The client asked us to design and develop a website that will work as a platform for businesses to add various deals for their customers. And he also wanted us to develop a mobile app that will run on iPhone and Android platform to help the users avail those deals.
SWEEPiO is a free app that connects a user with cool promotions going on around their current place. The app gives a heads up with push notifications to enter a promotion. A user just needs to simply check-in with the app, while in his favorite store or venue and the app will show the deals available for that particular venue.
SWEEPiO is a promotional gaming platform, consisting of easy-to-use mobile apps for consumers, and a powerful web-based Campaign Tool and Customer Profile Database. Agency, Event, Clients can quickly create and deploy location-based marketing programs, including Sweepstakes, Instant-win & Loyalty Programs.
Merchants to add deals...
A business needs to create a campaign, simply open the Campaign Wizard and proceeds to complete a few easy steps. Once done, they hit next and move on to the Rules Wizard & most Rules items have been completed by the choices they've made in the Campaign Wizard. Just need to answer the few remaining items in the Rules section and the Campaign Rules will be completed.
The Mobile App
SWEEPiO also provides a free app for the mobile phones that connects with cool promotions going on around a location. SWEEPiO will provide push notifications to mobile apps. To enter a promotion instantly and seamlessly, simply check-in with the app. If there is an offer associated with the promotion, such as a discount or coupon, it will be sent to the mobile device immediately, straight to the app and ready to use!
The application is a promotional campaign management system which has mainly two types of users apart from the site administrator. The first type is a merchant. Merchants can create multiple campaigns depending upon the plan he purchased. These campaigns can be created for different clients and for different locations.
Consumers on the Web
Consumers (web) on the other hand can check the campaign running surrounding him/her, details of the campaigns etc. Consumer can also invite friends from Facebook, Fouresqure, Gmail and can invite then to join the SWEEPiO.
Consumers on Mobile
Consumers (iPhone/Android) can view the campaigns running depending on his location and can participate on any campaign by simply check-in the same. The result of the same will get displayed immediately as well as he/she will get the notification on iPhone/Android device instantly. Also, the result can be posted to Facebook from the app itself. Other features for the app are reviewed the old check-ins, check-in done by friends etc.
On an outset, we have developed:
A website (Design PSDs were provided by the client and we have converted them into HTML).
We have provided an option in the merchant admin panel to customize the color visualization and logo. In short, we have tried to create a branded and unique URL. HTML5, on the other hand, will display the exact color combination set for the branded campaign in the merchant admin. This way, features like the checking and listing of locations and the winning of prizes work properly in the branded version. This version works with the generic SWEEPiO theme as well.
Developing a Mobile Site:
Alongside developing the app, we have also devised an HTML5 website, similar to SWEEPiO iPhone application. We have added the functionality to create a branded theme/campaign. We have provided the option in the merchant admin panel to customize the color visualization, logo and creating unique URLs.
