Feedback from clients has been great. It is really helping team managers with the logistics of each team member's itinerary.

Exciting news... we have just launched a bespoke app for the UK's leading sports travel company, Travel Places.

We manage the travel logistics for participants in world events, such as Formula 1, the America's Cup, World Cup Football, Commonwealth Games, so this app now allows each team member to access their own personalised real-time itinerary for everything, from flights to car rental, hotel bookings to transfers - any time, anywhere.

To save clients' time, administration costs and facilitate quick and easy access to real-time travel itineraries, Travel Places invested in the new Travel Places app.

We are delighted the app has gone live. This was a great project and thoroughly enjoyable. It was built using the hybrid open source framework - PhoneGap, allowing us to target Blackberry, Android and iOS operating systems – without exponentially increasing the cost. The app also has a companion site that allows Travel Places staff to manage and invite new users.

The custom backend was built using Django and our popular open source project Django REST framework to build the API endpoints required.
