A new locally built travel application will now allow tourists to have Fiji in the palm of their hand.

What’s On Pacifica (WOP) director of operations Fareena Barnes said: “WOP FIJI Travel App is a marketing mobile online platform that enriches the tourist’s exposure to a larger more diverse set of registered business in and around FIJI.

“From tour guides such as urban Nadi Adventures, a young entrepreneur providing a cultural adventure across the nation to large international organisations such as Sofitel Resorts that supports many localised charities.

“We are placing in the hands of every tourist coming to Fiji an up to date in depth catalogue of companies at a price that allows them to market themselves directly to the tourist.”

The app was founded by Dave and Fareena Barnes through their Nadi-based company, WOP, that was founded three years ago.

According to Ms Barnes, the app was placed on Google Play and Apple Store two months ago to test its full functionality.

Rosie Group is also the other company that launched a digital travel app — FeeJee Traveller — last year.

She said this was the first time they were publishing the application for people to download.

“Time and energy has been the main investment so far into the app. Financially, we project-managed this so we could bring the app to the market.

“No wages were paid. It has been a project of passion between my husband and I,” Ms Barnes said.

“WOP FIJI is available 365 days a year 24 hours a day this is truly Fiji in the palm of your hand.”
