North Start Travel Media

The client needed to re-design and rebuild their existing application that supports the educational initiatives on the industry leading Kentico platform.

About the Engagement


The client originally approached Korcomptenz because they were suffering from a perceived lack of support, technical expertise and depth, and strategic thinking from their current provider. The immediate need was to rebuild an existing application that supports educational initiatives for Travel Agents on the industry leading Kentico platform and implement an all-new design. The project included key upgrades and enhancements to improve the overall experience for both end users and administrations, plus automation opportunities to streamline the management user data including the management and completion of online learning courses for travel agents. Korcomptenz was selected as the partner in choice due to our unique combination of front and back-end expertise, understanding of complex data, and a long history of supporting the Kentico platform. This project was completed as part of a larger series of Kentico website implementations for the same customer for a total of eight distinct websites.

Key Projects and Achievements


Website Redesign and Customer Experience Improvements

An intuitive, impactful user-friendly website was a critical part of the client’s overall strategy. In addition to the usual considerations for an online educator, the client was challenged by the complex web hooks required to manage course completion and the unique management needs of supporting a complete online course catalog. Unlike a normal eCommerce storefront, visitors cannot simply browse products by category and add them to their cart. Courses need to be completed in sequence to unlock the next module, and therefore, an intuitive catalog feature where users can sort and view courses of interest plus a dashboard that centralized completion are essential. A user could have an optimal experience online only to lose their place in a module or accidently take the module twice.

The redesign project began by reimagining the user interface and design of the front end, identifying the out of the box features in Kentico that can support the overall management and online learning needs of the program, and ensuring smooth integration with an existing Learning Management System. In addition, special attention was paid to migrating a large number of users with their complete course history and providing an ongoing feed of completed courses to a third party analytics platform hosted on Amazon Web Services.
