Client Profile

Our client has been operating cultural tours in Russia, since the early 2000’s. In addition to providing learning and discovery opportunities, they provide an experience that lasts. They are an active member of the tourism Industry.Business Challenge

In recent years, the development of worldwide travel applications has been outstanding. At the same time, due to the fast development of the travel business, it is necessary to offer travelers an enhanced travel platform. In order to support the travel industry to provide services in various ways, an online product is essential. An online travel guide application is to be developed according to the existing limitations of offline tourism.

The development of this feature-rich tourist interaction application involves the creation and development of an android application, web application and an admin CMS panel. The main goal of the application is to provide a wide variety of best places to eat, drink, shop, or visit in any city in the world. The application for the online tourism space is to be able to leverage Geofencing & Geo Targeting to provide the users with information/advertisements, exclusive deals, and show him/her Geo-targeted content.Suretek Solution

In order to achieve a satisfactory result, we conducted a market research on about how geofencing can be used to improve any travel guide application and helps drive revenue and leverage customer insights. The intelligent location-based mobile app is built in order to support location-based campaigns, enabling our client to send push notifications campaigns and design in-app experiences based on precise arrival and departure times of the users. The app empowers our client to reach their users in more advanced ways to drive engagement and conversion.

The intelligent location-based solution leverages geofencing for the most advanced real-time location detection to understand, engage and retain its users. The system relies on a comprehensive geo-awareness engine for mobile marketing automation systems to provide its users with coupons, restaurants based on location, stores/malls based on location and also provide the users with locations for adventures and tourist spots.Suretek’s Contribution & Work Profile
