The company’s first mobile travel application was created by Travel and Transport’s internal developers over a decade ago and supported the Android, Blackberry, iOS, and Windows operating systems. Over the years, BlackBerry and mobile Windows use declined among corporate travelers. According to user analytics, approximately 85% of travel customers were using iPhones, and the other 15% were using Android devices. With this knowledge, Travel and Transport made a decision to focus on the iOS and Android operating systems.
Travel and Transport engaged with Propelics to implement a newly designed user interface/user experience (UI/UX) that Travel and Transport had constructed. Propelics’ role in this partnership was to implement efficient code to support the modernized UI/UX.
In addition, Travel and Transport understood the need to write and maintain a single code base and still deliver the apps to customers on both iOS and Android-based devices. Again, Propelics expertise provided Travel and Transport best practices around mobile architecture and UI/UX design to enable the migration from their native platforms to Xamarin’s MADP.
“We looked at several companies who each recommended different code bases, but Propelics’ expertise both in UI/UX and platform experience made the most sense for us,” said Mike Kubasik, Executive Vice President, and CIO, Travel and Transport.
