We created HiChee.com to allow travelers to search for the best selection of vacation rental properties in Hawaii, while being able to compare prices between different booking sites, including booking directly with owners. The site is fast, attractive, and easy to navigate, offering a great user experience for travelers and property managers alike.

Leveraging reusable IP and developing critical skills

As a development sandbox for learning new technologies and writing beautiful code, HiChee.com allows us to develop the skills and best practices we need to be the best at what we do.

The impact of HiChee.com on Printivity.com, an eCommerce website for a digital print company priding itself on delivering the best user experience.

What I liked about ShakaCode is that they’d already done what we wanted to do, but for themselves on their website HiChee.com. They weren’t just using us as guinea pigs. They had an established development team along with a standard setup and development process that they’d already perfected launching real-world applications. Instead of starting something new, they were simply leveraging their existing skills and experience to replicate the success they’d previously achieved.

The impact of HiChee.com on Datacenters.com, the largest bidirectional marketplace supplying curated data center services and colocation facilities.

ShakaCode’s experience in building their own HiChee.com marketplace definitely helped. Creating a highly-visual website with a consistent user experience is critical to its success. Your developers must know the best way to provide a fast, easy, and consistent experience for managing text, images, and video. ShakaCode’s experience with HiChee.com definitely helped shape the success of the project.
