OnCell Acquires Tour Buddy Apps

We are very excited to share with you that Oncell Systems has acquired Tour Buddy Apps that we can continue to provide the best possible mobile solutions for you and your visitors.  The Tour Buddy team will remain in place and will continue to be your main point of contact going forward.

Many of you have been with us for years and have watched our app builder platform evolve as we have continued to add new features and products to improve your guests’ experience. Over the last decade, we have continually strived to offer the easiest to use, most affordable app builder and publishing platform in the GPS tours and culture and heritage sector.

So how did we come to the decision to merge? Historically, OnCell has represented one of our biggest competitors and offers a suite of similar products to Tour Buddy.  We saw plenty of benefits for our companies to combine, and we have very similar views on where we want to take our platforms. By merging it allows us to provide an enhanced product suite that will allow us to pick the best solution for you – backed with a whole lot of expertise.  OnCell also owns My ToursSTQRY and Curtis.

We will provide you with details of the new software solution alternative in the near future.  I know mergers can leave customers feeling a bit worried about what the future holds, so I want to reassure you that there is a whole bunch of things that will not change (apart from all the new features we will be adding!).

The services we have provided you in the past will continue to be offered by the new organization and we are continuing to develop the Tour Buddy platforms.   Your fees and costs associated with our organisation will not change. All existing quotes, proposals and subscriptions will stay the same.  Our staff and tech team will continue in their current roles. So if you have any questions, please reach out to us.

All billing contacts, bank accounts, contracts and agreements remain unchanged!

The new company offers a range of locations worldwide so apart from our existing office we can now be found at Pittsford, NY; Auckland, New Zealand; DeNang, Vietnam. So you’ll be pleased to know that we will be even easier to contact than before!

We are thrilled to continue doing business with you, and appreciate your continued partnership. If you have any questions at all then please do not hesitate to reach out to Sarah or Lydia.  sarah@tourbuddy.netlydia@tourbuddy.net

Best,
The Tour Buddy Team
