"The Cohorts team quickly got up to speed with what was required and managed ongoing innovation and emerging needs during the life of the project very smoothly and professionally. It was a great demonstration of their ability to deliver a high level of experience around a web project, have the right people in place, answer technical questions and follow through with the answers." Matt Kardos
Grabaseat Tiki Trips provides a ‘passport to New Zealand’ – an easy way for travellers to share experiences, make connections – and enjoy great deals on airfares.
The development of Tiki Trips online presence was a complex process. As development partner to Contagion, we were required to understand and respond to the requirements of a number of client stakeholders, and build and implement a range of components.
Challenges included a requirement to integrate what we developed with Grabaseat’s internal systems and processes. All elements had to meet the very high online standards required by Air New Zealand. Load-balanced traffic allowed Tiki Trips to be scaled very quickly to meet demand, with multiple servers available to handle traffic.
Ongoing innovation during the project required us to respond quickly to emerging requirements in order to ensure we met strict release schedules and updates on demand.
The result; a highly successful online community-based environment with strong social media integration.
