App Success Stories
Xperience Alberta apps, powered by 468 Insider, create incentives for commerce at the local level by rewarding people for visiting places.
The more places visited using these apps, the more points earned. Users redeem their points at local businesses, which drives sales if those rewards are tied to purchases.
Clients who deploy the 468 platform customize the look and feel, locations and content in their own branded apps.

"This is a great opportunity for both locals and tourists to find out about the amazing businesses and attractions we have in Cochrane, particularly in the dining and retail industries."

“The Taste Comox Valley app builds on our popular Grower’s Guide by rewarding visits and purchases at farms and wineries while providing valuable data to those business owners.”
- John Watson, Executive Director for Comox Valley Economic Development
“If we want people to think and shop local first, we need tools that make it easy and rewarding to do so – for residents and tourists alike. The 468 Insider platform allows us to create incentives to explore what’s unique about Victoria in a way that’s fun and highlights our local businesses.”
– Paul Hadfield, President, Think Local First
BC Tourism Industry Innovation Award
In March 2020, the BC Ale Trail app was named a finalist for the BC Tourism Industry Innovation Award.
The honor was in recognition of the dramatic adoption and significant economic impact of the app.
In its first year, the app had nearly 7,000 monthly ‘check-ins’, driving more than half a million dollars in annual revenue – a conservative estimate – into the BC craft brewing industry. As of August 2021, the app has nearly 14,000 registered users.

“The beauty of having an off-the-shelf but customizable technology-based application is that we were really able to tweak it for our purposes and layer in some of that safety messaging as well, that was really important.”
