Project main features

User-friendly, mobile-enabled search

ESN wanted to provide their members with the easiest tool to find card discounts in their area. Nuvole put extra care in providing an enhanced search experience: location names autocomplete as the user types and an HTML5-based geo-localization service guesses the closest discounts based on the current user's location, a great help when browsing the site using a mobile device.

Data visualization using maps

The ESN card project was also meant as a way to visualize the network's strength towards prospective partners and stakeholders: search results can be displayed on a map for maximum impact, giving a site visitor the possibility to appreciate the initiative's size at a glance.

Fine-tuned search capabilities

Search is the project's key feature: Nuvole integrated the site with an enterprise-class Open Source search engine, Apache Solr, allowing for fast and accurate results, autocomplete and autocorrect of search terms, advanced data indexing, geo-localization services and faceted search.
