The purpose of the app was to enhance buyer experience through notifications about deals and special offers pushed to a shopper's mobile device. The team was also tasked with creating a web-based dashboard and admin console for managing content and analyzing user behavior.
The client required a service provider with practical experience in mobile technologies to develop an iBeacon-enabled mobile app. The solution needed to deliver information about deals and offers to shoppers' mobile devices.
The client was potentially targeting the UK supermarket industry, aiming to add advanced technological features to the traditional sales process.
Softeq developed an iBeacon-enabled mobile application that pushes notifications about deals and special offers available at a given point of sale to users. The alerts are triggered when the user steps into an iBeacon zone.
The team also developed a web-based dashboard and admin console for managing content, iBeacons, application themes (e.g. colors, and logos for app distribution purposes), and deals, as well as viewing statistics and reports.
The app employs user authentication and authorization methods.
The resulting solution consists of an iBeacon-enabled mobile app, a web-based dashboard, and an admin console. After the solution was delivered, the customer engaged Softeq for another project.
