Inspirato has transformed their mobile app experience, ending the age of the monolithic app and creating one of today’s most innovative rental apps built on APIs. Walking away from the concept of an ESB, they decided to partner with Cloud Elements, which offered no overhead in running the integration platform.
The integration development team kicked off the initiative with a workshop led by Cloud Elements senior product developers. The workshop created user stories that addressed specific pain points and directly aligned with business objectives. The primary objective was to aggregate all the property data into one centralized location. The end deliverable was to expose a new app granting property access to all employees.
“It would not have been possible to create a mobile app without the Cloud Elements API integrations,” shares Adam Bauman, Director of Business Applications.
"One really specific, and exciting success we’ve seen, is the ease in creating trip proposals for our members. Our teams have access to up-to-date information and are able to share and sync data at the same time. The time is takes to create a trip proposal has been cut in half, at least!"
“It would have taken 2-3 times as long to get to market without Cloud Elements. We would have had a steep learning curve, and potentially required additional manpower, to accomplish what we did with Cloud Elements.”
