Crowdhop, a mobile application, allows people to see in real-time where the crowds are amongst the social hotspots, e.g. clubs and bars.
Crowdhop focuses on people counting technology that relays information to a database providing the end user with real-time updates in social hotspots. Subsequently the end user will be offered add-on features such as entrance fees, events, and specials provided by the clients e.g. clubs and bars. The clients are also able to upload details like who they are and what they are about.
Crowdhop charges the client a monthly fee to have the software installed in their venue. The monthly fee will range between R500 – R1,000 depending on our financial plan. Income will also come from mobile advertising through our clients who would want to advertise to a real-time audience. Thus, end users will get the app for free.
Scenetap is the only other competitor doing this, however, we're looking to implement a business model that is already working into Africa.
