Planet Travel is a travel agency with over 15 years of experience in the market that aims to offer their clients the best travel experience. That led them to create Planet 01 Parents and Planet 01 Leaders. The first one is oriented entirely to parents so they can follow up their children's activities and communicate with them. The other is a platform to organize and monitor the students' travel groups. Its main feature is the ability of accessing passengers' information through a bracelet scan.

The challenge

Planet 01’s first challenge was to generate a platform that could connect parents with their children during the trip, making it easier for them to keep track of their kids' activities through pictures and comments. That way, parents felt closer to their children and confident that they were safe and sound.

Another challenge was to find a way to simplify done by hand processes such as the collection of passengers’ information, activities planning and passengers monitoring throughout the trip, without being affected by climate issues. These tasks used to be handled manually, which slowed down the interactions with the passengers and the trip execution.

The solution - Parents app

We developed a social network for parents where they can follow up their children's activities in detail and interact with them by seeing pictures and adding comments.

Features
- Activities’ list updated in real time.
- Information in detail about each activity.
- Possibility to leave comments.

The solution - Leaders app

We also worked on an app for the coordinators so they could easily keep track of the students and their activities, and evaluate the travel performance. Each student receives a bracelet at the beginning of the journey with information previously loaded in their profiles. In the case of an emergency, the bracelet also provides students’ medical information.

Prior to the project’s development, we analyzed a series of mobile devices reports to find out what were the right gadgets to use during a travel experience. Based on this analysis, we came to the conclusion that the best option was to acquire the CAT S40 model or higher level devices because of their excellent RFID reader, battery capacity and shock resistance.

Features
- RFID integration.
- Online/offline functionalities.
- Assignment of RFID bracelet to passengers.
- Access to passenger data and medical record by reading a bracelet.
- Control of activities and walks.
- Passenger groups’ management Management of passenger groups.
- Passengers count.

Results

The parents app promotes a closer engagement between parents and children during the trip, by providing details about the places they’re visiting and also the possibility of interacting through comments.

The leaders app along with the bracelets allow coordinators to monitor up to 20 activities per trip in a reduced time. Faster processes allow passengers to enjoy their travel experience more. By the end of the day, the leaders know who participated in the activities and those who skipped them. Gathering this information is vital for them to validate the daily performance as well as the trip in general.

Thanks to the previously mentioned app, the travel safety has also been improved. By reading the students’ bracelets, organizers get immediate access to their medical record, which can be of extreme value in case of accident or illness.

These products contributed to enhance the travel experiences of over 1,200 passengers and their parents in over 8 trips every year.
