BokaKanot is a startup that provides a powerful white label booking and inventory management system for the outdoor adventure market

We also leveraged the lastest technologies at the time to get as much of a headstart as possible in terms of architecture and future maintainability of code.

This project was developed with Javascript and PHP using the following framworks:
