Background

About 3Sixty

3Sixty is a worldwide leader in global accommodations and B2B technology solutions. As such, its main focus is to meet the demands of the blue chip clients they serve by ensuring a marketplace that delivers a high quality, curated, compliant and efficient accommodation experience.

Impact

3Sixty's triumph in managing global relocations for Amazon earned them the "Innovation of The Year" award. Industry giants embraced their B2B2C solution, fuelling remarkable growth. 

The Problem

For 3Sixty, the main concern was to update their technology stack to allow for a better user experience and enhanced functionalities.

The Challenge

Blending 3Sixty operational expertise and a globally vetted supply chain to deliver on the promise of a high touch, hyper local experience to clients and guests anywhere in the world.
Tech-enabled marketplace (data, product, leads, process automation).
Industry leading self-service offering (create unique B2C offering via B2B process).
Housing as a service.
Vetted and compliant global on-demand inventory.
Eliminate friction of physical interface by offering a streamlined digital experience.
Reimagine and recalibrate the underlying fundamentals on which the merging alternative accommodations industry operates.

Our Goals

Deliver a product that would enhance and improve the already functional 3Sixty resulting in a more robust and scalable software with a well-rounded user experience.

To get the job done, we gather a team of more than 35 people. A group of senior talents that has been working for over 15 years in the IT ecosystem chose a cutting-edge technology stack for the challenge.

The Team

In order to supply the demand that the project required, the team has grown overtime with experts from different backgrounds and expertise. The current line-up is as follows:
