Value DeliveredServing 33 airlines across 15 countries, the product is a widely used solution in the aviation industry and has been recognized with the case study by Microsoft. Our contribution to the client’s success lies in:
Improved source code quality and system architecture design analysisHaving experience of working with the legacy software, we started with code refactoring, documenting and system architecture review. This allowed us to dive deep into the product, gaining useful insights about its inner structure and business logic, as well as indicate possible bottlenecks in its architecture and performance.
Powerful integrations and new features implementationThe AltexSoft team has implemented a vast number of features extending current product capabilities. These include routes management and reporting, data exporting tools, and multiple third-party integrations. For example, to source reliable and up-to-date info about the flights, a direct integration with the data providers was implemented by our team. This information is represented in a convenient form of a Gantt chart or edited by the managers as needed. Another complex feature that we have implemented is the ability to support multiple time zones: it is crucial for planning international flights.
Ongoing design development and alternative UI conceptualizationWhile implementing the new features, our team helped design those features as well to make them an integral part of the product. Apart from developing the interface for new system modules, our team has completely reimagined the app UI, having created a new design concept for the client-side application. The concept is still to be implemented.
Approach and Technical Info
The project involved a dedicated team of 7 engineers, assigned full-time. Additional resources were enlisted part-time to assist with UX and architecture design, enlarging the project team to up to 9 team members.
AltexSoft has been working with Merlot Aero since 2008. The total project duration amounted to over 15 man-years, resulting in 3 major product releases and a number of minor ones.
