How we helped a travel start-up build a high-rated mobile app for the travel industry

The challenge

An entreprenuer from San Diego had an idea. What if I wanted to move seats on my airline flight? Would someone be willing to buy or sell their seat?

The solution

Seateroo, a mobile application, is the first peer-to-peer marketplace for airline seat swaps. Seateroo supports every aspect of the market: order entry, negotiation, electronic payments, and more.


Payment and bank account info is used for an easy to use, safe and secure peer to peer payment system.

User Experience

Armed with data through rigorus user testing, the Seateroo app is user-friendly with an easy set up for even easier usage.

Disruptive Business

Never has there been an airline seat swapping with monetization between travellers - we mapped out the entire exchange through a unique business logic and product architecture.
