My Dream Holiday (MDH) is a simple, easy, and fun way to create personalized vacations. With over 750 destinations, 80 cities and 19 countries to pick from, it offers an intuitive way to custom build your holiday.
We divided the site into three different segments – cruises, holiday packages, and hotels. Each of these had to have its own workflow, its own feature-list, and its own third-party integrations. We also had to build a smart inventory management system in the backend that could be used by admins, agents, employees, or regular users to block, book, plan, and buy from.
Our design team was then involved in creating wireframes and then designing the look and feel of the project. There are different types of users in the system. A guy who’s planning a cruise trip needs as much attention and care as a guy who’s an agent and is doing his own business. Keeping the various stakeholders in mind, our team came up with the most efficient UI for the project.
Since this was a lot of custom application work, we chose the Code Igniter framework for this project to build everything from ground up. Various modules had to be created and coded, and various third party integrations were enabled via xml, and we also spent quite a bit of time to optimize the performance of the site so all the modules worked as a single unit and with top speed. It was a complex project, but we came out in flying colours at the end.
MDH is currently the largest cruise booking service in the country, and has serviced over 3000+ customers since inception. In a competitive market, our client is the king, and it gives us immense satisfaction that it is our team that has done all the work in the background.
The biggest challenge for a cash stripped start up is to find professional people to work with. The one who stick to their timelines without compromising of the quality and at the same time don't dig a hole in your pocket. Technology is our backbone when it comes to our business and hence we needed someone who is knowledgeable, quick and most importantly trustworthy.
Mydreamholiday is very lucky to find one with the aforesaid qualities in Bluehorse. We have been working with them for almost an year and never had to worry about the final product.
