About our Client

Client Description: Digital Content Service Provider

Client Location: The Caribbean

Industry: eCommerce

Business Situation

Our client, a provider of content management and advertising services, needed a shopping-network eCommerce mobile app development to empower potential buyers. The app would enable potential buyers to browse shops, categories, and products using their mobile devices and download discount coupons offered by shop owners. This feature-rich app needed to reach a cross-platform target audience of mobile users spread across popular mobile platforms such as iOS, Android, and Blackberry.

Our Solution & Customer Benefits

RhoMobile framework, with its impressive suite of polished tools, was selected for the cross-platform mobile app development. Since there are multiple views that users needed to browse and RhoMobile is the only cross-platform mobile solution on MVC (Model-View-Controller) architecture, it was a perfect fit. The solution also involved integrating an SMS-based payment system. We used one of the latest features of Rhodes to create Native Extensions to interact with device SMS/Text message module. The end result was a full-featured, fast, and intuitive mobile app significantly increasing our client’s time-to-market and target audience coverage and empowering millions of potential buyers across the most popular mobile platforms in the market now.
