Barcode Scanning App
E-Commerce development of barcode scanning application.
The Customer is the owner of an American business for selling printers and other technical equipment. He already has an e-commerce Magento platform, where users can buy products online. Some people prefer to make orders sitting at home and other people give preference to a personal visit to the shop. Hence, the Customer decided to simplify the process of purchasing printers for those clients, who attend his stores physically. The main goal is development of the software that will give an overview of the goods and will reduce personal interaction with the consultants. For this reason, the Customer requested the realization of a mobile application for shop visitors. The barcode scanning app had to be available for installation on mobile devices and tablets and should be functional on iOS and Android. In general Software development process took 1,5 months. The Chudovo development team connected the implemented part to an existing backend that utilizes XML.
The app has an option of scanning barcodes as well as QR codes of the products. Scanning of information is performed in real-time using the iOS or Android camera. After acquiring an image, the software starts the decoding process. As a result, the application recognizes a product and puts it into the shopping cart for sale. During this step, the user may either continue shopping and adding other products to the basket or proceed to the checkout process. By clicking on the product mobile application shows all technical information and printer characteristics. Software developers added the functionality of a favorites list. So the visitor can save a product as his favorite and buy it later. In addition to the described features, the user can adjust the quantity of the items for purchasing or remove the products from the shopping cart. By changing the quantity field the pricing overview is adjusted accordingly.
Checkout functionality is foreseen for quick purchases. On the one hand, users can scan the barcode or QR code and review the technical characteristics of the product. On the other hand, they can pay for it online asap and take the purchased printer. Cybersource is a credit card payment system and it is often integrated in e-commerce projects. Implemented mobile application using Cybersource for payments. All transactions and operations are handled on the Magento server according to the requirements. Chudovo as an engineering company has provided the mobile application with all requested functionality and at the agreed terms.
