This talk will highlight the challenges faced and approaches that the team used to overcome them.
Enchanting Travels is a multi-award-winning company that provides private tailor-made journeys of a lifetime to its customers. A truly global company, their team is a mix of cultures with distinctly individual outlooks and a real passion for travel.
In 2019, Enchanting Travels was acquired by Travelopia, the world’s largest collection of specialist travel brands.
Equal Experts started working with Enchanting Travels after the acquisition. The journey started with carving out a small niche functionality to enhance their current product. The product allows the business to deliver a seamless experience for its guests and is one of the brand’s core Intellectual Property (IP).
As the relationship matured, the team got the budget to build the next version to accelerate the journey. Despite the current COVID-19 related business challenges, the board at Travelopia has decided to fund the product development due to its strategic value.
Equal Experts is responsible for owning the product road map and managing the delivery of custom development.
