then they can have a guide on Bauapp. We focus all our effort on having content of maximum quality, and not on the operations like the traditional system.
On the other hand, we believe that the cost of audio-guides is in many cases, excessive. This is due to two things. First, the high operational cost involved in maintaining these audio-guides and secondly, but possibly more relevant, is that there is no available alternative since if you want an audio guide, it has to be the official one.
With Bauapp, these two problems are over.
