The aim of the project was to design an intuitive and user-friendly mobile application which would help operate and manage the water treatment plants remotely and efficiently. The application is targeted towards the villagers from rural India, who are not much exposed to the digital technologies. The application is to be accessed in remote locations where the internet facilities are unreliable.

1. Manage the business or treatment plants remotely
2. Add or configure sites, and Set the parameters
3. Get site reports, statistics updates and control devices
The mobile application needs to be simple, intuitive and should have minimum learning curve so as to cater to the target audience that has limited awareness about digital technologies.
(To be used in remote Indian locations)
The application should be light in terms of istallation and storage. It should have offline support for the primary features.
Considering the primary user-group that is digitally challegned and is new to smart-phones and touch-screen interfaces, the application was designed so as to have minimum learning curve. The interaction strategy, colour palette as well as the typeface were carefully design so as to ensure maximum productivity and increased the app reach. All the tapable actions were given a single colour (blue) to make it intuitive and easy to learn.
1. Developing visual language that is focused towards productivity and efficiency.
2. Highlighting the important information that needs the most attention to achieve efficiency in operations.
3. Incorporating sufficient contrast across the screens to operate in bright daylight (india)
