The mission of the Ace mobile developer is to design, build, and deliver mobile apps targeted for both the Ace consumer and the Ace Hardware Retailer community. Typically, Xamarin will be utilized as the development environment. The apps will be built via a partnership established between IT and Ace Business Partners, with the potential use of external 3rd party development partners as well. The applications themselves are targeted to not only deliver on the "helpfulness" promise to the Ace consumer, but to increase the operational efficiencies of our Ace Retailers via the many in-store functions performed that lend themselves to delivery via mobile.
