They offered seamless experience, chosen hotels and acknowledgeable experience which inturn resulted in warm welcoming the application.

Business Requirement

The client wanted a mobility platform that would transform guest experience. They required a solution that would bind their hotel partners and improve booking which would reduce the possibility of rooms being left vacant and consequently drive revenue.

Project Overview

The project involved development of a software application that covers the entire gamut of activities right from portraying deals to the booking phase. We helped develop a content management system (CMS) for hotels with a mobility platform for enhancing deal booking. We delivered a successful user friendly mobile application for the guests improving the customer booking. The application is created in such a way that even if the person is not a resident of the locality, he does not face any difficulty in imprinting the location and facilities of the booking

Grapelime Solution

Grapelime developed a mobile application that works seamlessly on Android devices. The application gives customers access to various deals that makes booking simple and hassle free. The application processes the customer's location and displays the nearby deals. Once the booking is placed the client can check the status and background information of the person placing the booking which further helps in any required communication between the hotel staff and the guest. The client is provided with a user friendly backend login so as to manage the deals to be posted, update the content and images and view the queries at the support desk.Grapelime developed an application suite that includesGuest app - AndroidClient software - Content management system
