Travel Guide and Trip Planner

Personal Travel Guide and Trip Planner App

Veltrod developed a personal travel guide for a tourist company based out of Singapore. The web portal and seamlessly integrated mobile application help tourists find points of interest in Singapore and plan their trip accordingly.

The Client

The client is a Singapore based tourist information services company aspiring to become a global leader in the information services market for the tourism industry.

Business Need

The client wanted to provide its users easy access to information on points of interest (POI) in Singapore and help plan their trip on their mobile devices. The mobile application would act as an eGuide providing real-time information to tourists.

Veltrod Solution

Veltrod enabled users to create a personal trip plan that can be downloaded (as an application) on to a mobile phone during the travel. A user can provide preferences for food, interests, and places of travel as part of his/her profile. An intelligent rule engine then creates travel itineraries and geo-localized list of Places of Interest (POIs) based on the profile.
