SUPERMAXI THE CHALLENGE

THE SOLUTION

During the first quarter of 2013, Corporación Favorita, the biggest retailer in Ecuador and one of the largest retailers in Latin America, was looking for a partner to design and develop their mobile strategy.

The Shopping Assistant application for Supermaxi was the first mobile application released. Supermaxi, the most popular supermarket chain in Ecuador, is the main brand of Corporación Favorita.

Corporación Favorita was looking for quality, efficiency, subject matter expertise, and fresh ideas for reaching more customers through the implementation of their mobile strategy. By mid 2013, Devsu was selected among various important mobile development companies as their partner to develop and implement the company’s mobile strategy.

The application was developed to reach the three most popular smartphone platforms in Ecuador: Android, iPhone, and BlackBerry.

Since then, Devsu has been working closely with the corporation’s marketing team not only to develop high-quality mobile applications but also to provide support and ideas to increase their market share by providing their clients with amazing mobile tools that increase their engagement with Corporación Favorita’s brands.

Devsu provided all the expertise and guidance to create an engaging and clean user experience for each of the abovementioned mobile platforms. Devsu’s user interface experts worked together with the client in order to create a modern, easy to use, and useful application, always following best practices and the guidelines defined for each of the operating systems. After the functionalities and user experience were designed, Devsu’s development team built a native application for each OS, ensuring maximum performance and usability.

CUSTOM WEB APPLICATIONS

AMP  CUSTOM SHOP THE CHALLENGE Auto Meter Products Inc., a leading company on automotive instrumentation and solutions, deemed it necessary to reach their market directly through an engaging solution for car enthusiasts who wanted to create customized gauges. Auto Meter needed a tool to allow their clients to customize and order gauges with any combination of colors, materials, fonts, and textures. The process of ordering had to be integrated into their production system so they could quickly manufacture the user created gauges and deliver them worldwide. Additionally, the platform had to be flexible, allowing them to configure different pricing for every option and to configure new materials, models, and colors to continuously update their product offering.

THE SOLUTION Devsu developed a powerful and easy to use website that allows users to create and order their own customized gauges with just a few clicks. Built over Drupal, some of its features include a secure e-commerce platform, an easy to use CMS, integration with UPS for order tracking, and displaying of information that allows their manufacturing process to rapidly produce and deliver the custom gauges.


MAIN FEATURES

CMS built on top of Drupal

Integrated e-commerce platform

Gauges customization module

THE  RESULTS Immediately after launching in November 2011, the AutoMeterCustomShop.com website helped Auto Meter Products Inc. to dramatically increase the sales of custom gauges to their customers. In just a few months, the initial investment for this Web application was recovered.

SALES INCREASED

The cost of selling the gauges has reduced significantly since the user does all the customization, and the whole process to get this information is now automated. With the new Web application, there is no need for extra overhead to go through the parts and accessories required to build a custom gauge. AutoMeterCustomShop.com continues to offer new gauge options, and it is the only known platform that allows clients to buy this type of product with such a high level of customization, making Auto Meter the absolute leader in this vertical market.
