Jetcamp.com got in contact with Present Connection in the initial phase of the company. They heard about us via another customer in the travel industry. After a visit to the Lithuanian office where we discussed the idea, future plans, possible architecture and the possible team, both Jetcamp and Present Connection decided to team-up to make a success out of the collaboration.
In the first stage, Jetcamp and Present Connection defined the structures for collaboration and communication. Also, we had many discussions about architecture, technologies, functionality and roadmap.
The team of Present Connection exists out of developers, designers, and content providers. Together with the in-depth market knowledge and online marketing skills of the people of Jetcamp they are working hard to create THE platform for campsite holidays.
The idea of the platform is to give an active traveler the opportunity to search for campsites in one place in the way they want to do that. Here you can search for campsites, discover their facilities, look at photos, and visit camping websites.
From a software development perspective, this project is interesting to develop, because our team had to learn how to integrate new technologies like Elastic Search and complex SEO optimization algorithms, which helps to search faster in big data sets.
In the future, it is planned to improve the search engine, website design and offer more functionality like the opportunity to make a booking to users.
