About the project

The project aimed to fundamentally improve and redesign the user experience and the user interface of the search engine's partner portal. The focus was on two different areas: optimising the data quality of the accommodations and making the provided statistics clearer and more accessible to users. A key challenge was that the quality of the data is largely dependent on user input. Therefore, a strategy was developed to indirectly motivate users to improve their information and thus increase the likelihood of a booking. To this end, a scoring system was introduced that specifically points out weaknesses in users' data and provides concrete recommendations for improvement. This allows users to significantly increase the booking chances of their inventory. In addition to improving data quality, user-friendliness and data visualisation have been improved. This should enable users to better understand their data and optimise it in a more targeted manner. As part of these innovations, a new design was also developed, which rounds off the look of the entire portal and brings it up to new standards.


  • Measurement of optimizations through user surveys.
  • Introduction of "action tasks" for user control
  • Design according to existing development standards

The client is very satisfied with the elaborated result, as the optimization of the user experience contributes to a significant improvement of the accommodation data quality. The points system contributes to the increase of booking opportunities, while the revised statistics and the new design increase the usability. Overall, the project is a significant improvement of the partner portal, which becomes measurable through the large amounts of data.
