Delivering that level of installs in week one is unprecedented for a tourism destination VR app. We’re capturing imaginations with our virtual Scotland and we hope it will inspire users to come experience our great country for real. Thank you to everyone involved, I am really delighted and proud of the product we’ve all created here
Working closely with existing teams from Customer Experience and UI/UX Designers, right through to Backend API, Mobile and Frontend Web Engineers, we join forces to form one single team capable of creating scalable ways to deliver high quality products for the end consumer.
xDesign set out to create a solution that would show Scotland in all of its glory, by designing something that was both immersive and engaging and not restricted by language or geography.
We pitched a Virtual Reality app that would allow mobile app users to explore Scotland’s iconic attractions without having to leave their sofa, before building the app on iOS and Android using the advanced Unity gaming engine.
We worked closely with the team at St Andrews Links to map out the user journey of the typical visitor. With multiple different ways to play – from entering the fabled ballot for a chance at the Old Course, scheduled tours, invites from a friend, or booking over the phone – we needed to provide a one-stop shop that could benefit each and every visitor to the courses.
With this in mind, we designed and built the St Andrews Links app to work across all iOS and Android devices, providing everything a visitor needs before, during and after their journey to the Home of Golf.
ClickTravel wanted to deliver a quality end-to-end experience, from initial booking to travel, and felt the end part of that journey, the corporate traveller, was being under served.
We worked with ClickTravel to understand what a MVP for this product might look like: something that would become an essential tool, but could be facilitated with a minimum of impact on the API.
VisitScotland is the national tourism agency for Scotland, whose central goal is to attract visitors and promote Scotland as a destination, while maximising the economic benefits from tourism.
We responded to VisitScotland’s call for innovative solutions to promote Scotland to a wider audience, and worked in close partnership with their agency to deliver a stunning Virtual Reality app that immersed users in an interactive environment built around the country’s most iconic sights.
