Out and About
Out and About is a social enterprise created to enhance island life for people of all ages. The platform is an easy to use, central hub where you can find out whats on, discover interesting places, buy tickets for events & activities and read interesting articles written by local experts. Out and About work with their partners to produce exclusive offers for their subscribers and the best part is that they are reinvesting their surplus profits back into the island community.
The Out and About web application has been an ongoing project for the Doodle Labs team. The goal of the platform is to provide the island with a central hub where people can find out whats on, purchase tickets for events and for subscribers an array of outstanding offers that will save people money whist generating more revenue for businesses that use the platform.
This project was wire-framed on a whiteboard and designed & prototyped in Adobe XD so that we could really see and fine tune how users would interact with the application before beginning the build process. The platform was developed using vue.js and Laravel in order to provide users with a a native app like experience.
The platform has gained a lot of traction amongst the industry with support from Digital Jersey, Visit Jersey, The Jersey Hospitality Association, LibertyBus, Caring Cooks and many other businesses across the island. Out and About would like to invite business owners to attend our demonstration of the application on the 26th September 2019 at the Digital Jersey hub from 16:00.
The event will have guest speakers from Digital Jersey, Visit Jersey and the JHA, you can obtain your free tickets here
