Following a series of meetings since July 2018 with Justin Brown of Veterans SA, Goingtoplaces.com is developing a connected series of town based apps based
on the Robe SA app. This is an expansion of the regional SA and VIC app ecosystem the startup has published since 2016. At present in development are two for Victorian and one for a NSW location, to support returned service personnel reintegration services. These will highlight the businesses whose support is vital to the program. The apps also identify and promote the towns and regions activities, services, businesses and attributes for all to access, either visitors or residents. The apps availability will continue to be promoted to domestic and international travelers as well as defence service members and families. Part of this collaboration will include contributing part of the annual subscriptions to the Robe to Recovery program. Discussions have also began on employing returned service personnel to assist with transition into the community they have represented in their service.
