Mumbai : Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has launched the official app for the 2019 Virgin Money London Marathon, with several key new features. TCS, the Official Technology Partner for the Virgin Money London Marathon, has developed the official mobile app for the fourth year in a row.
The most popular feature of the app is the in-built tracking system that now allows spectators to track an unlimited number of runners, so they can follow all their friends, family and favourite celebrities at the same time. The interactive course map shows runner progress, with live updates every five kilometres so fans can get to the best viewing points throughout the race and cheer their runners. Additionally, the spectator guide includes multiple points of interest, from knowing the locations of toilets, First Aid points and water stations, to finding the best pubs along the route, key landmarks and meeting points or transport information.
The app – downloaded by a record breakine 360,000 users last year – is the definitive one-stop shop of information on the event, including the course map, start times, results, expo info, and transportation.
TCS is an IT services, consulting and business solutions provider that has been partnering with the world’s largest businesses in their transformation journeys for the last fifty years.
