Descriptions

Appschef helped Sophie Paris to develop a powerful application that could show the newest product’s catalogues regularly on a smartphone. Catalogue data is uploaded from back-end and product data is fetched through API (Application Programming Interface) provided by client.

Functionally, users can save either product catalogue pages or preferred products to add notes on product catalogue pages. This application helps users to search the nearest outlets with the Business Center (BC) Locator feature, which shows its detail and route to get there.

Our team, which uses agile development methods had developed an application on web for admin and mobile for users. The mobile application can run in offline mode after the catalogue has been downloaded first by users. Both product’s data and catalogue’s favorite pages can be saved in internal memory.

For web application, Appschef developed on top of Ruby version 2.0 and Rails version 4.1. The application runs on top of a CentOS, Apache web server, and PostgreSQL database. On the front-end, the application uses HTML, CSS3, Javascript, and JQuery. For mobile application, Appschef developed on using iOS SDK and Android SDK. For Marketing based push notification, Appschef used Urban Airship third party.
