Flixbus is one of Europe’s leading long distance transportation providers with the largest intercity bus network across Europe.
Flixbus has a broad network of partners across Europe and the United States.
The challenge was to make the Partner Portal useful and convenient for all the partners according to their business needs.
In 2013, Flixbus was a startup with a vision of providing affordable transportation for everyone. Flixbus is a bus company that owns no buses but provides transportation services through a broad network of partners. Therefore, they needed to build a platform for partners that worked flawlessly around the clock. Flixbus also required support with eCommerce infrastructure as there was a highly sophisticated system that connected travellers with the Flixbus backend systems.
Ciklum provided Flixbus a team of world-class developers to kickstart the project with fast-paced development and new features and ideas on a daily basis.
Flixbus has a powerful platform capable of serving hundreds of thousands tickets daily and Ciklum developed software responsible for almost everything that happens while the bus is on the road, including case management, traffic control, operations etc. The new system helps reduce the load on personnel during peak hours and keep the staff stable even though the fleet has doubled.
It was crucial to have the entire user interface consistent. Ciklum developed a UI kit to keep the style consistent for all Flixbus products.
Ciklum also built a new platform for FlixBus to manage relationships with partners in their broad network across Europe and the United States.
The technology partnership between Ciklum and Flixbus has been flourishing for 5 years and is still ongoing.
