Case Study Ferienverein, 2016
Design and engineer a user-friendly booking process.
The Ferienverein is a leading hotel group for sports, wellness and family holidays whose goal is to offer the best holiday experiences of the market at an affordable price. When they got in touch with us, all the booking requests were still handled exclusively by telephone. Our job was clear. We had to design and develop a new content management platform which also worked for multiple domains and languages with a unique online booking solution. We must add here, that an average booking request usually consists of multiple types of transportation (land/air) as well as accommodation and renting of equipment, like bikes or inline skating.
The technical challenge
Multi language/domain content management system
There was an exception to manage the all-inclusive packages offered by the resorts in Spain and Italy, for which we had to develop an access to the booking system they already had (DaVinci).
Check availability in Real-time
Using the API we were provided with, we are able to check the availability of the resorts packages on a daily basis, publish them and make them available for public booking. Once a booking process is started, the desired package is checked again for availability in Real-time and it’s inserted directly into the DaVinci database, which the client would use later to do the billing.
