Enabling a brand new revenue stream with this market-ready, web-based, hotel booking path.
Our client wanted to sell hotel rooms easily through a platform that would allow users to search, book and modify their booking. This engine needed to integrate with multiple inventory systems and existing back office invoicing systems.
The Lola Tech agile team, along with some client-led development teams, conducted a 2 week sprint zero, starting with discovery and story mapping workshops, to understand the customer journey and product vision.
Three development teams were formed and completed 7 two-week sprints to deliver a Minimum Viable Product. Weekly usability testing sessions drove iterations on design and functionality through a single collective backlog - which was continuously refined with the client's product owner. A release roadmap gave visibility to future development.
