The Beacons provided by another leading Sydney tech company Blue Cats provides information and ticketing functionality for the performances as well as providing discounts and coupon offers from local retail establishments.

The “Divine App” promotes the three unique performances of Dante’s Divine Comedy to be held in Redfern in late August that will be translated and performed by Composer and Technologist Diego Bosco, who is also the Founder and CTO of Proximity Mobile.
