sawah© applications

We at INTEWO believe that technology can contribute to better education and smarter tourism. Therefore we develop sawah© applications for environmental awareness programs and tourist information systems.

For a better tourism & education

sawah© offers reliable and up-to-date tourist information wherever and whenever you need it. You can access this information via iOS and Android applications on smartphones and tablet computer, including GPS and offline support. sawah© employs effective design-marketing, as well as providing environmentally friendly guidance for visitors. The system is fully up-to-date and utilizes the most advanced practice available in the field of sustainable tourism development. sawah© is suitable for all tourist destinations; it is especially useful for national parks, national monuments, biosphere reserves, nature parks and world heritage sites. sawah© is also appropriate and highly useful as a visitor-resource in museums, zoos, stage-managed destinations and on recreational and adventure trails.
