BookingSync grew out of one line of code into a community of 160 investors. In 2014, they raised the first round of investment, more than $1M USD in a fundraising blitz of only 15 days.
BookingSync is a cloud-based vacation rental system that serves as a friend to owners, managers, and agencies during each step of the vacation rental management process. The team developed simple and easy-to-use software that provides two-way synchronization with major booking platforms like Airbnb and booking.com and handles double booking problem.
When BookingSync launched the product, the infrastructure was appropriate, but as the scope of operations grew and the platform gained new features, it began to be insufficient. It became obvious that they needed more scalability. This required a smooth and fail-safe transition towards AWS from legacy servers to build a scalable system and cloud monitoring solution.
Infrastructure is now managed and deployed automatically with Terraform and Chef.
It meets all of the requirements: from deployment, security, maintenance to troubleshooting, monitoring, routing, and network configuration.
We performed seamless migration so their team experienced no interruptions in the workflow process.
We set up monitoring and notifications with a proper escalation hierarchy.
Our consultants investigated workflows and assessed infrastructure and software development processes.
We provide ongoing maintenance and monitoring. Whenever something goes wrong, we are ready to take action immediately.
The whole infrastructure is constantly evolving towards the most optimal solutions available on the market.
We provided detailed developer documentation covering the architecture of the AWS infrastructure.
I liked their proactive attitude at identifying the issues beyond the initial requirements and offering solutions for them. The team draws from their past experience to offer critical insight into technical challenges. That helped them foresee most of the issues and solve them upfront, instead of dealing with the consequences, which saves lots of time and money in the long run.
