Bed and Breakfast Booking System

Industry: 
Travel and Tours
Application type (Services): 
Content Management System

Our client, a US based entrepreneur, was looking for a solution that would allow travelers to search for bed and breakfast (B&B) establishments in the US and book them online. In addition, travelers were to be provided with the means to connect with and share their experiences at various B&B establishments with others. Icreon has developed the solution on Joomla (for the front-end) and Bug Hotel Reservation system (for handling the listing and booking process).

Recommendations

Outsourcing web development efforts can yield drastically different results depending on who you partner with. In the end, success depends on so many factors far beyond code development itself - strong project management skills, the ability to balance a strategic vision and end user needs with technical realities, discipline in execution, steady productivity, honesty, and a positive attitude in dealing with unexpected challenges and changes to name a few. I've found that those who can consistently deliver on these key attributes are rare.
