We are pleased to announce another collaboration.
The Ablebook application begins a new partnership with the Metropolis Mall of Larnaca. An application that will provide all the relevant information and services, around the accessibility of the disabled in the urban centers and in the villages of the periphery of Cyprus. You can find out more information about us by clicking on the link below. (https://linktr.ee/ablebook)
More specifically, the Ablebook app offers four (4) features.
The first feature is an interactive map that allows users to select the location they want to head to, with more advanced options available. In addition, users can see the available accessibility facilities at each site via photos, as well as navigate to and contact businesses. In addition, users can report problems they face in a particular area by contacting us directly. Finally, in the application, there are over 1000 locations that show their facilities for the Disabled and all public parking spaces for the Disabled in Cyprus.
The second feature of the application is Ablecard. A membership card exclusively for people with disabilities where businesses within the application provide additional benefits to people with disabilities eg discounts.
The third feature of our application is the Kids section. This section provides information on accessible places where children with disabilities can play sports, such as parks, gyms, sports teams/academies, nature trails, and more.
The last available feature of the app is the Ablebook Portal. Through the Ablebook Portal, businesses as well as municipal bodies have the ability to manage their locations in the application, change the content, hours of operation and photos, etc. There is always a check by Ablebook in case of changes to the facilities, that the appropriate specifications are followed.
Our application with its digital services focuses on improving the accessibility of urban services, with the aim of integrating and including people with disabilities in the urban environment and society.
Metropolis Mall has already been designed with disabled access and navigation in the Mall in mind. Since parking spaces are already available near the entrances for people with disabilities, ramps, elevators, and wheelbarrows are available for more effortless movement inside the department store. In addition, there are accessible toilets for people with disabilities. Restaurants also offer vegan options to accommodate those with dietary restrictions. Finally, there are accessible ATMs to make it easier for people with disabilities to withdraw cash.
With our cooperation, we will provide the possibility to the application users who visit the Metropolis Mall to know in which parts of the Shopping Center the necessary accesses for them are located. As well as if they need some help, contacting competent people in the Shopping Center is possible. As a result, everyone can without exception do their shopping and enjoy their coffee or food without obstacles.
In conclusion, the partnership between Ablebook and Metropolis Mall is an important step towards an egalitarian and inclusive society. By providing facilities and services that meet the needs of people with disabilities, Metropolis Mall definitely sets an example for other businesses.
