App helps find Ti­iNGs

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Opinion -

KENS­ING­TON res­i­dent and en­tre­pre­neur, Kyran Floris­son has turned the in­ter­net on its head by help­ing to de­velop the first “found” en­gine to con­nect peo­ple to busi­nesses on­line through tra­di­tional dis­play ad­ver­tis­ing.

The 33-year-old air­line pi­lot teamed up with his friends Luke and Ja­son Bres­land, David Hahn and Brad Man­ning to cre­ate Ti­iNG – an app-based tech­nol­ogy that pro­vides busi­nesses with short al­phanu­meric codes for their dis­play ad­ver­tis­ing.

Con­sumers can put the codes into their smart phone and be taken di­rectly to the de­sired web­page.

The Ti­iNG con­cept first came to life when busi­ness con­sul­tant Ja­son spot­ted a property for sale sign while driv­ing along West Coast High­way.

“He was in­ter­ested in the property but by the time he got home he couldn’t re­mem­ber who the es­tate agent was, let alone their con­tact de­tails,” Mr Floris­son said.

“That’s when he thought it would be much eas­ier if I could punch a few dig­its in my phone and go straight to the spe­cific page, rather than nav­i­gate the in­ter­net.”

Af­ter two years work, the app is avail­able for free on iTunes and Google Play.
