The Virtual Store was an application that was created as a showcase to be demonstrated on certain events for T-Systems, most notably on the CeBIT and several customer events for T-Systems.
The idea behind it was to have a large poster, where certain products could be “offered”. Customers could then scan QR-Codes which were placed next to the product information with their smartphones, which would immediatly redirect them to the product website where they could order the chosen article.
Each registered customer received a certain number of “points” he could spent on products. Customers were either pre-registered, or they could sign up themselves through a registration website.
The application itself was developed using the Grails framework, which we also evaluated during this project and used it for certain other web projects afterwards.
