For this we have used the base architecture based on Panel microservices, offering solidity, maintainability, flexibility and agility in the platform's time to market. The services of Amazon Web Services have also been used to have a scalable infrastructure in resources and costs that facilitates the management of video content, and a CDN (Content Delivery Network) server to serve content as quickly as possible to users. users.

For the web portal, all the defined functionalities were developed under strict UX/UI usability criteria for both desktop and mobile, generating both visual and functional impact for the user. To do this, the buyer persona was defined, the competition was analyzed and the entire development was aligned with the aesthetic and branding requirements of the brand.

For the backoffice of the BooTravels platform, a management area has been developed for Suppliers from where they can manage their own video content that will subsequently be published as experiences on the BooTravels website. Likewise, the platform administration area was developed, from where the BooTravels team will be able to manage all the information related to the experiences website (sections, subsections, areas...).
