Last minute deal App

 

Situation:

Our client is a Delhi based emerging pioneer in new technology startups for last minute hotel deals. They have featured as a mobile only start-up which is focused and committed to bring exclusive last minute hotel deals to guests, which is up to 60% lesser compared to online platforms. They offered seamless experience, chosen hotels and acknowledgeable experience which in return resulted in warm welcoming to theapplication across target customer segment.

Project Overview:

The project involved the development of a software application that covers the entire gamut of activities right from portraying deals to the booking phase. We helped them to develop a content management system (CMS) for hotels with a mobility platform for enhancing deal booking. We delivered a successful user-friendly mobile application for the guests improving the customer booking. The application is created in such a way that even if the person is not a resident of the locality, he does not face any difficulty in imprinting the location and facilities of the booking

Solution:

Our team has developed a mobile application that works seamlessly on iPhone and Android devices. The application gives customers access to various deals that makes booking simple and hassle free. The application processes the customer’s location and displays the nearby deals. Once the booking is placed the client can check the status and background information of the person placing the booking which further helps in any required communication between the hotel staff and the guest.

The client has provided with a user-friendly backend login so as to manage the deals to be posted, update the content and images and view the queries at the support desk.
