PROJECT CHALLENGES

Super Break has been in operation for over 20 years and wanted to scale up their services to meet the current market and handle the increase in web traffic and the volume of demand. Since their previous application was customized and built on top of a legacy framework, the identification of performance bottle necks in the application proved to be a major challenge.

The lack of application documentation meant that our team had to review the entirety of their code to understand the functionality of various features before they could begin working on solutions to Super Break’s new objectives. The project management team had to work with multiple third party travel APIs and manage technical interactions with their respective teams.

Our Solution

After combing through the existing code and understanding the client’s exact requirements, our developers at Eastern Enterprise worked on troubleshooting critical issues in the current website and worked on building a more scalable web application.

In conjunction with this we studied the mobile app we planned a solution to integrate third party hotel inventory and a flight reservation system. After an impact analysis to determine the various affected modules, Eastern Enterprise developed the appropriate web services to accommodate these third party systems in the new and improved website
