About the project
With a total project value nearing eight million euros and the involvement of 14 distinct partners, RCK RECEPT spans over a period of three years, making it crucial to the School’s mission. The project’s success would create a deep and enduring impact on both the School and its partners.
RCK RECEPT is an expansive and intricate initiative. Backed by secured funds, its objective is to structure and refine the work organization of the Regional Center of Competence in the hospitality education sector. But its ambition doesn’t end there. It also focuses on the development and roll-out of regular education, adult education, and lifelong learning.
To bring the client’s digital vision to life, Point Jupiter, upon winning a national tender, collaborated closely with the team to comprehend their requirements. A cornerstone of this endeavor was establishing a robust digital footprint, which entailed launching a contemporary, multilingual website, mobile apps for principal platforms, gamification initiatives, and a content production process that seamlessly integrates with a technical SEO strategy
Teamwork makes the dreamwork. And to make this project’s dream a reality, we put together a team of eight Point Jupiter’s professionals: A Project Manager, a Lead Developer, two Senior Developers, a Senior Designer, and a Manual QA Specialist.

With an eye sharper than an eagle, she ensured that no bug could hide in our digital realm. Her dedication meant that every pixel, every feature was tested and refined, safeguarding the quality we promised to deliver.
United by a common goal, this team transformed challenges into digital realities, ensuring Catering School Opatija’s dreams took flight in the digital realm.
The project played a pivotal role in enhancing the online visibility of the Regional Center of Competence, enabling them to effectively educate a wider audience, including students and the general public, about the thriving subsector of hospitality and tourism. The Catering School Opatija faced significant challenges in reaching its intended audience due to its limited online presence.
However, through the development of a state-of-the-art website and a user-friendly mobile application, combined with SEO strategies, this institution now has the opportunity to extend its outreach to a broader target demographic. By leveraging modern technology and optimizing its online presence, it can effortlessly share valuable information, showcase activities, and engage with a diverse range of individuals interested in exploring the exciting opportunities offered by the field of hospitality and tourism.
