Challenge

Intuitive platform for hosts and guests with the look & feel of roadsurfer.com

On the one hand, camping guests should be able to conveniently book their favorite pitch with just a few clicks on spots.roadsurfer.com. On the other hand, it had to be as easy and intuitive as possible for providers of pitches (hosts) to offer a pitch on the portal. Another focus was on the convenient search fuction for spots. And, of course on a smooth payment system, DGTLS was to set up an attractive web presence based on the content management system Pimcore, analogous to the existing look & feel of roadsurfer.com with an integrated shop, booking section and a login function for hosts (pitch providers) and campers (guests).
Solution

Clear and various booking and administration options for hosts and guests

Based on the corporate identity of roadsurfer, DGTLS designed and programmed a login area for hosts and guests. Guests can use spots.roadsurfer.com to search for parking spaces at their desired location, at the planned travel times and for their vehicle category. A map provides an overview of the exact location of the available spots. Another highlight is the detailed information (including price, size, availability and photos) for each parking space. The booking overview always provides an overview of the booked pitches and reservations can easily be cancelled, extended or rebooked. A login area has been implemented for hosts, which makes managing pitches just as easy and convenient. In the calendar view, hosts can see their booking capacity and the occupancy rate of their pitches at any time. Hosts also have the option of blocking pitches for individually defined periods.
"With Pimcore we were able to develop an indivudal solution tailormade for a heavily expanding sector. We include numerous different language versions, a large number of individual Spot detail pages as well as the complete booking process in one solution. Due to the intuitive handling we are able to implement all adaptions rapidly and efficiently. Pimcore really supported roadsurfer Spots expanding their business."
Sebastian Drickl, Managing Director DGTLS GmbH
