Commuting is usually tiring and if one doesn’t have any source of entertainment the journey turns out to be less exciting. En Route Media has incorporated in taxi TV-Flo which allows users passengers to sit back and relax while watching documentaries or movie trailers. It has been seen that there are a number of individuals who after watching a commercial or a documentary feel the need to give generously in order to benefit others.

Be it any individual, everyone will enjoy using this interactive TV medium. So much so has been the impact of this media that transformed the heart o a man who donated an entire building in Jaipur for St. Jude’s noble cause.

What’s been keeping us busy?
1. Giving back: St. Judes, an organisation that sets up centers for underprivileged cancer patients was showcasing themselves on our in-taxi interactive TV – Flo. A few days earlier we heard about a fascinating incident that has truly humbled us.

A gentleman was stuck in Mumbai’s usual traffic, while Flo was there to give him company. Turns out he caught the St. Judes TVC, was touched by it and that experience catapulted him into donating an entire building in Jaipur to St.Jude’s noble cause.

2. Bringing online campaigns offline: Volkswagen chose to extend their YouTube Volkswagen Jetta TSI campaign to our medium. Together we specially adapted the campaign to our offline environment and after a month we can confidently say that it was a real success!

3. Cheering on Team India: The London Olympics 2012 is keeping everybody busy in the world, and we are no different! 3 medals down and there’s more to come, go Team India!
