About The Client
Savvee is an innovative mobile payment solutions and mobile-commerce marketplace rolled into one started in early 2014. Their tagline is “Be Spontaneous. Be Savvee.” With the Savvee mobile app, the user can purchase a Savvee powered product very conveniently when he or she sees it in an advertisement whether that is through a Savvee supported video, sound or QR code.
Merchants can list their products or services on Savvee for free and instantly have e-commerce and m-commerce. Savvee takes care of all the cost and hassle involved in ensuring a secure and streamlined payment system. Customers enjoy the convenience and peace of mind by avoiding having to repeatedly enter their credit-card details in multiple websites. Savvee’s Merchant Portal allows merchants a seamless sign-up experience and direct control over the listing of their products, including a customized virtual shop-front.
Savvee offers the elegant solution of having an image watermark which is invisible to the consumer, but detectable by the Savvee App. Savvee eliminates queues at traditional Points of Sales counters and free up the time of customer service staff to engage customers in more meaningful ways. It can also be used to run innovative marketing campaigns to distribute samples to those who have an interest. A merchant can affix a Savvee QR code to the sample with a special time-limited offer to allow the sample recipient to conveniently make a purchase.
In short, Savvee pushes the boundaries of advertisements and turn audio, print or video advertisements into spontaneous points of sale using digital watermarks and QR codes.
How Savvee Works
The Savvee team already has a MVP client side app in iOS and would like to further enhance their Merchant Portal, expand their client app functionality coverage, widen user base with other platforms and improve overall merchant experience. Challenge accepted! By RobustTechHouse, a leading web & mobile app development company in Singapore focusing on ECommerce, Mobile-Commerce and Financial Technology (FinTech).
First, we started by analysing their requirements and existing platforms. We then enhanced their existing RubyOnRails platform for their client webfront and merchant portal. Based on their requirements, we implemented more functionality on their iOS client side app and also built the Android client side app. To improve merchants’ experience with completing transactions, we introduced a whole new Merchant side app in iOS and Android that also works with QR code scanning. The new platforms were rolled out in July 2014.
