Eastern Enterprise developed a state of the art mobile application for POSOSHOK, a leading Russian travel company.

About Pososhok

Pososhok is Russia’s leading online travel portal, providing a wide range of local and international travel services to the Russian community across the Commonwealth of Independent States. The company was established in 2001 to help tourists find the deals and offers, book flight tickets and hotels, rent a car, buy insurance, transfers and other travel services.

Pososhok aims to become the leading travel website not only for Russia but to the world’s 250 million Russian speakers.

PROJECT CHALLENGES

Travel companies across the world are mobilizing innovative and cost-effective solutions to harness information technology to market their products and services.

Our client also wanted to do this by developing a travel portal with API integration for hotel booking, flight booking, travel packages, car rental, insurance and other services.

The challenge in front of Eastern Enterprise team was to develop a custom CMS in PHP integrated with multiple third party APIs and to provide an RSS feed to the iPad App.

Our solution

Eastern Enterprise suggested to develop a Pososhok Travel Guide that would serve as a one-stop-shop for users planning a vacation and expand the reach of Pososhok into untapped markets.

This would include data for various regions/destinations from Expedia, Flickr, Eventful, Foursquare, Flickr, and Wikipedia. It would also allow users to mark destinations as their favourites and to have this information available over the web as well.

For the future complexity in the development, Eastern Enterprise set up a scalable architecture framework with customer maintainable technology.

TECHNOLOGY STACK

Eastern Enterprise proposed the following technologies to easily reach the requested functions:

  • MySQL

  • JQuery

  • Core PHP

End result

The travel application we developed allows users to do everything travel related from choosing their holiday location, making flight reservations and hotel bookings to return plans – all within one travel portal.

Pososhok is a full-service booking engine featuring an array of functionalities. Not only does it allow to search for and book air tickets, it enables you to thoroughly scrutinize available options, map out your trip, from door-to-door, select the best possible deals as well as self check in to your flight. The portal is considered one of the fastest growing in the region. The mobile end of the portal is seamless and attracts major attention. The app has multiple releases on the app store with every new release enhancing the user’s vacation experience.
