App for Auchan customers in Russia
We have developed the first mobile application for Russian buyers of the Auchan network. It is much easier and faster now to plan your shopping and buy needed goods. Find out the price of each item on the shelf using self-scanning "Auchan Scan", and pay for purchases with the built-in payment system "Auchan Pay”.
hours of development
We have developed a convenient mobile tool that allows Auchan to reduce the number of queues and increase traffic in stores. Before the start of the project, the client had no experience in integrating mobile products, so the team had to find a compromise between business wishes and users’ needs 👌.
In this project we did:
Cross Platform Development
Auchan app for iOS and Android is written on Xamarin—an SDK for cross-platform development. Xamarin applications are developed using native controls so they look and behave as a user of a specific operating system expects.
The architecture based on MVVM allowed to localize 38% of the code in the library common for both platforms. The percentage of the total code in the CI is 95%. The unification of business logic has helped to increase the stability of the application and to reduce the number of bugs. A single development team easily solves issues for both iOS and Android using one programming language and IDE.
19 categories of goods and more than 50 000 items are available to the user. Each product has a detailed description. In the application, you can arrange delivery or order goods for pickup.
We are working on a complex infrastructure project — developing Auchan Pay payment tool and other features. We cooperate with other contractors on the part of the client. For effective communication, we regularly hold workshops where we discuss architectural solutions together. We save time and share knowledge.
The buyers can find out the price of each product and add it to the basket for later payment through the application in one second. They just have to scan the item barcode.
