Operating an ordinary grocery shop in a buzzling city, he was captured by the ways mobile apps can transform his business for the future. Starting initially with a opencart online store, he wanted to make life much simpler for his customers. This sparked the idea of introducing a mobile app with a product scanning system.

What our client sought?

Mahavir Best Price aimed at becoming the best product and service provider in Aurangabad by 2020. They intended to achieve their goal by leveraging the latest technologies to improve customer experience and satisfaction. So our client’s primary requirement was to integrate a product scanning system into the e-commerce mobile app.

Our client wanted the mobile app to be light and easy to use. He wanted it to offer multiple modes of placing order for the consumer. A consumer should be able to place orders in : the conventional way of searching; the advanced way of scanning codes in the catalogue and through voice search functionality. After studying his requirements our team of developer offered this :

The Solution

Once we identified the exact client necessities, our team of developers proposed a comprehensive app which offers a range of solutions to the consumers. The app took all the dimensions into consideration viz. future growth, rising demand, mobility, order placing and tracking delivery.

The customer uses his credentials to login to the app’s landing page. Here, the latest offers greets him along with the categories of the products that our client offers. The dashboard hosts the wishlist, order tracking, QR scanner, profile, contact us along with terms and conditions. If a customer chooses Rice under Staples categories, then they see all the variants of rice along with the current prices.

We wanted the app to not just operate at the online store, but have utility at their physical grocery store as well. The QR product scanning capability lets the consumer just take a walk around the store and scan on the prowl. Once the scanning is done they can just relax or have fun in the visitor’s lounge.
