UK holiday park operator Haven has launched a new Choose Your Holiday Home app that offers holidaymakers the opportunity to select the exact plot and caravan that they’d like for their upcoming stay.
Designed and developed by international digital agency Dept, the web-based application uses Google Maps API and adds layers of artwork onto the map to display Haven parks in detail. Users can see where points of interest are such as activities, food and facilities, take a look inside the caravans that are available, and easily upgrade their original booking with just a few clicks.
Talking about the delivery of the project, Neil Hobbs, IT Director at Haven, said: “We were determined to work in a truly agile way to deliver a working solution in record time. This involved creating a dedicated team within Dept that had a single focus, and real commitment from us as a customer to build the requirements. Ideas and solutions were very much co-created with Dept, which not only leveraged their expertise, but gave the team a deeper investment in the overall product.”
Haven works with a retained team at Dept, who deliver the client’s roadmap via two-week sprints, providing agility and rapid time-to-market.
Jonathan Whiteside, managing director at Dept Design & Technology said: “Haven’s partnership with Dept is hinged on our seamless integration as a product team; stakeholders from both sides are focused, invested and hugely excited about this project.”
Hobbs added: “...the team that Dept assembled were outstanding in both ability, energy and enthusiasm. The results have been outstanding with some of the fastest time-to-market results we have ever seen.”
The app is currently available to holidaymakers who have booked at Haven’s Rockley Park, Seaview and Weymouth Bay parks, with further roll-out planned throughout the season.view more - Creative
