Ukraine is great! And you know what? Cherkasy Region – the country's geographical heart – is great as well! To plant that thought in more peoples' minds, Everlabs decided to collaborate with the local Department of Regional Development and create travel software.
The bottom line is simple – the mobile app should help tourists from all over the world find and visit all of Cherkasy Region's must-see sites – from museums to cathedrals – individually or with the help of ready touristic routes. And help them find places to stay and eat, of course.
Balancing between commercial projects, the Everlabs team needed to master guru-level of time management and team allocation to turn this free social initiative into outstanding software. Mobile apps for both iOS and Android platforms had to be super simple yet super comfy, making the user experience as smooth as possible.
Since the app was supposed to have a lot of dynamic content that needed to be managed by local Department of Regional Development specialists, Everlabs also wanted to create a simple and clear admin workflow for non-tech people.
Minding both end-users travelers and partners from the local state institution, Everlabs managed to create a user-friendly mobile app with an easy-to-use admin panel. To ensure that, Everlabs conducted user-testing involving representatives of the Department of Regional Development and the potential target audience of various ages, professions, and interests.
Thanks to Everlabs' designer, the software interface's visual part combines authentic Cherkasy Region identity elements and best-practices UI/UX patterns. At the same time, the engineering team built the app in a way it doesn't take up much space on users' phones and can work even offline.
The Visit Cherkasy Region mobile app was officially launched in 2020. Today users can get it from both the App Store and Googe Play market and choose the English or Ukrainian language of the interface.
The app contains 100+ places to visit, unique tourist routes, and travel advice. The software allows users to open the objects’ locations from it in Google or Apple maps so that tourists can manage their plans and paths most comfortably.
