Destination Rotorua NZ

SCOPE: Collabortive design, EMS implementation, hosting, support & ongoing partnership.

Destination Rotorua Marketing sought a new engaging, multifaceted website that had extensive connections to third party data sources including Tourism New Zealand & CRM. A major feature of this multi-site implementation was the ability for third parties to update complex multi- strata listings, and the utilisation of advanced enterprise marketing features such as personalisation.

Testimonial

Destination Rotorua Marketing 'Delivered Exceptionally'

Destination Rotorua Marketing (DRM) engaged Kudos to develop a new RotoruaNZ.com website in 2013. Kudos delivered exceptionally on the brief to build a visually engaging website on the available source platform Kentico, combining seven portal websites, integrating APIs to allow external operators to log in and control their listings on the site, and creating custom search options for domestic and international visitors. The brief was to have phase one of the website live in 2 months and while that was a challenging task – Kudos successfully made it happen. Since then phases two and three of the website have been in development and Kudos continues to be a strong part of the delivery team.
