“Make Your Shopping Smarter”
Ibeacon is one of the best and unique applications developed by Mindnotix. This application consists of Bluetooth connectivity which helps the user to update details about their shop like deals, offers etc so that when shoppers switch on the Bluetooth inside a shopping mall, they can get all the updates given by the user about their shop. By doing this the revenue of the user can be increased as it makes more shoppers to visit their store. There are various available categories like gastronomy, tourism, clothing, entertainment etc in which user can pick the required category to upload the details.
Our client came up with a requirement to develop an application to provide more effective experience for shoppers who visit shopping malls and have confusions on choosing shop which has more offers and deals. So our client said once a user enters a shopping mall, automatically they should get alerts of best deals and offers from various shops. The client said to develop an application which can be used by all the stores in a shopping mall to update their latest arrivals, offers and deals. So that if a shopper enters the shopping mall, they can get all the information about various store through Bluetooth which can help them to filter and choose the shops.
The challenges mentioned by the client was that it is very difficult for shoppers to choose a shop when they enter a shopping mall to purchase and product and that particular product is available in many shops. It is also challenging for the shop keepers to advertise their daily deals and offers. The concern of our client is that this application should be useful for both shoppers and shop keepers
By gathering the complete requirements from the client, developers checked the feasibility of the project and tested the possibilities to provide the application which can satisfy all the client requirements.
