Software Factory: Developing the Platform to Manage Offers for Timeshare Members

Software Factory: Developing the Platform to Manage Offers for Timeshare Members
CASE STUDY
The Challenge

To help our client develop the new platform for their rental program service.

The Outcome

The new website is for timeshare members or owners of their resorts. We changed the old IT platform and added the capability to enroll units in different available offers, and the capacity to see special offers and intervals in demand during the year.

Our client is a travel agency formed by a multidisciplinary team of professionals specialized in the timeshare industry. After managing rental programs of many resorts for fifteen years, they decide to improve the platform with which they have for their customers, keeping some functionalities and adding new features to improve their service.

Emeteclass collaborated by preparing the transition from the old application to the new one. Developing all the features concerned with units enrollment, their deposit and cancellation, status, and the process of inviting members with peak intervals to enroll their units and receive guaranteed rental income.

Our client is now growing their business, and looking to expand their services.

Software Factory: Developing A Trading Platform From Scratch!

Software Factory: Developing A Trading Platform From Scratch


The sharing economy model is an actual trend, with several well known providers pushing it. Such a model requires the existence of a trading platform, that has to be, at the same time, scalable, secure, and reliable. A must have functionality of any trading platform is the one that tries to maximise the outcomes of the people that are sharing and the ones that are looking for resources. Without that maximising match functionality, sellers and buyers (or lenders and borrowers) will be lost in a huge blue ocean of possibilities.

Here at Emeteclass we are helping one of our clients to grow, by developing a trading platform from scratch, totally focused on the client’s needs. The application includes the resources enrolment process, the request definition and a smart algorithm that matches the requests with the offered resources, while maximising the utilisation of the resources.

As usual, we are following an Agile methodology – Scrum – to guarantee the involvement of the interested stakeholders since the initial stages. Such an approach is fundamental to have a user-centric application that simplifies and optimizes the entire process.

Software Factory: Escrow – Payments & Transactions App

Emeteclass - Escrow, Payments & Transactions App

Emeteclass has developed a financial application where buyers and sellers can carry out escrow transactions between each other in a simple way.

In the last 4 months we have been, relentlessly, working on the development of a new financial application. The app implements a new service that the customers can use to easily, and effortlessly, plan their annual payment. Instead of paying the entire rent at once, this application gives the chance, for the client, to schedule the payment in a convenient and simple way. Along with the usual features, related with the payment configuration, validation and balance visualisation, the application includes a recommendation system that proposes the payment scheduling based in a set of parameters.

Software Factory: Budget Report Application For A Resort Group

Emeteclass - Budget report application for a resort group

Emeteclass has developed a budget report application for a resort group. The app simulates different forecast scenarios in order to evaluate the impact on the operations and monitor the financial health of the companies.

In this period of the year, it is a common practice in companies dealing with the budget. A budget is an estimate of future numbers based on information you already know. In practice, budgets estimate the profits, costs, expenses, financial performance, and cash flow of a business for a particular period of time.

Planning the business’ financial future will always be aligned with your strategy, and it is a very important issue for creating an economical sustainability in your business.

Addicted to Evernote

Evernote

Registered since 2010, but always with a very sporadic use, Evernote has never been part of a fundamental tool for my daily life, both personal and professional. Only using it from time to time, some notes here, some notes there, all without much sense or meaning .. ” It’s a funny tool” I thought.

In the last year, with the motivation and explanation of some basic points of how to use Evernote, my use has been increasing day by day, and thus, the creation of habits that had made me thinking more in “Evernote mode”. So I got to the point of being completely addicted to this fantastic application, and begun to put all “my brain” there, all my thoughts, information collected for reading and/or study, notes with dates, etc. It’s like I don’t want to forget anything, so I put everything, really everything.

Some of the fantastic features that Evernote has to offer:

Saves everything you see

Have you seen an article that looks interesting but you do not have time to read it? Keep it in a note and give it a tag “To Read” for you to read it later, maybe on your device (notebook, tablet, smartphone ..). And if you want to create a shopping list for a dinner you’ll organize at home? Easy, just create a note using checkboxes for everything you need to purchase, and then just check the things that you already have done. From photos, texts, documents, pdf’s, lots of different ways to save your whole life in a single application.

The Power of search

Your memory is not what it was? Just type a “loose words” in the search box, and notes with these references will appear, and at the same time, maybe your memory will be awaken with more findings. No matter where the words are, in the title, in the text, in a photo, in a pdf. Everything serves as a search in Evernote, it’s like a specific google search for your memories, in this case, notes.

Always available, anytime, anywhere

No matter where you are, at the office, at home, on the go, all your notes and features are available on any device you’re using, even when you don’t have internet connection, your notes are available on your smartphone. Now, not only is your smartphone walking with you, all your notes too.

Next step? This Christmas, i’m gonna ask Santa Claus an Evernote Premium account.. :)

Written in Evernote obviously.. :)
