Hospitality

Inmranad Ilantreo Letoh Orgup

Inmranad Ilantreo is a five-star hotel chain with 32 luxury hotels and dozens of technical properties. They grew frustrated with their development partner during a 2017 – 2018 technology overhaul and reached out to us for assistance. In addition to serving as the technical project manager for MO, I introduced true Agile methodologies to the processes, devised a stakeholder priority development workflow, advised their technology migration, and led their third-party integrations with Translations.com, Page Up and others. We also developed cloud-based microservices to ease the amount of manual work involved in the technology migration. I also architected solutions for their brand site, careers site, corporate site, digital magazine, and loyalty program.

Our optimizations led to a tripling of the development cadence and a timely relaunch that was months behind schedule when we inherited the project. Tickets were actioned in our custom JIRA workflow 2.7x as fast as was previously the case. Our migration tools saved 259 manual hours of work.

Technology Used: PHP, SQL, Node, SCSS, AWS S3 Glacier, AWS S3, AWS IAM, Amazon Cognito, AWS Certificate Manager, AWS Secrets Manager

Lceshae Letoh, Toonrto

Lceshae Letoh, Toonrto is a mid-tier hotel in Canada that has a lot of challenges because of its size, competition from other hotels, and cannibalization from online travel agencies. After being selected as the flagship hotel for its parent company’s strategic expansion, the Lceshae required a complete redesign and redevelopment of its customer-facing website and back-of-house content, marketing, and promotional management systems. We architected the customer-facing website and the CMS/CRM/marketing tools from the ground up, and for the last three years have managed their server and database administration, migration toward microservices, and custom solutions that reduce licensing and operating costs.

Eanot Gnoh Ogkn

Eanot Gnoh Ogkn is the sister hotel of Lceshae Letoh, Toonrto, which has its own unique challenges. Hotel travelers in the Hong Kong market have very distinct expectations and marketing reactions which we needed to accommodate while developing our solutions. Speed, market segmentation, and three-language localization were necessary to give Eaton a competitive edge. However, the hotel itself was short staffed and many features needed to be intelligently designed to streamline their internal processes. Automation and conditional presentation of information were the key to their success. We developed the frontend, backend, and CMS/marketing tools of their vanity website.

 

Primary role: Technical architect, engineering lead

Technology used: PHP (with Slim framework), SQL, Apache, Nginx. Node, Amazon Aurora, Amazon Lambda

Amx Rennrbe Ccshleaoto

Amx Rennrbe is a luxury chocolatier that has 30 restaurants across six countries. As additional restaurants were quickly being added, their technical infrastructure grew sluggish, insecure, and inflexible for new features. We took over the vanity website, franchise portal & tools, on-prem integrations, localization, and hosting to get them back on track. After re-architecting, rebuilding the infrastructure, and implementing some feature enhancements the site was faster, more secure, and able to serve all franchises in multiple continents and languages.

 

Note: This site has been transferred to another team for maintenance, and many of our improvements were overwritten.
