PROTO:iXIGO

Posted by tggokul on January 21, 2007

iXIGO is a travel planning and travel search company. It intends to unify content, community and commerce. And it does it on an online and mobile platform.

What they are trying to achive is, a user can make an informed decision ( as to where to travel) based on the price of the airline tickets, community input ( as to what people think about this. A elementary social networking) and content ( what places that can be visited and when).

And I hear the first mention of AJAX 🙂 (read my earlier blog to find out why I think that is humorous). Need to check out how effective is the search engine. If that is good, I think this would be a company to take a good look at.Their demo video has been loaded as two parts. You can view them below
