DesignKarma was excited to be asked to redevelop the Riviera Travel extranet this summer, and it's nearly ready for roll-out. Riviera Travel are Europe's top escorted tour operator, and a longtime client. DesignKarma regularly consults on all things digital.
The new extranet will be used by Riviera's army of Tour Managers, who will login to view important updates, documents and news whilst on tour. Because these users will be accessing the extranet 'in the field' via mobile devices on data connections, simple responsive design and high performance super-fast pages were key components of the project.
Extranet powered by Craft
The extranet is powered by the excellent Craft platform and takes full advantage of Craft's user groups to tailor the user experience - so that Admins can publish information and documents, and choose which user group(s) (tour managers) can access that data.
This is the second Craft-powered extranet DesignKarma has worked on this year, with another launching this Autumn for a company dealing with health and safety compliance.
