Press Release 22 December 2014
Pulse Energy is proud to announce that the internationally acclaimed Waterkeeper Swim Guide smart phone app, is finally coming to New Zealand, joining Canada, Mexico and several American regions such as the Pacific Northwest, California, New England, and the South Eastern states. New Zealanders can now have access to a real time tool to find the finest beaches, the best swimming spots and the cleanest water.
Pulse recognized that, given the success of the technology in North America, its customers might want to regularly tap into the data collected daily across New Zealand.
“After seeing the technology working, we decided that, in addition to our customers, all New Zealanders might want access to this amazing tool,” says Pulse Energy CEO, Gary Holden. “It will be free to anyone starting today. New Zealanders are generally outdoors people who love to swim, drink and fish. We are pleased to present a new way to make those experiences even better.”
Swim Guide is a free smart phone app available from App Store, Google Play, or www.theswimguide.org. For thousands of beach goers, swimmers, and surfers across the country, finding and enjoying that perfect stretch of sand and water will become a whole lot easier with Swim Guide. The app also provides directions to identified locations and connects with social networks so users can share photos of water activities.
