Nowadays, sharing experiences with the rest of the world is a way of living. Sharing media is a key part of the social fabric of modern society. However, not all these experiences need to be experienced through the lens of your camera or your smartphone. In other words, enjoy the experience when it happens and do not feel the pressure to capture that special moment for the sole purpose of sharing it with the world. In an ideal world, why not experience it in real life and share it later? Consumers and tourists deserve the best of both worlds.
We have observed opportunities in several parts of the world regarding sharing experiences. Within the tourism industry, for instance, there are many passionate entrepreneurs who provide unique experiences, but they struggle to finance or perform the next step in this modern digital easily sharing these experiences.
Furthermore, we realize that these ‘fantastic experience deliverers’ are business owners who need to make a profit. Because tourists come from all around the world, these businesses have to engage with their customers on a global scale. With this in mind, sharing experiences by using an intelligent and highly efficient product engineered by DuggMedia, serves both the consumers and these business cases.
The drive behind our company is to support businesses delivering experiences that they are proud of and help them generate a sustainable added value in sharing these experiences. With our IT, engineers and masters of economics education, we have created a low cost and high value solution to help the industry share their fantastic experiences.
We are DuggMedia; Sharing your Adventures!
Sea Safari Andenes provides whale- and birdwatching safaris from Andenes in northern Norway. Located above the Arctic Circle, it is a mystical place year round. Sea Safari Andenes organises boat trips to watch both whales and birds located in the area. Furthermore, they take photos for scientific reasons (to identify whales) and for their guests and tourists. Together with Sea Safari Andenes and our PhotoDugg, we created a workflow in which photos taken on a trip can be presented using DuggShow and sold on USB drives or online using DuggOnline in a matter of seconds. Furthermore, due to the intelligent build of the PhotoDugg, the manual labour of correcting the photos has been fully automated.
Improve photo distribution workflow, enhance customer engagement and up-sell through photo sales.

"We offer whale and bird tours in northern Norway and provide our guests the experience of a lifetime. We realise that a record of this experience is a priority for our guests. We also realise that our guests do not want to experience whales and birds through their lenses. The PhotoDugg provides us the opportunity to distribute photos taken on a trip within 5 minutes after we dock the boat. Not only does this save a lot of time, but we can finally tell our customers to leave their cameras at home. During presentations of our photos using DuggShow, our guests always ask if the photos are for sale.
With the PhotoDugg, this has finally become a possibility, and I am very happy and proud to provide this possibility to my guests."
