In June 2018, the Mauritius Commercial Bank held a technology innovation hackathon called InnovApp Challenge. This was the first ever innovation challenge held by the biggest and oldest bank in Mauritius.We worked as a team of 3 to develop a self-checkout app for shoppers named SmartShopper. The app would allow shoppers to create shopping lists and, on arrival at the supermarket, scan products from the shelf as they add it to their cart. When ready, the customer would easily pay for their shopping through mobile money and exit the premises. No more queuing.
