The Challenge

RVshare aims to enhance the rental experience for both entrepreneurs and renters by effectively matching renters with the ideal RVs. This involves considering a myriad of factors such as availability, proximity, pricing, and relevancy to ensure a seamless match.

Despite dedicating a team to the development of an in-house matching algorithm, RVshare has encountered significant challenges in optimizing its performance. Some of the challenges included:

  • The inability to swiftly integrate actionable insights from data analysis into the algorithm’s development process.

  • Persistent difficulties in elevating the precision and relevance of search results for users.

  • Challenges in creating a solution that efficiently scales with the growing inventory and user base.

The primary metric targeted for improvement is the rate of completed bookings. This entails refining the entire booking funnel—from initial search to final reservation—to maximize conversion and user satisfaction.
