The purpose of digitalization of Agri Services at PPL is to serve the farmers' our primary customers effectively, and boost the performance of agriculture sector in the country. PPL's journey towards digitalization in Agri Services started with an idea of creating a digital ecosystem by developing in-house portals and applications, creating synergies through collaboration with the external digital partners.
fertiliser industry has also been a part of this change, starting from the implementation of mFMS (Mobile based Fertiliser Monitoring System), to enable Direct Benefit Transfer by capturing fertiliser movements and sale up to farmer level through POS (Point of Sale) devices. Also, with the use of social media for promotion and relationship building becoming popular, using customer data to draw insights for business process optimisation, AI (Artifi cial Intelligence) and ML (Machine Learning) based technologies like “Chat-Bots” and “Robotic Process Automation” are getting established.
