iGeolise have developed the TravelTime platform, a software that shows where you can travel within a given time period. Whether walking, cycling, driving or taking public transport, the platform instantly generates a travel time shape showing the reachable area, then ranks and sorts thousands of locations within that area by their travel time. This allows users to locate, for example, a pharmacy before it shuts, using public transport; all hotels within 15 minutes of the airport; or a new office location within the shortest commute for all employees. iGeolise is already used on property websites including Rightmove, Zoopla and Foxtons to help house hunters discover where they can live within a reasonable commute. Recruitment sites such as TotalJobs and Jobsite use TravelTime to match candidates to vacancies. Other clients include the world's largest commercial property company CBRE, and the NHS. The TravelTime platform is live across 35 countries including all of Europe and North America.
