Fostering Trust

Only a conscious commitment to empower customers can halt the current downward spiral of trust in digital engagement.

Backed by a commitment to build a product or service development culture that respects privacy built on security.

Advocating Privacy

Digital privacy is needed for a free digital society

Privacy will not become ubiquitous until it becomes a commercial asset

The first freedom should be from location tracking. No other data gives such deep insight to who you are



Innovating Co-location

Unlocking location value for citizens & places, whilst sustaining location privacy, is achieved through the insight that it’s the co-location of people that is important, not their location

The Krowd App...


Smart Places - Smart Cities

The strategic challenge is to engage staff and public in making places smarter.

Fostering digital engagement in places sustains the data value locally and maximizes RoI for the place and the city.

Learn how we make places smarter.
