Sanlam Reality App

Project Brief

Sanlam Reality is a lifestyle and rewards programme available to a range of Sanlam and Santam clients as well as other participating medical schemes. The loyalty programme required a mobile app to allow members to access their profile and rewards. The app would also provide rich features which would give the ability for members to redeem rewards and make bookings.


As the selected mobile development partner, the project followed an Agile approach using KANBAN to deliver both the iOS and Android mobile apps. React Native was selected as the technology stack with various integrations which were required such as the primary data API, Nu Metro cinema bookings, Uber and a chatbot solution.


Key Features

  • React Native & Redux
  • Restful API integration for data
  • Uber SDK integration to redeem Uber discounts
  • Nu Metro integration for movie bookings
  • ChatBot feature using HeyJude integration as a digital assistant
  • Remote Config to control features remotely
  • Firebase for Analytics and crash reporting
  • Gym access and QR code generator

The Result

It was a successful project that was a collaboration of a number of different stakeholders to deliver a solution for SA’s no.1 rated loyalty rewards programme in the insurance and medical sector.


The Sanlam Reality app allows users to easily login to access their profile and tier status which includes graphical displays. Users can make use of the app features to redeem offers across wellness, entertainment, travel and personal services. Johan Steyn, CTO, Nurun adds, “Bluegrass was always available to respond to any queries from the client and us and went the extra mile in helping us complete the project under considerable odds.”


What our Client says

“The project was handled professionally, and I felt like they became just another extension of our team, helping us work through challenges collaboratively, and with the same passion, we had for the project. I would be more than willing to recommend them for mobile app development services, and look forward to working with them again in the future!”
