“I was faced with the challenge to design and deliver a brand new community-driven travel site that required not only deep technical skills but also an astute knowledge of emerging web trends, business models and social strategies. It was clear to me that I needed a web ‘partner’ and not just a supplier. After a long search, we identified BrightLemon as the people for the job.
Using Drupal, an open source CMS, we set out on the journey with BrightLemon to build a rich social site that included all the features you’d expect from today’s popular social sites plus items specific to our value proposition. This included member generated travel guides with ‘save as draft’ options, integration with a complex hotel rate checking API and advanced ‘travel companion’ search using the latest search technology.
Has it been a success? We are still in the early stages of our site launch but our user feedback and customer growth is impressive. Over 95% of our users rated the good or very good, over 65% will use the site a bit or a lot more than before and over 2000 people have joined since its launch just a few weeks ago. That says it all really!”
