Westgate Resorts - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

I did not have any development or coding experience prior to my position on the Westgate mobile app team. However, we have a strategic partnership with an industry leading third party app developer.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

The most challenging aspect of creating the Westgate Resorts app was bringing our visions and concepts to life. A lot of it is trial and error. New functionalities can be time-consuming.

Westgate Resorts was founded in 1982 and operates as a subsidiary of Central Florida Investments, Inc. (CFI). Starting with a 16-unit resort at Westgate Vacation Villas, it now encompasses more than 14,000 villas at 22 beautiful resorts in premiere travel destinations throughout the United States. Employing about 10,000 people, Westgate Resorts has expanded into the largest privately held corporation in the Central Florida area. Mr. David Siegel Jr. from Westgate Resorts answered the interview questions.

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

A few of my favorite apps are Tesla, LandGlide, and SuperBook Sports. I enjoy these apps because they're intuitive and easily customizable with a clean user interface.

How long have you been working on this app?

We launched our app in 2018. I’ve been working on the app for the past year and a half. My focus is on future development and marketing campaigns.

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

My goal was to create a platform for owners and guests to easily manage their vacations, loyalty status and benefits.

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.

The Westgate Resort App gives you full control of your vacation and your life. While at home you’re able to book travel excursions and maximize your savings with discounts nationwide.

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

Not only is the Westgate Resorts app receiving a sophisticated and modern redesign, we will also have a mobile concierge to create seamless experiences for individuals, businesses and groups. You’ll have access to personalized itineraries, reservations and direct requests with our resorts.

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.)?

I would like to tell any new user that has downloaded the Westgate Mobile App that there is a lot more to come. We have finally dedicated a full time team working towards the next phase of the Westgate Mobile App.
