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.

Viciado no Evernote

Evernote

Registado desde 2010, mas sempre com uma utilização muito esporádica, o Evernote nunca foi uma ferramenta fundamental para o meu dia a dia, quer pessoal, quer profissional. Apenas usando de vez enquanto, umas notas aqui, umas notas acolá, tudo sem grande sentido e sem grande significado.. “É uma ferramenta engraçada”, pensava eu.

Então que este ano, com a motivação e a explicação de alguns pontos base de como utilizar o Evernote, a minha utilização foi aumentando de dia para dia, e com isso a criação de hábitos que me fizeram pensar em modo “mais Evernote”. De tal modo que cheguei ao ponto de estar completamente viciado com esta fantástica aplicação, e começo a colocar todo o “meu cérebro” lá, todos os meus pensamentos, informação recolhida para leitura e/ou estudo, registo de alertas com avisos por data, enfim, tudo, mesmo tudo.

Algumas das excelentes funcionalidades que o Evernote tem para te oferecer:

Guarda tudo o que vês

Viste um artigo que te parece interessante mas não tens tempo para o ler? Guarda-o numa nota e atribui-lhe uma tag “To Read” para o leres mais tarde no dispositivo que tiveres contigo (Notebook, tablet, smartphone..). E se quiseres criar uma lista de compras para um jantar que vais organizar em casa? Fácil, basta criares uma nota utilizando checkboxes por cada coisa que precisas de comprar, e depois é só fazer check das coisas que já tens prontas. Desde fotos, textos, documentos, pdf’s, muitas maneiras diferentes para guardar toda a tua vida numa única aplicação.

O Poder da procura

A tua memória já não é o que era? Basta colocares umas “palavras soltas” na pesquisas e as notas com essas referências vão aparecendo e despertando a tua memória para o que queres encontrar. Não interessa que as palavras estejam no titulo, no texto, numa foto, num pdf. Tudo serve como pesquisa no Evernote, é uma espécie de google search especifico para as tua memórias, neste caso, notas.

Sempre disponível, em qualquer hora, em qualquer lugar

Não interessa onde estejas, no escritório, em casa, em viagem, todas as tuas notas e funcionalidades estão disponíveis em qualquer dispositivo que estejas a utilizar, mesmo quando não tens ligação à net, as tuas notas estão disponíveis no teu smartphone. Agora não é só o teu smartphone que anda contigo, todas as tuas notas também.

Próximo passo? Neste natal, pedir ao pai natal uma conta premium do Evernote.. :)

E é claro que, este post, foi redigido numa nota.. :)
