Good Neighbor Pharmacy Tradeshow App

abc_tradeshow_app_hero

Excellis designed and developed a custom iOS application for a client’s customer trade show.  Cheaper to maintain, more accurate, and easier for attendees, the app was developed to replace the antiquated hand-scanners.  The application sends orders directly to the customer’s SAP ECC for invoicing and order management.

UI Design

Our designers knew the interface had to be ultra-simple.  The customer demographic was unlikely to have a lot of experience with smartphones, and had grown accustomed to the slow but easy scanners of the past.  By designing large, bold navigation and limiting text to the most important information, the UI was customized for speed and simplicity.

Development

With 2000 users hitting the application in a single week, this app needed to perform.  So Excellis developers took extra time for the details – like testing and selecting a scanner that would be accurate enough for intense use and a deep product catalog.

Security was also important, since the application would send data directly to SAP ECC on the client’s side.  Excellis developers created a mobile scan signature using the attendee’s name badge and leveraged authentication to the local network to minimize risks.
