Homestay App

Unique experience, Seeking higher value from homestays and vacation homes

The Challenge

Travellers around the world need a seamless, omnichannel experience when they book tickets and stays. They always prefer a one-stop destination to accommodate all their travelling needs.

To stay ahead of the competition, the customer wanted to rollout a new line of business, on its android app and website, to cater to two rapidly growing customer segments: one, savouring experience and second, seeking better and higher value with the accommodation chosen during travel.

The Fast Track Story

ALTEN Calsoft Labs adopted a marketplace model that was rolled out to all their vendor partners. The mobile app enables home owners/hosts to choose price, cancellation policy, house rules and preferred guest types. The mobile app allowed the hosts manage the operations right from registering their properties, handle multiple listing/property types (bungalows, apartments, farm houses, jungle stays, house boats etc.)
