Built With Qt
Qt partner Bitfactor helped Savonlinja to take the digital leap to completely renew their digital services and claim a pioneer position among their competitors. The result of this project was a complete rework of their web store's functionalities as well as mobile applications for drivers and passengers for iOS and Android, built with Qt.

A consistent user experience regardless of the platform was critical for this project, both from a user interface and experience point of view. Qt's cross-platform technology made this a fast and easy task because all the major functions had to be designed and developed only once.
Both Bitfactor and Savonlinja were very happy with the application's performance with QML. Qt Quick Controls 2 provided all the needed touch UI controls for a modern UI. If there was anything missing or some customization needed, it was very fast to implement.
Savonlinja Oy started a schedule-based service between Lappeenranta and Lauritsala with a brand-new T-Ford in 1924. Today Savonlinja is a family-owned company employing over 700 transport professionals. Savonlinja operates with over 500 buses, mainly in Eastern and South-Eastern Finland, the Helsinki metropolitan area and the Turku region. Each year the company carries approximately 15 million passengers, and the buses run more than 25 million kilometers.
