Concept
Behind Coinstar

Founded in 1991, Coinstar is a one-of-its-kind concept, which turns all the loose change into cash through its kiosk. Now, they are working with more than 20,000 kiosks in different countries and have already marked a 1 billionth transaction.

Problem
Statement

With multiple kiosks in different regions and a lot of data. An app platform to limit results specific to the region was desired. And to deliver a more personalised experience, they need a functionality that can show results as per the default location of the customer was also needed.

Coinstar Challenge

Technical
Challenges

To plug-in with third parties library with both the platform, Android and iOS, is a task to cut for us. In that scenario, the library compatible with iOS was not working with Android. Additionally, loading time of map location was slow because of the massive number of 20,000 kiosks.

In React Native, maps are managed by a third-party library for both platform iOS and Android, which is not the case with Native apps. So it was difficult to manage the functionality of maps with native apps.

Deliverables on
problem statement

Our developers put a limit on API’s to decrease the loading time of results, and for more for more refined results, we restricted the map locations results to the count of 10 so that the users can only get the relevant results as per their location.
