The application allows you to browse the cultural and entertainment offer in Singapore and conveniently buy tickets to events (concerts, festivals, exhibitions, plays, film projections, etc.), galleries, museums or zoological gardens using only your thumb. Purchased tickets are stored in the application and have the form of QR codes scanned by the service at the entrance.
The management of events, prices and the number of tickets sold takes place via a special content management system (CMS), which is accessible to partners, and therefore organizers of events, galleries, museums and other public places. For partners selling tickets via ShakaPass we have also prepared a special mobile application that allows them to browse the list of people who bought tickets, and convenient scanning them at the entrance to the event and marking them as already used.
In the modern world, where smartphones are already the basic means of access to information and become an increasingly popular shopping channel, a convenient sales application for event organizers available on popular mobile platforms, supported by an equally convenient sales and information management system, is a must-have to get to as many clients as possible.
Lack of support for one of the leading platforms (Android), not very friendly application and inefficient sales and information management system, based on a platform whose development was being halted - these problems were faced by ShakaPass developers before they came to us.
The challenge set by the creators of ShakaPass required a complete reconstruction and change of thinking about this project. We started by creating a convenient sales data and information management system, available to ShakaPass partners, based on our own backend solutions using Ruby on Rails and our own API. Thanks to a special CMS they can add new events and events, manage content and determine the number and type of tickets available for sale. We have also rebuilt and added new features to already available client app for the iOS, and have written a version for Android from a scratch. We have also created a completely new application for partners, allowing for convenient scanning tickets purchased via ShakaPass.
Thanks to the actions taken by us, ShakaPass problems have been solved and the system has become widely available for the residents of Singapore.
