Orbit Mobile Apps

Satellite design, build and operate the mobile applications for Orbit World Travel.

The mobile apps allow corporate travellers access to an interactive version of their travel itinerary. The apps deliver various content services to provide recommendations on things to see and do at each destination along with personalised travel info. The apps also deliver useful tools such as currency conversion, weather, maps and destination guides.

Th power of beacons

As part of the exclusive service provided to their corporate clients, Orbit wanted to use the power of beacons to surprise and delight their travellers at appropriate times. We created an online administration enabling Orbit staff to configure and manage their beacons. They then used this to set up special welcome messages in selected hotels nationwide.

As the traveller arrived at the hotel, an automated push notification would welcome them on behalf of Orbit and offer them a bonus of some sort.

Attention to detail

To further personalise the travel experience for their customers, Orbit staff can preregister their clients in the app, so when the client downloads and installs the app, they get a very smooth path to logging in and accessing their itinereray information.
