Advance Auto Parts mobile application
Advance Auto Parts, Inc. is a Fortune 500 company. The automotive retailer sells aftermarket parts, accessories, and maintenance items to both professional installers and do-it-yourself customers. As of July 13, 2019, Advance operates 4,912 stores and 150 Worldpac branches in the United States and Canada.
Advance Auto Parts needed a technological partner to help them develop their B2C mobile application as a critical part of the company’s ongoing digital transformation initiative.
The Advance Auto Parts mobile app is an always-in-your-pocket, direct connection with customers that provides them with the products, information, and education they want, when and wherever they need it. It aims to deliver an innovative, rave-worthy shopping experience by using emerging technologies and user experiences to help customers solve their automotive problems.
The application allows users to quickly find the right part, check availability online or in store, and easily order parts for pickup or delivery. They can also save vehicles to their virtual garage, find stores near them, view and redeem loyalty programs rewards.
Looking for smooth user experience, highly responsive UI, and great performance, Astea Solutions’s team and Advance Auto Parts chose to build the mobile application with React Native. To provide an interface for the mobile application to communicate a custom API solution on top of the existing e-commerce systems was required. It was built using Cloud native solutions such as AWS API Gateway and AWS Lambda powered with Node.js. These backend services will power all of the B2C applications from Advance Auto Parts including the new and revamped website, which is also being developed with the help of the engineering team from Astea Solutions.
The application for both iOS and Android has been officially launched in March 2020 and has gained a lot of positive feedback. The development continues as new features and functionalities are being introduced.
For its work with AAP, Astea Solutions was awarded with the “Partner of the Quarter” award on August 20, 2020.
