Desty

Overview

The Desty Travel service, which is the project for the Shopping Minds company, makes it possible for travellers to book a city trip together with accommodation, local transport and unique activities. In addition, travel websites can use the service to offer different travel options by merging different suppliers. In this way, travel websites can put together a complete package holiday, which can then be marketed smartly via data with the Shopping Minds Cloud Data Platform.

Challenge

The real challenge for developers was to connect all services and ensure that they all worked properly. The problem was in the incompatibility of these services, and not all services provided an appropriate reliability level. However, the development team managed to build business logic for each service and connect them. Also, developers had contacted service providers directly when they needed to integrate any service.

Solution

A flexible team with highly experienced key players. An efficient setup of the git-flow and extensive code review practices. The tech leads took responsibility for communicating with service providers and adjusting the APIs provided to the single platform.

The management organised the development process in a way each engineer understood the whole picture of the project and did his/her part responsibly, taking their time for discussing and researching the best solutions.

Technology stack

Go Wombat specializes in Python/Django. We use this technology stack because it allows us to build scalable projects within a short time.

Backend

The backbone of many web applications. Handles business logic on the server side, users, permissions, data access, and much more.

Frontend

It is used for building user interfaces based on UI components. It is widely used by a huge community of developers, so it has a lot of different tools to make a smooth UI.

Database

Data is the core of many applications. The database holds all the data in a structured way. Data access libraries (ORM, usually) allow applications to read and modify data securely and reliably.

Result

The platform works efficiently, and it provides custom-made tours for each customer. Also, our client can adapt this system specifically for each new customer. The product hit the market during the COVID-19 pandemic, while many competitors experienced difficulties. The company has made substantial investments in an innovative product with competitive advantages over existing solutions due to the outdated hospitality industry with a low automation level.

Previously, only the larger companies had such platforms as Desty's new product, but they weren’t affordable for most travel agencies. Desty has changed that, and now any travel agency can purchase and use it — it is a ready-made service for small and mid-sized businesses. The project has a closed cycle of end-to-end sales of travel services

Efficiency, knowledge and responsiveness is what first comes to mind when I think about the Wombat Team. I had very good communication with the project manager and the developers had a great understanding of the project. The project consisted of front end development, and considering the result I will not hesitate hiring them on further various projects. I am pleased to be able to say that I can recommend the Go Wombat Team.

Robert D. Skönblad AnderssonCoop Sverige

We have been using Wombat for outsourcing parts of our development for several months now, and it's been a fully positive experience. The team works fast, they ask the right questions, come up with ideas for solutions and can work both independently and in closer collaboration.

Oleksii Tsvietnov (CTO) FF Group

Vladimir and I have been working together for 5 years already on dozens of various projects. The engineers from Go Wombat Team are experienced and dedicated, they provide decent support efforts and have the sense of efficiency. We've faced a lot of technical challenges during our cooperation on security systems, logistics and traffic management, and data analysis where Vladimir and Co. showed a strong grip over the situation and high level of expertise. I and my colleagues from R&D center like how they fuse agility, applications functionality, and new technologies implementation.
