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. We Share 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.

"Ever since we began our whale and bird safaris, we have taken photos for promotional use and species identification. Our guests have always asked if we are able to share these photos. We were happy to share them, but it takes a lot of time and requires a lot of additional work. In our business, and especially during the busy season, time is scarce, which meant that we were unable to provide these photos to our guests. This was a big disappointment. Using the PhotoDugg, the additional work we used to have is eliminated, and we can spend more time with our guests while the PhotoDugg processes all the photos automatically. It now takes about 5 minutes of work to distribute all photos taken on a trip to our guests. We are very happy with the solution, and so are our guests. This is top-notch work from the people of DuggMedia. Finally, a company that delivers a full solution and fulfils my wishes."
