Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 12 credits / 18 HE creditsStudent thesis
This thesis examines the experiences and results regarding the development of the web application Cash-on- Arrival, an online currency exchange service where the customer can order their currency exchange ahead of their travel to save money compared to exchanging their money at the time of arrival to their destination. The thesis mainly focuses on answering the research questions raised concerning how a secure and usable web application can be developed as well as how it can save money for travelers.
In order to establish what design and features customers preferred, a market research in the form of a survey and market plan was done in the pre-study phase. Furthermore, the thesis continues with presenting how the implementation of features and solutions were performed. The result of the development is the web application Cash-on-Arrival where focus was on the security and usability of the application. Conclusions drawn were the need for a secure site, with a quick and efficient buying process, to encourage users to utilize the service. The implementation of the currency exchange optimization has not been fully answered.
