App helps find TiiNGs
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.
