About the client
Criyagen is a life science company with a mission to deliver low cost, eco-friendly inputs for sustainable agriculture and develop carbon neutral energy means for a better tomorrow.
Criyagen wanted to develop an app to bridge the information gap between the farmers and the scientific developments in the agriculture sector. Through the app, Criyagen also wanted to provide the farmers with a platform where they can discuss crop related problems with scientists and experts. Additionally, they wanted to keep the farmers informed about most optimal farming practices and to provide them a guided crop calendar.
The biggest challenge for us was to make the app work seamlessly in remote villages of the country where high speed internet is not guaranteed all the time. We had to keep in mind that the image exchange between the farmers and scientists through the chat feature in the app did not take up too much data bandwidth. Providing support in 13 Indian languages and yet keeping the app light was another technical challenge for us.
We designed a simple, easy-to-use UI (User Interface) keeping a basic literate farmer in mind. This was done in an Android environment. In the backend we implemented a Laravel PHP based Admin control.
