User trial

For a better introduction to ili, we offered user trials to guests at our event- many who work in the tourism industry and media. This was the first public look, hand-held experience and trial use in Japan! Language barriers have been a longstanding issue between international tourists and the tourism industry but these guests saw ili as a game changer in their customer service for international guests.
