Challenges

Pokolm as a producer offering a very wide range of products and distributing its products all over the world, needed a solution that would make it easier for the company's clients to search for needed items and calculate operational data.

The company needed a team that would create a new version of the application for Android and IOS operating systems and implement the necessary modifications.

Technologies

Xamarin

is a technology that allows you to create native Android / iOS applications using C # and the .NET platform. By using this technology, approximately 80% of the application code between the platforms is shared. This means that the programmer does not have to write a separate application for Android and iOS, which shortens the project duration and its costs. Xamarin also allows you to easily develop application functionality in the future.

MvvmCross

is a framework specifically developed for Xamarin and the mobile ecosystem. It supports Xamarin.iOS, Xamarin.Android, Xamarin.Mac, Xamarin.Forms, Universal Windows Platform (UWP) and Windows Presentation Framework (WPF)

SQLite

is a software library that provides a relational database management system. The "Lite" in the SQLite name means a small weight for configuration, database administration and the required resource.

Summary

The new version of the POKOLM application created for the project meets all the client's goals and expectations. The solution makes it easier for the company's clients to search products from a wide range of over 3300 items offered by the manufacturer. The application also allows you to create operational data calculations. The system works well on devices that support the Andorid and IOS systems. The technologies used in the project allow easy extension of the application in the future.
