Indian Farmers Fertilizers Cooperative Limited (IFFCO) is the biggest co-op in India. They are one of the largest manufacturers and marketers of fertilizers. Many of their employees and customers come from a lower economical background and lack formal education.

However, nowadays everyone has a smartphone and IFFCO decided to leverage that along with Oracle Digital Assistant to meet their users where they are.

Without any training required, they can talk to the assistant in their natural language and complete a task. Read the complete article here.
