SINGLE PAGE APP
TICKET SYSTEM PROVIDER
Entertainment, Culture and Education
We developed the single page application for Place2Book – a Danish online ticketing system provider. The original system allows event organizers to create events such as parties, festivals, courses, concerts, excursions, exhibitions, sports tournaments, etc.; receive subscriptions and/or sell tickets.
The Client was forced to support a number of separate tools in order to ensure ticket registration on various platforms (PC, Android, iOS). In order to simplify the process we created a single page application that would service scanning tickets across multiple devices (PCs, tablets and smartphones) with one and the same interface. As regards specific objectives, users were to be able to use smartphones and tablets to work with the Place2Book scanner on their own devices, the ticket verification process was to be faster and the scanner was supposed to be able to work without an internet connection.
In terms of functionality, the solution allows the event organiser to login into the mobile app, browse through and select the events for scanning, scan tickets and automatically synchronize them with the server; besides, the user gets visual and audio confirmation about the ticket status and is able to view detailed information about each ticket.
We developed the interface and added it to the client’s existing back-end app, which had been developed in Ruby on Rails and Mysql. As for the front-end, we used the following technologies: ember.js (MVC framework), jQuery Mobile (User Interface), HTML5 Application Cache (offline mode) and localStorage (data storage).
