Value we delivered

Handling lots of data

We integrated a large database of available vendors, each with a number of characteristics: their contacts, types of services, photographs and videos, special offers, awards, mentions in EventSource’s blog.

We added numerous filtering options for users to search for vendors and venues by keyword, event category, capacity, price, location, etc.

We used Google Maps API to enable location-based search and show each vendor on the map. For the map not to seem cluttered, we used powerful geoclustering techniques: several points on the map are combined into clusters as the user changes the scale.

Concise and clear UX

The customer-facing app includes 3 tabs: Explore (to explore the offers), My vendors (to view and manage booked services), and Messages (to communicate with selected vendors). The app covers all the steps of the event planning process from finding suitable vendors to checking their details and from booking and chatting with them to reviewing the experience.

When browsing through lists of offers and checking out vendor profiles, users can add any offer to favourites or share it. When a user books an offer, they get automatically transferred to My vendors. Users can use the in-app real-time chat that supports attachments or move to the native calling feature from the app.

If a vendor is mentioned in the company’s blog, the app can redirect a user to relevant blog posts.

Visual interactivity & Personalization

Vendor profiles include high-resolution photographs available for a 360 view and may feature videos collected from their Youtube or Vimeo accounts.

“We thought that their proposed milestones were ambitious. I remember being pleasantly surprised after the first demo. Perhaps based on previous experience, my expectations were too low, but the team really did deliver on a consistent basis.”
