DataArt Completes Social Community for timeshareAdvisor to Connect Resort Managers & Travellers
DataArt, a custom software development firm that builds advanced solutions for select industries, today announced the completion of timeshareAdvisor, a free, comprehensive travel review site with over 5,000 global properties for the Timeshare Resort Industry. The site allows resort managers to actively post rich content about properties and consumers to read and provide reviews in one collaborative community website.
timeshareAdvisor engaged DataArt to develop a site for the global timeshare community that is easily searchable, SEO optimized and rich in content. DataArt built the site’s functionality from the ground up, integrating a comprehensive content management system (CMS) and front-end options for consumers and resort managers. The site’s content management format enabled the content team to collect details on timeshare resorts, locations, amenities and attractions, as well as more than 100 GB of vivid images.
DataArt also created an open environment for developers, marketing and resort managers to directly control all aspects of listings at timeshareAdvisor, including advertising and managing consumer reviews. Consumers can communicate with the timeshare community through the sharing of photos and reviews as they search for timeshare vacation destinations. The social site’s interface promotes direct engagement between resort managers and consumers, increasing the sharing of information about resorts, availability and helpful tips about the area.
“timeshareAdvisor’s interface facilitates the much needed interaction between consumers and resort owners and managers in the timeshare market,” said Greg Abbott, Senior VP of Travel & Hospitality at DataArt. “Our collaboration with timeshareAdvisor created an interactive community that is both rich in content and functionality. It offers a scalable platform for real time user generated content to support the extensive timeshare marketplace. We continue to stay committed to delivering technology solutions that offer the highest quality of unique usability, scalability and productivity to our clients.”
“We had a wonderful experience collaborating with the developers at DataArt,” said Suzanne Harris, Founder and Chief Marketing Officer at timeshareAdvisor. “They completely understood our mission to fill the gap in the online travel community and create a resource for both consumers and resort managers.”
