How Neos made the difference
The business challenge was not only to develop a modern state-of-the-art web design, but also to create a rock solid basis for all brands and hotel sites, which can be maintained by the central marketing and also by the local hotel managers. This requirement assumes a highly user-friendly interface for editors. Not only the usability aspect but also the cutting-edge technology based on the PHP framework Flow, convinced our client to decide on the open source Content Application Platform Neos.
Content dimensions is one of the most intensely used features, having a total of seven different languages.
Synchronized 3rd party content
Detailed hotel information such as address, contact details, number of rooms or hotel equipment and packages are maintained centrally in the clients in-house booking system and is always in sync with Neos via REST interface.
Due to the extensible Neos standards, it was possible to integrate a custom backend module for XLIFF based translations which can be maintained via the Neos interface.
„To conquer the hotel market of tomorrow you need courage and pioneering spirit. Therefore, we decided to use Neos as an early adopter. The state of the art approach and the future-oriented technology were the main factors in our decision-making process. We believe in Neos, that’s why we decided to support the core team to play an active role for the future of Neos.“
