All of them seem to occupy their separate niches yet continue to expand and improve. Hospitality and tourist/travel industry has recommended itself to be one of the most popular presently.

Let us walk you through a few cases of the projects developed and implemented of the Hospitality and Travel/Tourism domain. 

 

ADAPTIVE WEBSITE DEVELOPMENT FOR HOSPITALITY INDUSTRY IN AFRICA

This one has been quite unique as it gave us an opportunity to plunge into the world of the African continent, its hotel networks mainly. Agiliway developed a front-end module for the customer with the JavaScript and VueJS framework, while the backend was ensured by the client himself. Along with the partial website development, we worked on the websites’ existing design improvement. Besides the purely technical tasks, our engineering team added considerably to the user interface design process by making the site look like a recipe book. Technical support together with a good deal of innovation and creativity gave a new life to the project under analyses. What is more, in spite of the client’s vague requirements, we managed to output the product standing up to the expectations of the first.

WEB APPLICATION DEVELOPMENT FOR THE STARTUP TRAVEL

Another project to explore is a Web Application Development for the Startup Travel Agency. The project was to assist the customer to gain its share in the highly competitive market of travel and tourism – related services. On weighing all the existing pros and cons and taking into close consideration the market peculiarities as well as the prospects, we had in our mind to choose the Symphony PHP framework due to its expandability, fast performance, and customization.

Having met the challenges of time pressure (hot season was approaching) and business analysis implementation stage, the Agiliway developers’ team succeeded in ensuring fast time to market web app thus granting the client a real chance to meet the ROI projected. In their turn, the end-users ranked the app as a fast, informative and easy to use one. We achieved our goal by providing our client with the website, which allowed a successful establishment of the travel agency in a long – standing and highly competitive industry.

MOBILE APP DEVELOPMENT FOR A SOCIALLY ORIENTED PROJECT

Mobile App Development for a Socially Oriented Project used to have very clearly formulated requirements. The client wanted to get a mobile application ensuring overall safety and control to everyone traveling on his own. Native iOS application was built with JavaScript while Admin Dashboard was developed with NodeJS and React to manage the users and to configure the project. What is more, we used Apple Map to visualize a roadmap and Twilio as a mobile phone verification system. The application turned out to be very effective and widely used, which serves the highest standard of high-quality development and right implementation.

FUNCTIONALITY AND DESIGN DEVELOPMENT FOR RESTAURANT’S CATERING SERVICE AUTOMATION

Several years ago, we had a very interesting experience in making the restaurant’s catering services completely automated. Starting from buying foodstuffs to processing clients’ orders, our team managed to streamline and facilitate the service through total practice automation completion. The platform’s functionality was to be started from scratch and that served the reason why both front- and back-end development modules were worked out.

Staff organization, menu and orders processing were automated with .Net as back-end development to build modern iOS and Android mobile applications and JavaScript (React) as a front-end. Kanban board was used to visualize and control the progress along with the weekly demo versions creation. Consequently, a smooth and bug-free platform development workflow was assured. We developed a complete project on the hospitality services automation, including design and considerable functionality expansion. The automation process provided allowed the restaurant to rank high thus building a strong image for the establishment. Such wide scope projects let our software company demonstrate its great expertise, firsthand experience and professional engineers to hit new marks and gain ground in the market by demonstrating high-quality end products.

A MOBILE APPLICATION FOR A BOOKING PLATFORM

A Mobile Application for a Booking Platform is the last case study we would like to present our reader with. It started in August 2018 and deals with a mobile app for short-stay rentals development. The core idea the product owner nurtured was to create a highly competitive and user-friendly product to gain its niche on the market of booking services. The project aimed at hotel booking processes automation to facilitate and optimize them to the users’ benefit. Having in mind to cater to the needs of the client and, subsequently, his customers, our engineering team made an enhanced solution to use both front-end and back end techniques with React Native and Ruby on Rails subsequently. New features implementation, as well as the outside API integration, were the key processes to be developed and supported by the techniques mentioned. The booking service is a working one and has quite good rankings on the market. 

Agiliway has been gradually yet perpetually expanding in both its size and capacity. We are quite a young team full of motivation, enthusiasm and considerable knowledge baggage. Every new project is another chance for us to prove our strive for better performance (results) and to demonstrate our capabilities of achieving our aims. Our clients are our main focus, the corporate culture and main strategies are based on this belief. Staying agile and leveraging all the possibilities existing add greatly to our end-product quality. A robust cohesive team of Agiliway is always ready for real business challenges. We are constantly longing for new projects, new ideas and new challenges to serve our client’s satisfaction along with our experience expansion.
