Laravel - All you need & nothing you don't
First Light Travel already had an excellent internal booking system - but it was just that - for internal use only. FLT stakeholders saw an opportunity to streamline the tour booking process by bringing 3rd party vendors and customers into the workflow.
By creating a web based application in Laravel, Communica could sync tour and customer data from First Light Travel's internal systems and expose it online to 3rd party vendors or the customer (in direct transaction cases).
This innovation could drastically reduce backwards and forwards communication and largely automate payment stages.
Laravel was a great fit for this use case because:
Feature rich content creation and editing would never be an important aspect. Once the booking workflow was set up, it would largely be left alone to do its job so we didn't require a full blown CMS.
However, the ability to login and manage bookings was critical. Thankfully, due to Laravel's full ecosystem of products we were able to plugin and configure Nova (Laravel's administration panel) making short work of creating an admin interface.
Lastly, the bulk of this project consisted of integrating systems - Windcave's secure payment gateway, Xero's accounting system and FLT's own internal booking system. Easing backend development like is Laravel's speciality - so an easy decision was made!
