The whole project was to be built from scratch, which required in-depth research to select the appropriate tech stack and build sound business logic.
The first stage of development process was dedicated to a detailed and well-rounded business analysis. Its was focused on studying market demands with the aim to determine whether Jizo can successfully enter the market and generate sufficient profit for stable operation. Additionally, Business Analysis included an outline of business processes with respect to money flows and relationships with future partners.
The following step essentially covered the negotiation of all business-critical project aspects with the stakeholders in order to shape the overall system architecture and patterns of integration with a multitude of travel service providers.
The final step – and the most labor-intensive one – consisted in developing the entire system functionality. Besides back-end development, it included a custom front-end according to specific requirements of Jizo.
The final solution took the shape of a client-server application, which incorporated GP’s proprietary API Aggregator GP Travel Hub. The Hub was added as the core for handling travel supplier integrations and the main source of data. Part of the solution included dynamic browser caching to ensure easier and faster search under heavy system loads. The architecture puts out search results in less than 3 seconds. GP Solutions also crafted a unique interface, which presented prices and travel offers using 2D Matrix.
