Support desktop access and tablet device; include configurators and back office functionality.
How we solved the problem
We entered the project after a prototype version and focused on rapid development and adjustment, based on the feedback from restaurants testing the product.
We used Canvas to create an innovative interface for reservation management. We based the back-end on Meteor/MongoDB and the front-end on React. Meteor’s reactivity allowed us to create a fluent experience for the staff, as all inputs were visible in the application with no delay.
With a list of core functionalities ready, we focused on preparing a robust architecture and development process. We set up a Continuous Integration environment. QA process ensured good quality standards. The project was built with the use of a Scrum process, with the addition of fast-track approach and immediate reaction to feature requests.
During the late phases of the project, we focused on optimization and extending the list of tools available for restaurants.
What did we achieve?
Working in close collaboration with the client we built an application with a strong market fit. It has been adopted by hundreds of restaurants in Europe and elsewhere. While the initial development was rapid and we were able to show progress quickly, the partnership between aleno and Vazco has been ongoing.
