5Clicks iOS App
Saritasa is pleased to announce the release of 5Clicks iOS App, a textile application built for iPhone and iPad devices. In the fabric industry, a mobile application was needed to provide better methods of organizing and facilitating the purchasing of swatches from vendors and distributors nationwide. Our team of developers worked with Momentum Textiles to develop an image-rich application system that would allow their clients to search, browse and purchase with ease.
- Textile Selections: Within in the application, a user can select the manufacturer, fabric application, furniture model, grade of fabric, length of fabric, and even the total number of furniture pieces they are shopping for. Once that information has been gathered, the SKUs are given to the user. SKU, or Stock Keeping Unit, is a way for manufacturers and vendors to manage an accurate count on what they have in their inventory. The pieces on hand that fit the description that was input by the user become visible as a thumbnail in the app. There is also a Refine Search option, with selections available in Type, Style, and Color. A strong benefit of the 5Clicks app is all fabrics are pre-approved, in stock and updated in real-time.
- API Integration: Before the iOS app was created, the client had an existing web application in place that operated similarly. Our developers integrated the existing API from the web application to the iOS app. With the client’s API already in place, our developers worked with the current UI (user interface) and design. They also assisted in programming the product specs, the shopping cart, and shipping information to flow smoothly and maintain secure information.
- Objective C Language: As experts in Objective C programming, Apple’s native language for iOS development, our development team delivered a finished 5Clicks app that is both advanced in functionality and user friendly. We worked through a collaborative effort with the client during the entire project; they provided designs and the API, and our team developed the application. Working from a consultative approach creates projects that run smoothly and a product solution that the client is very happy with.
The 5Clicks iOS App is available for download in the iTunes store.
