UNIQUE TOURS HOSTED BY LOCALS

Background

Tourzy is a Kuwait-based startup backed up by K Ventures fund. K Ventures is a management consultancy exclusively working with early-stage tech startups across the West Coast USA, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia.

⚡ Challenge

The project involved the full-cycle platform development, starting from deep business analysis and product management workshops. It is always a challenge to handle such a wide range of activities within one team. The contractor which K Ventures was working with initially, unfortunately, didn't manage to deliver an expected result. After this negative experience, it hasn't been easy for the client to put a trust in another partner.

Nevertheless, thanks to having a similar vision of the processes, communication, and product development approach, the Wild Web Art team managed to get a chance to collaborate with the K Ventures on the Tourzy app.

✨ Solution

The Wild Web Art team developed Tourzy as a platform that connects tourists with local individual tour guides who provide them with a unique travel experience.

We started with setting up and looking for a common ground. Here at Wild Web Art, we understand that communication is everything. This is why we always start a collaboration with a kick-off product discovery workshop. It was the first meeting of our team and Tourzy product owner.

One of the first major tasks for the designers and business analysts team was to conduct deep competitors' research and create the user flow based on received insights. After we approve it along with the wireframes, the stage of UI design began.

The web app was developed using a reliable Laravel framework for the backend and Vue.js, HTML5 & CSS3 for the frontend.

As it happened, the project peaked in the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite all the substantial challenges and difficulties, we managed to complete the project successfully thanks to transparent communication within all stakeholders.
