In the case of the Way of St. James, the digital credential coexists and maintains the same operating structure as the paper one. Something very remarkable at the level of architecture and design of the project, especially for small associations and religious organisations that are sustained and develop their activity thanks to the income obtained from the sale of credentials.
It also emphasises in the digital credential of the Camino de Santiago, the enrichment of its functionalities brought about by the agreements established with the Federation and the Xacobeo, which gives it more scope; the ONCE Foundation, which makes it more accessible; and the Guardia Civil or AlertCOPS, which provides more security to the pilgrim on the route.
"The digital credential of the Camino de Santiago is the ideal tool for us, because it allows us to move forward and, at the same time, be closer to our goals, the road, the pilgrims and all the information related to the pilgrimage". Jorge Martínez-Cava, president of the Spanish Federation of Associations of Friends of the Camino de Santiago.
The system designed by Camino Aplicación adapts quickly and economically to the purposes of each manager of the space or religious path and makes available to pilgrims through their mobile devices, in an easy and immediate way, a "friendly tool" that accompanies them, helps and encourages them to enrich their experience along the route.
"We were the first and so far the only ones to successfully create and develop a digital religious credential. It is a useful tool with a lot of potential. We hope that our collaboration with ALIANZA KAIRO will allow us to make the credential known worldwide". Rafael Fernández, CEO of Camino Aplicación.
From the above, we can conclude that those responsible for religious sites around the world have a new ally in the project that represents the digital religious credential, to get closer to their community and disseminate their objectives through an innovative, accessible and useful tool.
