Any traveler who set foot in the main airports in Romania is familiar with the famous BestValue Duty Free shops. The good news is they went online in June 2016, soon after the mother-company – Millenium Pro Design – realized it’s time for a business upgrade and made partners with Innobyte.
Based on the same concept as the offline stores, www.bestvalue.eu is designed exclusively for travelers who own a plane ticket. In order to enjoy their products, all you have to do is validate your ticket on their website, anytime from the moment you purchased it and until the day you actually fly. Wonder how we made all that possible?

Given the particularity of this project, we decided Sylius is the best fit for the business requirements. We connected BestValue’s platform to the systems of several plane ticket validation providers, such as Amadeus, WizzAir, BlueAir, RyanAir and Tarom.
We linked the platform to their ERP – Microsoft NAV – in order to get a real-time response for orders and stocks.For product information management we built a queue-based messaging protocol between Sylius and their in-house CMS, decoupled for scalability.

The collaboration with BestValue was a challenging experience. We ensured a Continuous Integration environment in order to keep our effort agile and able to respond multiple upgrade sessions, including BC breaks. Using Sylius and its decoupled components helped us reduce the development efforts significantly.
By developing a brand new, full stack BDD (Behavior-driven development), Symfony-based eCommerce platform with a fast-pace we managed to keep a clean and testable codebase.
