Research Strategy

To find information about any existing contracts with city governments, we started by exploring the website of Spotlio for relevant information. We also looked for information on specific cities such as Tenerife and Vilanova that are using Spotlio apps. However, we did not find any information on existing contracts with city governments. Available information only shows that cities are using the Spotlio platform for their customized City Guides.

Next, we searched for product reviews and news about Spotlio in the media and on third-party sites. We scoured through sites like Crunchbase, Hotel Tech Report, and Foursquare. However, we only found details about the uses and features of Spotlio.

We then looked for presentations and interviews granted by Spotlio executives to find out if they had revealed any contract existing contracts with city governments. While we found programs involving presentations from Spotlio executives, we did not find details or interviews revealing any existing contracts with city governments.
