With a mission to provide safe, convenient and fun-filled travel experiences to the visitors and to increase tourist influx into Jammu & Kashmir, the Tourism Department has roped in IT firm CoRover to virtually connect with tourists while they visit any tourist destination and need any assistance during their forward journey in the state.
While launching the CoRover Connect, which is a Software as a Service (SaaS) based platform, Divisional Commissioner Jammu Sanjeev Verma said that the aim behind the launch of the application is to connect tourists in a particular location with each other, with administrative staff and with the verified/curated service providers to provide a safe and convenient travel & stay experience.
Founder of CoRover Ankush Sabharwal said that the platform will display all the information about the tourist destinations and the nearby amenities available at a particular tourist spot. “Keeping safety of tourists visiting J&K, we have introduced a ‘Panic Button’ for visitors to seek help from other visitors in the location, in case of any emergency,” Sabharwal said.
CoRover is a Bangalore based startup. It has collaborated with J&K Government to boost tourism. The company is also working with Karnataka Tourism, Israel and other tourism boards.
