Our Solution

XAM was engaged to create a project blueprint and co-develop the right digital platform with additional features using Xamarin.

The process included on-site consultation, joint on-site development and testing. The solution covered staff orientation and staff training, as well as in-store stock and pricing.

XAM successfully worked with the Kmart team on-site over an 18-month period to implement the new technology and assisted with internal training across all stores to ensure that Kmart employees were familiar with the new technology.

Application design and development

The Outcome

XAM’s design and build of the interface for Kmart resulted in a new application that was familiar and engaging. The Portable Data Terminal built with Xamarin has transformed operational functions, increasing employee and customer satisfaction.

In just 12 months, XAM helped Kmart improve its everyday workflow and increase its operational efficiencies by 200%.

XAM’s efficient, functional and technically excellent digital solution has boosted Kmart’s resilience and trust and enhanced the store’s place as a leader within the competitive Australian retail marketplace.
