Our messages are always simple and clear.

In partnership with local communities, we developed a simple text-based 48hr weather forecast message that most farmers with low literacy levels can understand.

User-testing results have shown that keywords, rather than icons, are more easily understood by farmers.

Hence, the forecasts use 7 simple  keywords that can be recognized by farmers, making Iska's data driven design  user-centric.

Each message is tailor-made to the farm's location using GPS and can be delivered to any basic mobile phone via SMS.

 
 

At ignitia, we are committed to conducting our service in a socially responsible and ethical manner, which is why all of our current and future profits are directly reinvested into our social mission; to empower intelligent decision making through highly accurate and affordable tropical weather forecasts.
