The Tulsa Zoo is an 85 acre non profit zoo that has been welcoming guests to their grounds for 90 years.  Not only are education and conservation  integral to their mission, but also creating an unforgettable experience for guests every day.


The ONEOK Safari Train offers guests transportation on a fun ride from one side of the park to the other.  The train also provides a talking tour of the park and since its inception, GPS hardware was installed to give the tour over the loudspeaker.  But, over the past 8 years, the zoo wanted to update their tour’s content but were not able to easily change their content using their installed GPS hardware.

 

The Tulsa Zoo began investigating other options and found the App Builder Platform, which would allow them to create a GPS triggered audio tour but with much more flexibility at a lower cost.  The App Builder would allow them to create and launch a general tour through the Tour Buddy App within a matter of days using a smartphone.  The smartphone would connect to their train’s speaker system through an auxiliary cable – no expensive equipment necessary.  Then, for holidays and special occasions, the conductors can create alternate tours by simply choosing a different category in their guide.

 

 

The Tulsa Zoo is now able to continue giving a fun and high quality tour to their guests with even greater flexibility and ease.
