Urbanesia, Indonesia's leading local review site that provides directories of Hotels, Restaurants, Shops and Businesses lists 250.000 business listings around Indonesia. Urbanesia is available on desktop and mobile web browser to search for business information around a location.
But what about people who are on the move and want to find the nearest well-rated hotel to rest-up for the night or the nearest popular nasi padang place for a quick snack without going through the hassle of opening up a web page or without a data plan? Using Creatary, Urbanesia has built quick, slick services that allow people to look up listings by SMS, with the location coming from the Creatary API no matter what cell phone is being used! This way there's no need to have an app downloaded, no GPS required and its super quick. Additionally Urbanesia have chosen a Rp 1.000 tariff for this service of which they receive 60% - not bad for a week's worth of development effort!
Urbanesia's super-active CEO Selina and versatile Cheif Innovation Officer Tista were quick to jump on a new concept and were able to use our tutorials as guidelines to quickly develop services for the convenience of their users.
Here are some examples of the service in action:
Creatary APIs Used:
- Messaging (with Premium SMS to monetize it)
- Urbanesia list the services on their website and also on the Indosat USSD publishing option.
