OTA Data Management for the Convenience of Ownership Experience
The need to break new grounds in a car buying experience. The impact of COVID-19 and quarantine measures on the number of customer visits to showrooms. Inability to present all models of cars in a showroom. For example, the newest ones that can be ordered but yet are not presented physically in a showroom.
A web application that allows investigating both interior and exterior of cars offered by the dealership and making an order online.
Emerline had to plan the development of a web solution that would provide added convenience to an online car buying experience. The app has to offer a close-to-real experience of visiting a showroom, allowing a user to investigate the interior and exterior of a chosen car model in a 360 view, from every angle, and then make an order online.
- We decided to build the application using Python as a primary language for development.
- To offer a 360 view tour experience, we took advantage of Panolens.js that works with panoramic pictures and allows setting infospots.
- The solution was integrated with payment systems to allow users to make orders and pay for chosen car models online.
Here are the key features for the first release of the app:
- 360-degree view of a chosen car, both from the inside and outside;
- Tours are labeled, so when investigating a car’s interior, a user won't get lost somewhere in a pedal block;
- Tours are guided with text messages that highlight all the essentials to learn about a chosen model of car;
- In-app order and pre-order creation;
- In-app payment.
