CLIENT Dixons Retail

Advert Vega POS App

Dixons Retail plc is one of Europe's leading specialist electrical retailing groups. They sell consumer electronics, personal computers, domestic appliances, photographic equipment, communication products and other related services.

They trade through over 1,200 physical stores and via their online outlet, spanning 28 countries and employing 36,500 people; they’re the number one market leaders in the UK & Ireland, Nordics and Greece.

When the Dixons Group were developing the Advent Vega Android tablet they wanted a Point of Sales app which will be installed on all in-store demo units. The purpose of the app was to play a promotional video on loop until the screen is touched. The app would then allow the customer to try out the tablet – and when the tablet was left idle for a set period of time, the video would restart again.

The app also has a PIN code 'protected settings' page to allow store staff make alterations to the timeout settings and to enable/disabled video.

Our experience of working with lilHermit was entirely positive, with our project being completed on brief and on schedule. The process went really smoothly; our requirements were met with flexibility and lilHermit were proactive at every stage to ensure everything was delivered as requested. We are really happy with the end result and the great level of service overall.
