TravelTech Software Development

What is TravelTech?

The use of technology in travel has become a growing trend in recent years. Traveltech applications are on the rise and have seen a lot of success over the past few years. There are many different types of these apps: from digital booking agents like Airbnb to transportation apps like Uber. This is why it’s important for organizations to be aware of these trends early on and implement them into their business model.

A traveltech app is a type of technology that helps travelers plan their trip and make the most out of their experience. It allows people to research hotels and flights, book cars, explore attractions, find alternative routes and more as well as be able to share these experiences through social media in real time.

How to Start a TravelTech Company

A lot of entrepreneurs want to get into the online travel industry and make their mark on it. The only problem is, they don’t know how to start a TravelTech company. This article will help you understand what that entails and walk you through the process of getting your business up and running.

To make your company a success, it’s important to establish your brand, figure out how to reach your target audience, and build a marketplace that will have people looking at your product. These three steps should be done before you launch the actual application or website.

In order to be a game-changer in this industry, you need to learn about the latest technologies and trends. You can start by building your own mobile app or web app which can help your business grow at a faster rate.

FoodTech Software Development Steps

Empathizing

  • Defining and understanding the participants and roles in the product being created – in the development process and in the target solution
  • Defining and understanding the end user

Problem definition

  • Defining the problem that exists in the market for a given user profile
  • Frame your problem statement according to specific users

Ideation

  • User story mapping. Defining the Product Backlog (scope of work) with the help of User Stories describing the processes
  • Sketches (low fidelity) presenting the user flow in the application
  • Definition of processes interacting with other modules

Building prototypes

  • High fidelity wireframes visualizing the graphical interface
  • Extending mockups with a clickable prototype
  • Database structure. Database model describing table and field structure

UI/UX Product Design

The key is to select the most important problems whose solution will significantly change the life of the target user. Thanks to such an approach, already at the stage of Discovery and Design, it will be possible to build a successful product on the market much faster. It is always worth asking yourself the question “what value does the feature give to our user? Is it worth the investment?”

Software building – Development stage

Currently, most solutions are designed in the mobile-first model, while assuming that the main device through which users will use the application will be a phone. Technologies available on the market nowadays enable very fast creation of cross-platform solutions, thanks to that while creating a mobile application we can prepare it to work on Android and iOS devices. If our MedTech solution will be used also on a computer, in a browser, it is worth considering creating a Progressive Web App (PWA).
Whether we build a mobile app or a web app, in order to use the server connection, we need to build a server app that is responsible for processing data and communicating with the other services.
Frontend application is simply what we see on our computer or phone screens - graphical interface. One of the parts of building software is to create front-end layer, which in communication with server application (backend) will display data to user and will allow to interact with whole system.

Our TravelTech Software Development Services

Web & mobile solutions

The world is becoming a digitalized one with the advancement of technology. Digitalization is creating new opportunities and making travel more convenient, productive, and outstanding.

We are living in a digitalized era with technological advancements. With the advancement of technology, it has created an opportunity for travel companies to provide customers with various services and products through mobile apps like booking hotels or flights.

While the digital industry is moving towards mobile and web solutions, TravelTech Company has put its weight on both. They are not only offering their customers a website but also a mobile app where they can access their travel plans and book last-minute trips.

Internet of Things in TravelTech

The Internet of Things is becoming one of the most sought after technologies in the corporate world. Some companies are even using it to create better user experiences. In this blog, I will discuss how the Internet of Things can be implemented in a travel technology company

This technology can be used for improved customer experience, increased profitability, and lowered operational costs. As a result, companies should make sure that their software architecture is ready to support this new technology.

Blockchain Solutions

Blockchain is the underlying technology that enables cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. It’s an online ledger that records digital transactions.

Blockchain can also be used to help companies improve their business processes as well as create new ones. There are many use cases for blockchain in traveltech company, such as:

– enabling a transparent experience for guests with personal data stored on a blockchain database

– providing full traceable history of every aspect of their stay to the guests and the hotel’s management

– increasing revenue opportunities by simplifying payment processes, reducing third parties and improving customer engagement through loyalty programs

Third-party Integrations

Third-party integrations are apps that integrate with other software systems by offering new functionalities or ways of doing things. These applications can be integrated into different types of software platforms such as e-commerce platforms and mobile apps.

This has led companies to see third-party integrations as the way of the future. By using APIs that are provided by a third party, it becomes easier for brands to provide a more seamless experience for their customers.

This can also eliminate the need for multiple apps which is often a source of confusion amongst consumers. A recent example of this is the integration of Hilton Worldwide’s app with UberEats in order to deliver food orders from an airport terminal.

    Q2 Smart Lockers

    I have worked with the GMI Group on many projects over the last 4 years. I have always been satisfied with the quality of the commissioned works, which were made by Mikołaj Lehman and his entire programming team.

    GMI has unique skills to translate ideas into reality. They are very efficient, discreet and, above all, trustworthy.

    See Case Study

    Budlex

    From the beginning, GMI was able to anticipate possible risks and interruptions. The design environment was adapted to our working mode and was simple enough for the product owner to meet his requirements and those of the development team.

    Thanks to the great attention to the quality of the code, the project was delivered on time and there were no internal complications associated with the product development. However, there were external complications (service providers), which GMI helped to solve with us.

    Coders Lab

    With the greatest pleasure and full responsibility, we recommend GMI as a professional contractor for web applications and CMS systems. We chose GMI primarily because they approached our inquiry very professionally. Very fluent contact at an early stage of talks announced that the implementation would be equally efficient and it actually was.

    If there is an opportunity in the future to jointly implement another project, we will definitely use the services of GMI again.
