Providing a consistent look and feel across the website
The client’s website was a combination of white-label solutions from numerous travel providers, which didn’t feel consistent. Our experts redesigned UI/UX to bring uniformity across different visual elements, enhancing user interactions with the system. As a result, non-tech-savvy clients can easily buy whatever they want, with little to no help from live support.
Integrating with timeshare resorts, payment gateways, and a review platform
AltexSoft established direct connections with two timeshare companies — the first leveraging content from over 4,200 resorts and the second maintaining a network of nearly 3,000 resorts globally. We also built integrations with payment gateways to accept credit cards and a guest feedback platform to collect and analyze customer reviews and hotel ratings.
Getting Priceline content via Travolutionary, an all-in-one hotel aggregation platform
Travolutionary links travel resellers to inventory from 80 suppliers via a single API, eliminating the need to build multiple integrations. However, you must get a separate certification from each vendor you want to partner with. So, after connecting the client’s platform to Travolutionary, our team navigated a complex approval process with the supplier of choice — Priceline. We successfully verified that the website correctly presents data from Priceline.
Automating price calculation
We also built a commission engine for hotels and condos that automates adding markups (a flat fee or a percentage of a sale price) to a base rate. It applies predefined rules to calculate a final price depending on property location, supplier, and user group. The module lets our client be flexible with commissions while reducing manual work and human error.
