Apptite’16 by Virtusapolaris


It was an exciting moment for A-TEAM, a team of 3 including final year students, Sumit Mehra, Suvojit Kar and Sudhanshu Kumar Tetarbe, when they took home the 2nd place at the Virtusa Polaris's “Apptite” Hackathon Finals 2016 out of 627 teams across India.

Sumit Mehra and Suvojit Kar were earlier part of the team, who were awarded 2nd runner up in the Inter-college competition “Amazingly Simple Hackathon” conducted by Unilever during March 2016.

In the finals, A-TEAM created a virtual store application, which allows retailers to give information to the customer in a store and also allows customers to navigate within the shopping mall or a store. The idea was to use beacon devices across the stores. As soon as a customer comes within the range of a particular beacon, some useful information pops up as setup by the store manager. The app works offline using Bluetooth. On the other hand, users can also go online for E-Commerce application to buy products and use features like, share button to share the pricing and, product to your near and dear ones, and chat with them as well, searching with exact location and current location for nearby shops. The app also uses sensors like gravity sensors for better experience.

The fight to reach the 2nd position was tough. There were several stages of the competition. The first was the idea submission stage, followed by the solution stage. The third stage was the app submission stage and the final round was the presentation round. 

The team hopes to expand this idea in the future and use it for various applications.
