Travel Meta-Search Engine
Developer: GP Solutions | all projects
Thanks to our experience in development of cutting-edge solutions for the travel businesses and the team of highly-skilled professionals, the Russian travel service Jizo decided to partner with our company for their meta-search web-service project.
The first challenge of the project was its deadline Ė the project had to be launched within around 2 months after the contract was signed. The project scope included back-office system development and the original user-friendly interface creation to give Jizo an additional competitive edge. Jizoís user interface is very specific due to its special way of displaying search results by visually explaining to the visitor how the ticket price is dependable on the departure/arrival time, number of stops or connection time, turning search process into an easy and funny experience.
Another challenge was to allow Jizo clients to compare airline tickets prices by aggregating results from a number of Russian major ticket wholesalers and show a side-by-side comparison of the best deals, redirecting the visitor to the vendorís web-site to book the best found offer.
This project is ongoing now and gravitating to the mobile apps development. According to the customer requirements, Jizo is to have its mobile version to become available via any mobile device (smartphone, tablet, etc.). Therefore the UI is being adapted to allow the travelers access to the service from any place in the world with Internet connection. Another development vector is continuous integration of new travel suppliers into customerís HUB.
Resources expended: 13 150 man-hours
