What started as a small family-based business and simple idea has now spread to become an internationally used website aimed at couples looking for a romantic getaway. The site lists locations from all around the globe. A sophisticated ad system is present in the site and around online networks which filter traffic.

I built the system using Codeigniter because I wanted to use a blank MVC canvas with a lightweight library. The site has a completely custom admin and sales backend which is securely protected. A system of alerts, task lists and custom-built procedural admin screens allow the whole company to be run online - right from the content management system to the financial documents produced for HMRC.

A custom e-mail marketing system for RT clients was also made - this allows signed up (opted in) users to receive updates on offers and advertisements which interest them within the romantic travel industry.

Project Overview

The brief: Create a web platform using CodeIgniter for a hotel listing site which measures interactivity and manages sales.

Outcomes: The Romantic Tourist is a website for romantic destinations all over the world. Again this system was built on CodeIgniter with an extremely comprehensive back end for sales, management and CRM.
