Hotwire is a world-leading travel agency that offers discount rates on airline tickets, hotel reservations, car rentals, and more. In order to meet the expectations of travel price-hunters, the Hotwire site features the following components:
- A functional web interface to search, book, and advertise trips based on a particular trip requirement
- Back-end systems to manage deals and other business-related data
- An interface for suppliers to fill in their offers
Rapid growth and market expansion strained the company’s in-house IT resources, while the need for technology upgrades and new architecture solutions continued increasing. Outsourcing the professional services and allowing the core staff to stay focused on critical projects was the obvious solution.
