About The App

Shopping should be a fun activity that usually involves friends. Yet when shopping online, it’s the opposite, it’s isolate, robotic and generic. Shop n Social is a cross platform social shopping app that enables online shoppers to browse, share, chat, talk and shop online all from one app instead of having to switch between multiple apps. The shopper can shop for anything including travel, fashion, home furnishings and even insurance as our app works on all websites by default so there is nothing for a website owner to do in order to integrate with Shop n Social. It’s also home to influential bloggers, designers, stylists, and shoppers, available to help users with ideas and in finding the perfect look.

HOW IT BEGAN

Back in 2013 when Ajit, a man on the edge, was told by his wife that Shopping Online is boring, he decided to make it a mission to convince his wife that shopping online can be fun. After an elaborate research he discovered that his wife isn’t an exceptional case, and as a result, MallRevolt was born. Almost a year later, co-founders Ajit Gupta (CEO) and Chee Lau (Creative Lead), reworked the design and changed the name to Shop n Social. And has been working with SourceFuse to develop the app…and now, it’s due to launch on the global stage in June 2016!

The Technology

ShopnSocial is built as native tablet app for both iOS and Android using the Microsoft Azure mobile app services SDKs. The backend is built with the super scalable NodeJS Express framework hosted on Microsoft Azure. Real time chat is implemented using the PubNub data stream network. Users can make voice calls while browsing and shopping using WebRTC provided by Temasys.

Coming from a strong IT delivery background, SourceFuse ticked all of the boxes that I sought when selecting an IT partner. Since then, they have not let me down. I found the team at SourceFuse (Management and the Developers) to be dedicated, responsive and honest, always keeping me appraised of progress and the challenges that they inevitably faced. I'm excited to see our tablets apps completed and look forward to strengthening our relationship over the coming years.
