Another project we’re very proud to have delivered is Sanctifly.
It’s one of the most exciting Travel apps to emerge from Ireland and a super example of how the team at TEKenable use technology to deliver value for our clients.
Sanctifly is an app that allows travellers to access gyms, pools and spas near airports across the world. It offers a health-conscious alternative to the bar or restaurant for anyone with free time at the airport and it’s also very convenient – travellers just find a facility, book it and pay for it on their smartphone.
Founder Karl Llewelyn got the idea for Sanctifly when travelling regularly between Ireland and the United States. He frequently found himself waiting for hours between flights and wished he could use some of the time to exercise. However, he had no way of finding out where he could go.
He began to think – “What if there was an app that provided all this information, and what if it also allowed you to book and pay on-line ?” – and that’s when the idea for Sanctifly was born.
Having got the idea, Karl now needed a technology partner to deliver on his vision. Through a contact, he met TEKenable. That initial discussion went well, as Karl explains “TEKenable immediately grasped what I was trying to achieve, they also have extensive experience of designing apps and helped me think through issues I hadn’t even considered.”
Based on his meeting, Karl chose TEKenable to deliver the Sanctifly app. Just three months later, after many iterations and lots of fine tuning the project was complete and the app launched through the App Store and Google Play.
