Boise-based MATRAEX to Develop New Group Sales Application for Bogus Basin

12 June 2018 (Boise, Id.) — Matraex, Inc. (https://www.matraex.com), a Boise-based software and application development company, announced its most recent project with Bogus Basin Recreational Association, Inc. (https://www.bogusbasin.org) to develop a custom website application for Bogus Basin’s Life Sports and School Night programs. The website application will help Bogus Basin coordinate and manage school group functions. The project is expected to be completed in September 2018 in anticipation of the 2018-19 ski season.

“We are thrilled Bogus Basin selected us to help streamline their processes as they move forward in their quest to be one of Boise’s premier winter and summer group destinations,” said Michael Blood, President of Matraex, Inc.

According to Molly Myers, Group Sales and Event Coordinator at Bogus Basin, the website and application will replace a legacy application they have used for more than 15-years. The new site will update and streamline the booking process by providing a single repository for group information and eliminating multiple communication channels where mistakes can occur. In addition, it will ensure that information flows to the correct departments for accurate fulfillment of each group’s needs.

“Having a streamlined system that’s uniquely tailored to our needs is very appealing,” said Myers. “Anything that supports a fun and efficient visit to Bogus Basin in the long run aids in our goal of making lifelong skiers and snowboarders.”

School groups that participate in Bogus Basin’s Life Sports or School Night must provide a lot of information about the students when booking, including:

  • Group size
  • Age, height, weight and shoe size of each participant to ensure sufficient, well-fitting rental equipment
  • Ski ability levels for each group member so that appropriate ski instructors are available
  • Special needs or requests

The website application will have additional benefits for Bogus Basin, including the ability to track, process and report financial information for internal use.

Matraex’s work with Bogus Basin will also incorporate other group offerings, such as bookings for the new “Glade Runner Mountain Coaster” attraction and other “Fun Zone” activities.

The Matraex website app is projected to go “live” in September 2018, just in time for schools and other groups to book their group ski trips for the 2018-19 ski season.
