PlayCity is on a mission to create a more active and connected world by using technology to bring people together offline. The PlayCity App and Service Platform (analytics, publishing tools) enables a localized community marketplace:
- PlayCitizens (app users) find others nearby, with similar skill and interest levels, to meet and be active with.
- Customers are PlayCity partners – service providers (municipalities, recreation facilities, sport organizations and local merchants) who need innovative ways to market their sport, programs and services to reach a broader audience, without the high cost of custom applications while getting data needed for program/service management and reporting.
