By using the native GPS functions on your phone as a compass the Center City Application allows people in Uptown Charlotte to see live events and walk right to them. The concept is simple and the technology has finally evolved to make it possible. The new Charlotte Center City Partners website http://Charlottecentercity.com already has a database of Charlotte, events, nightlife and things to do available to online users. The challenge for CGR Creative’s technology and marketing team was to merge this with real time needs and put it all in the hands of those uptown in an easy to use package.
The result was a GPS arrow that shows you what is happening right now in Charlotte in the direction you are currently facing. The application also uses the one of a kind parking data available on the CCCP website to simplify the necessary evil of parking uptown. The Center City website is the only website with live parking information and availability. This information flows through their new application for Charlotte visitors to use in real time and never have to search out a place to park for an event about to begin.
The event database within the CCCP application can bring you museums, concerts, bars, special events, and festivals on a minutes’ notice.
Are you just leaving an Uptown Charlotte nightclub at 1AM on Saturday night? Then this application dreamed up with extending your night in mind.
