The Challenge_

WhatSalon is a marketplace product for beauty salons. Our system should work directly with their CRM to give the best experience for the end-user.We needed to create an ecosystem in which we can work with as many salonsas possible and put orders directly into their CRMs. Each new salon has another API, and integration complexity grows exponentially. The first integration is not dependent on anything. The second integration is dependant on the first. Integration #6 is dependent on all five integrated before. The process needs to be seamless, and the system needs to be easily extendable. No matter what CRM the salon uses, the application should give the same experience for its users as well as be able to search salon across all possible parameters.
