Given the visual appearance of the application, some experience with bespoke theming of native controls is a must. Experience with either PaintCode or Pixate is a plus.
We need to make sure the app can react to information it is being fed from the desktop site and through telephone bookings as well, and we need a robust system in place to support that. We plan to set up a gateway server in house to act as an intermediary. This way we can use our servers to make sure that information being sent from the client API via other booking systems is checked and sent on to the app correctly and vice versa. This helps to create a seamless user experience whether the user makes a booking with the client via desktop, telephone or app.
- The user will remain logged until the app is closed. At this point the app will consider the user ‘signed out’ and subsequently authentication will be required.
