Waiting in long queues at grocery shops really suck! Isn't there something we can do about it?
What it does
Our app gives user faster checkout options when shopping in-store. This application retains the fun of shopping in-store with the fast checkout convenience of online shopping. When you are shopping for items, you can right away scan those and add them to your cart. After completing the cart, the app generate a QRCode for you. You can directly scan it at the POS to enable payment. Our app provides ease of use, as it does not require login or other hassles of adding items manually.
How we built it
We built a super cool fast android application that uses barcode scanner on your android mobile application. We Built two applications: 1) Rev_UC (Fast Checkout - used for scanning individual items) 2) Rev_UC_POS (Simulation for in store POS scanning)
Challenges we ran into
Running Android Studio and doing the initial configurations for doing the development. Implementing Android UI. Working with a lot of libraries for the QR Reader.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We completed a fully functional mobile app, starting with absolutely 0 knowledge in android development. Kudos to us!!
What we learned
No one in our team had built a mobile app before, or even attended a hackathon. From brainstorming ideas to asking the mentors on what ide to download, we have learnt a lot in the last 24 hours. We all are now pretty comfortable working on Android development.
What's next for FastCheckOut
Short term goal
- Implementing payment system.
- Improving UI
Long term goal: Integrating with Inventory Management System and with the huge Kroger data, bringing in the functionalities for Kroger Card members and going BIG!
