Available on everything you use every day. Our fully responsive retina ready user interface design auto sizes to all device sizes dynamically. Built using the latest HTML5 and CSS3 design techniques allowing for a seamless multi device user experience.
The end user is at the core of everything we do. Our main objective is to ensure our platform is highly usable, modern, elegant, simple and most of all user intuitive. We achieve this with collaboration between our coders, designers and our users. Our extensive focus groups ensure that what we have designed is both easy to use and modern in design techniques. We achieve this with this multi collaborative approach. Our simplicity in the transactional aspect of the platform provides a simple maximum 3 click process flow of any aspect of the platform functionalities.
The planning stage is arguably the most important, because what’s decided and mapped here sets the stage for the entire platform. This is also the stage that requires attention to detail. At Gad we take this as the most important stage in our design process.
The design stage involves moving the information outlined in the planning stage further into reality. The main functions are documented in a site structure and, more importantly, a visual representation.
Development involves the bulk of the programming work, as well as loading content. By keeping code organised and commented, and referring constantly to the planning details as the full platform design takes shape.
The testing phase ensures final polishing of design elements, deep testing of interactivity and features and, most of all, a consideration of the user experience. Our multi-layer testing ensures our designs are browser compliant, device compliant and moreover user friendly.
The Gad platform template is completely manageable using an easy to use admin panel theme management functionality. From basic colours, to fonts, from logos to menu’s, all are managed simply and instantly. Every element of the design output has been carefully considered and made dynamic for self-management.
The cart is at the heart of our platform flexibility. Users can simply drag and drop, or select purchase items into our side swipe opening cart. Users can build their cart contents and view these at a click. Modern techniques that simplify user experience have been designed after extensive research and focus group feedback making our cart functionality the first of its type in a travel and loyalty redemption platform. Furthermore our platform allows partial redemption capabilities. So users can use part points and part credit card for payment of cart items. A simple one page check out ends the customers transactional journey.
The Gad platform comes with a highly modern and user friendly dynamic packaging tool. Users can simply add and remove aspects of their package and conduct a single search for complex itineraries. We have incorporated our unique drag and drop functionality here too, again further enhancing the user experience and providing a new and modern way to self package.
The user dashboard is the command centre for all user post booking or redemption and settings functionalities. Designed with a modern, informative widget based dashboard which allows users access to the most important information instantly in a snapshot. Furthermore, our profile management allows users to set preferences and user booking details for future usage without the need of constantly adding the same details time and time again. Further enhancing the speed of checking out. Adding seats and meals is also made very simple directly from the user dashboard.
User preferences are also configurable to ensure a seamless user experience. In addition, we have a built a delegate access module for families and colleagues who want to share an account. The user can simply permit or revoke delegated access to their account at a click. A whole load of features further enhancing and simplifying the users journey.
We know it can be cumbersome for frequent bookers to have to keep searching for the same itineraries over and over again. To make it simpler we have incorporated a customised favorites functionality which allows users at a single click to recheck and book itineraries which are frequently taken.
Our Hotel map view allows users a greater insight into Hotel’s in the locations that matter most. With a modern and graphically enabled view, users can be sure to select the hotels that suit their needs much more accurately.
The Gad platform comes with built in integrations with a range of content suppliers and payment gateways. Our techies are at hand to custom integrate any third-party suppliers that you may require simply and efficiently.
