Australian Pacific Touring

APT Hero.jpg

APT and IE together created an award winning travel website, transforming the customer experience for trip planning and purchasing.

APT is an award winning, Australian owned travel company offering cruises and tours on every continent. IE was able to navigate this complex portfolio of products to deliver a technology platform which is both beautiful and easy to use.



The following processes were followed in order to deliver an industry leading solution to market:

  • IE Agile Plan - 4 weeks of analysis, design and backlog planning for delivery

  • Delivery Sprints - the project was broken down into releases, to be delivered over a 12 month period

The biggest innovation on the site is the pricing section, which means customers can plan down to the dollar what the trip is likely to cost.
