Gotogate - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

I don’t have any coding experience but I have been working closely with dev teams as a Product Owner for the last almost 2.5 years.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

Etraveli Group comprises a number of brands including Gotogate, Supersaver and Mytrip. It was challenging to find the right way to incorporate all of those brands into one unique App.

Aspasia is a product manager having many years of experience working with a diverse team of app developers.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

There is one App I use almost every day, the Google Maps App. It has taken a quiet position in my everyday life. It is intuitive, helps me avoid the traffic and saves all the places I have visited. Even when I park my car I can save the parking space which is really helpful as a feature especially when it comes to areas that I am not very familiar with.

How long have you been working on this app?

We started in September 2018 and had our MVP release in May 2019. As the time goes by we are continuously working on adding more and more features while at the same time we are making improvements based on our users needs and feedback.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

To have all the details of their upcoming trip into one place and notify them when something changes.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

We made this app to make our customers’ flight experience from booking to traveling more pleasant and easier. The flight industry is very complicated and sometimes not clearly understandable by the travelers. All they need is to book easily, find the lowest possible price and avoid any struggle with processes such as buying extras or checking-in. We provide all of those capabilities. The customer can book, enhance their trip with extras such as baggage and when it comes to the price, we have used the elimination of the marketing cost for the benefit of our customers. We, therefore, offer the cheapest possible price compared to all our rest channels. Since Etraveli is Europe’s leading flight-focused OTA, we have the expertise to offer competitive flight content that differentiates our app from the others.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

In the near future, the users will be able to check-in their flight via the App. The boarding passes will also be saved in the App. This enhances our intention to let our customers do everything related to their trip through our App. Everything in one place, all the way from booking a flight to travel.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

To book their next flight through the App, try its features and provide any feedback that they believe will make our App better!
