Loom App, for the travel organizer
(PRWEB) March 01, 2017
Traveling the globe with a group of friends creates some of the most enjoyable and memorable experiences of our lives. Organizing those trips is another thing all together.
Two young Melbourne entrepreneurs have come up with a solution. Loom is a clever travel app that distinguishes itself from the pack by managing the early organizing phase of travel planning to help friends ‘travel together’.
Users are able to coordinate a set of dates and destinations which can be synced, shared and adjusted to suit the needs of all travelers.
Anthony Soriano and Jake Barker-Daish developed Loom while completing their commerce degrees at Victoria University in Melbourne. The two said, “We found that the main reason group travel plans fail to get off the ground is the inability to match each person’s timing requests and preferences. We wanted to ensure that all the excitement and momentum of the planning phase is not only captured, but transformed into action”
“All of the features we built into the app, such as ‘Group Chat’, alerts on ‘Matches’, ‘Near Misses’ and the ‘Live World Map’ - which is populated with the itineraries of traveling friends in your list - were all designed in line with the belief that travel is best enjoyed with friends”
Another clever feature of the app sees its itineraries display the branding of the travel companies they are booked with, along with a visual trip plan that is much more pleasing to look at than the traditional travel agent print outs. Unlike traditional itinerary creation methods, once the Loom itinerary is loaded in the app, the user has their own E-itinerary which is easily shared across social media.
Loom is principally aimed towards the ‘organizers’ of the group, the unsung heroes who somehow manage to pull the group together and get them from A to B. The boys went on to say, “While most other travel apps focus on the booking process, we understand that a lot of work goes in before that. We just got sick of all these great plans never amounting to anything and we wanted to do something about it”
Loom is now available to download for free on the App Store and Google Play.
