Starting pointStarting out as an Internet comparison service for health insurance, comparis.ch
has developed its portfolio from year to year and now offers a wide range of
services not only on the web, but also in terms of mobile applications. To date
users can download several apps from the Comparis website in order to
compare mortgage rates, read about the latest property or used car offerings.
Vision: Comparis Smartshopper appTo simplify the lives of its daily users, Comparis wanted to build a dedicated
app for shoppers. With the help of an integrated barcode scanner and selfmade
templates, consumers are able to create intelligent shopping lists easily
and efficiently. The app not only enables shoppers to find special offers and
deals within Switzerland, but is also able to arrange shopping lists by store
location. Consumers can browse through promotions and offers from popular
Swiss retailers such as: Migros, LeShop, Coop, coop@home, Denner, Volg,
Manor Food, Spar, Aldi, Lidl and others. Additionally, the app lets users access
special product information, locate nearby and open stores, and customize the
retailers they want information about.
Solution: Comparis Smartshopper app with the
Scandit barcode scanning technology
By integrating the Scandit barcode scanning SDK into the new Smartshopper
app, Comparis was able to “bridge” the gap between physical products and
their mobile app. For example, you can just scan the barcode of a yoghurt
container to add it to your shopping list. In the upcoming release, the app
will make it possible to access additional specialized information such as
ingredients, nutrition labeling, country of origin and label of quality.
