Covid had put a hold on everything! But the Innovation at Carnot Technologies is an exception. We started working remotely but our efficiency was not sacrificed nor our hunger for innovation. This post covers the design journey of one such innovation realized during the lockdown.

Simha Kit, our flagship product, is loved and accepted by the farmers but we stumbled across a challenge. What about the many medium/large sized sugar factories, mills, and agri-business centers that own a fleet of 20–50 tractors?

The challenge was — how can we bring a behavior change with something as simple as fleet management, but to an audience which has never gone beyond excel sheets? Besides the obvious problems of UX and tech in viewing information of 50 tractors in 2G enabled low-end mobile phones, we needed something that showcases complicated information in a seemingly simple way. …

Two farmers discussing, while the Sales rep is seeing a new lead

Do you believe in future prediction using a crystal ball? How about astrology? What if I tell you that you can literally predict if a farmer will be buying a tractor or not in the near future?

We are different. We are modern and we got our modern tool Simha Profiler with us. We don’t have a crystal ball or some of the best astrologers in our team but fortunately, we got our users’ usage insights and some of the best data scientists in our team and the combination of these two is nothing less than a crystal ball 🔮

The existing process of making a tractor sale is lengthy… way too lengthy! We don’t know when was the last time the process was updated! …

Things keep on evolving so does the designing systems. It started back in 1439 when Johannes Gutenberg started with typography and from then designing had come far away.

Designers are in the center now, Back in days if you ask what type of an employee a company is looking for, the answer was Software Engineers, But now every company is looking for User Experience designers.

Design is funny word. Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, If you dig deeper, it’s really how it works.
- Steve Jobs

So what’s the future of design? Artificial intelligence, Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality? …

Old home screen and new home screen

I loved how the Indian Railways had taken an initiative of creating an online app for booking unreserved train tickets and sharing train information, and the app is UTS.

Talking about the app, the app is good but it’s not really user-friendly and I believe it needs to be highly user-friendly as it is used by the huge population of India, and they come from different backgrounds and age groups.

It is in use by 10 million+(according to play store downloads) users and if we see play store reviews it’s kind of above-average and people are happy with it, then what is making it a not so user-friendly app? …

Rating products and services have been part of our life from a long time, it was never systemized but always been there, I mean earlier before buying any services or products we use to ask for reviews and ratings from our friends and relatives who had used those services or products before.

Then the era of the internet came in, anything and everything you can buy online, A market place to buy or sell products or services were not just restricted to a local market, Everything was global, But there was a huge gap between buyers and sellers, as both the buyers and sellers, can’t really see each other or know each other hence it was difficult to trust either one. …
