Openseas came to Clever Starfish with a crazy idea: they wanted to build the most comprehensive cruise web site in Australia. They wanted a web site that listed not only every available cruise, but each ship, each ship’s cabins, decks, activities, entertainment and dining facilities, and every itinerary and price.
We love a challenge, so we took their data files – four different cruise lines supply six spreadsheet files each – and put together a system that lets Openseas staff easily import the latest pricing and availability from their suppliers’ files, and maintain the text and images from each area of the site online.
It was a massive undertaking but we’re very happy with the end result – a great looking web site that is easily the most complete cruise site in the country. We know that Openseas are happy too, and are busily planning the features they want to add for stage 2!
