The Application that helps save money
After 6 months from release, we usually ask customers about the financial results of a project to make sure we did our job well
Andersen team has spent more than 280 hours every week on the development of this solution
The aim of the startup is to enable Australian citizens to make savings
Entrepreneurs from Australia launched a startup the idea of which was to develop an application that will compare prices in two largest Australian grocery networks. This application allows comparing prices of all goods available in both grocery stores in real time thus giving the opportunity to choose the cheaper option and hence save money. Since Andersen has solid experience in retail, our company was selected for work on this project.
Having gathered the requirements for the product from the customer, we started a thorough investigation of the stores, the goods of which would be compared in the future app. Particularly, we focused on the assortment of goods, their prices, deals, and discounts. In addition, we studied consumer reviews on both stores to figure out the direction we should follow.
When creating a user interface, we followed the principles of minimalism, simplicity, and attractiveness. Practically, it all was about the following direction: minimalism in colors, buttons, and icons, simple and intuitive navigation, and the use of delicious-looking food images.
We never start working on a software solution without proper planning. No matter how simple the project is, we approach it responsibly to ensure our customer owns the best software product of its kind.
The application of such a type requires the most simple and quick entry. That’s why we chose a standard form and added the possibility to sign-in with Google.
Along with the home page, there are three more tabs: today’s deals, where the user can view deals in both stores, categories of products, and virtual shopping list. The home page also displays the popular goods. Besides, we introduced a search box for the quick search of necessary products, which can be seen on the top-right corner.
Our UX/UI specialists saw about convenient sorting of goods on the platform: on the Categories page, various categories of goods are shown, divided into subcategories - all this to make the search easier. The categories can be viewed as a list or as cards with mouth-watering pictures.
After choosing a category and subcategory, the user can see all the items on offer, with names, images, prices. On the top-right corner of each item card, the name of the store that sells the item is shown.
Since the app compares prices of hundreds of products sold in the largest stores, sorting the goods just by categories and subcategories is not enough. That’s why we implemented several filters. Unlike categories, the filters display the goods not by the type but by other important parameters: producers, allergen-free items, dietary, health star rating.
Clicking on an item card, we go to the page that shows more detailed information about a selected product: brand, description, weight, price, and even reviews. The user can choose the quantity and add the product to the shopping list that can be viewed later in a store.
The main function of the application is the possibility to compare prices of the products offered by two largest stores, and here is how it works: on the product page, the user clicks on the Compare button, and the platform shows all the variants of the selected product with price, weight, and the store so that the consumer can choose the more advantageous variant and thus draft the most budget-friendly shopping list.
Our clients are provided with weekly reports enabling project processes monitoring and goals achievement progress.

The developed solution showed its efficiency in terms of money saving and therefore received approval of Australians and purchasers of these two largest grocery stores in particular. The number of application users exceeded several thousand within the first month. The delivered product promoted the development of the startup, as well as enabled the entrepreneurs to occupy a niche in the Australian market. Moreover, the popularity of the product attracted investors.
