Custom PWA Application For Plantation Management
Design & Development of Plantation Management Portal for India’s only and world’s leading Zinc-Lead-Silver producer
India's largest and world's second-largest zinc-lead miner, Hindustan Zinc acquires more than 50 years of operation experience in offering top-notch safety and conservation of scarce natural resources; all conducted through technology and innovation.
Holding nearly 78% market share in India's Zinc industry, HZL also stands to be the 6th largest Silver producer globally. The main aspect of the company's flourishing ascent is achieving the movement of sustainability throughout the group companies of Vedanta Limited.
HZL as a part of Vedanta group is benefitted by there wider reach of natural resources brand; functioning on low-cost operations. The professionals empower their associates in driving excellence and innovations for creating value for the stakeholders.
What is their review on Sustainability development? Being the core segment of their business, HZL’s Vedanta group is moving forward with the idea of driving long-term sustainable economic development.
The objective of The Tree Plantation
The company is already flourishing with its higher steps to reaching the sustainability ladder. Making every possible move to safeguarding the environment and spreading awareness. The ideology with HZL Tree Plantation Project purely emphasizes the importance of planting trees both by stakeholders and their employees.
Every individual becomes a part of Vedanta’s effort through a virtual drive for tree plantation.
The trees planted will be native species. And that will be the venture of taking small steps to the conversation of Mother Nature.
All the participants becoming part of the integral project will be certified and acknowledged for their deemed efforts.
Business Challenge -
The process of the Tree Plantation Project needs to be conducted stepwise. HZL needed a platform where people (employees and stakeholders alike) will be registering themselves for the plantation of the sapling. But the registration needs to be approved for the plantation area to commence with the process of planting.
The next process heads to selecting the right area with the right facilities needed for a tree to grow healthy and survive over the years. With that, the professionals associated with the project will lead through the treatment of the soil, add manure, and dig deep for the plantation. And all the maintenance will be done until the tree is headstrong.
While this is all into the process, the planter will be notified of their plant growth at the periodical interval. But all of this could not be done in person. Because of the most obvious reasons. Associating with DGTL, they came across the ideation of web app development functioning on the different factors - User Request, Tracking Growth and managing the plantations. Understanding the loop process, the chain is never-ending. Thus, DGTL Innovations looked up the innovative strategy for the development of HZL's Vedanta Web App.
To curate the structure right the way it was envisioned, the process commenced with the wireframing and development of User Module Functioning followed by Admin Module functioning. With a user-friendly intuitive design, there has been the implementation of the user module, available both on smartphones and on the website.
Throwing light on the user module, there is a specific structure segmented into -
Selecting Options Based on Tree Types and Occasion
Printing of the message for certification
Locational List created by the admin panel will be displayed for selection
A button for notes and remarks followed by the submit button.
Once the process is completed by the user, they will be receiving the confirmation email for the continuation of the process to the Tree Plantation Project.
Once the first section of the user module is completed, which is the development and acceptance of planting a tree, they will be welcome to the new channel of functionality. This has been developed to review and know the status of their planted tree.
The format goes step by step involving first with the request section where the user is listed.
My Trees encapsulates the listing of the planted trees with GeoTags followed by an update on email by the Admin team about the periodical changes. And finally, the tree gallery showcases the different events and growth phases of the tree planted by the planter.
Under the section of the admin panel, the work has been done swiftly for the proper functioning among the team members, facing no loopholes. The module curated is defined as the process conducted by the user. This includes -
Dashboard - Summarizing Actions with a graph view
Pending Plantation Request - Sending to the approval request for the next proceeding
Approved Request - Approving the status and reviewing to update the planting changes
Tracking Update - Pending tracking updates will be reviewed and analyzed
Tree Gallery - Uploading pictures of the trees for the user to view
Reports - Covering all the above-segmented reporting for transparent functioning
Feedbacks - feedback or report date by the user showcased here
Under Access - option to assign/remove admin role to portal users
The main functioning is mostly focused on the dashboard and the pending request section. The former summarizes all the actions taken for approving requests of the user. The Admins reviews the approval and rejection of the plantation request.
Overview Of the Project Flow
The entire functioning of the web and mobile application is crystal clear. Enhancement in technology, programming and customized strategy has made it all the way more efficient to structure the envisioned vision of HZL's sustainability growth for a greener tomorrow. And here is how the outcome of the project works -
Commenced with the user registration through microsite where the user (employee and stakeholders alike) will register themselves and submit a plantation request .
The registered users can subsequently add on new plantation request in next calendar month.
Here the admin panel works by automatically forwarding email notification to the user on status of every new plantation request.
Admins review the approvals and forward the acceptance to the plantation department.
The ground team hereby heads forward with the necessary process of planting trees, adding GeoTags and posting the core details onto the system followed by regular updates.
The user could easily keep on the check of the ongoing process by logging in with his registered mobile no. They will be updated via email and SMS, wherein the growth could be shared on their respective social media.
Benefits of the Project
The web application development by DGTL has taken a new leap to think virtually for a greener tomorrow. A new ray of hope towards sustainability development, the flow of transparent communication and the incorporation of the modern technological input to the final output will make way for achieving the goals right on point as envisioned by HZL.
The development of the application enhanced the efficiency of the functioning on both ends of the Tree Plantation Involvement (User end and Admin Team). The application and associated benedictions have marked a new venture for HZL's ideology of sustainable development to create an impact, not only in the business industry but also among people
A few of the core features of the web portal include:
Manage plantation process and request
Direct social media sharing option

Smart Security Management System
For India’s only and world’s leading Zinc-Lead-Silver producer
Security was a major point of concern for client . The current security progressions were done manually and had more non-digitalized interventions. There was no structure to generate the reports for all security operations and no dashboard to view and analyze the live status of various security processes.
Therefore, the primary business goal was to have an integrated system for all the security-related processes and systems.
DGTL implemented an integrated web application with Native Mobile App for all the automation of security-related processes and systems at client. Some of them include:
Security Incident Reporting Module with CAPA
Security Manpower Deployment
GPS Based Security Patrolling
Security Mock Drill
Security Guard Duty Validation

DGTL Innovations IoT Solution Enhances customer experience and Improves efficiency
DGTL partnered with Terratest for Mobile Apps & IOT Solution . Terratest is an international construction group, a leader in special foundations, soil improvement, micro tunneling and the environmental sector. They offer solutions covering the entire range of geotechnical works, providing comprehensive solutions to geotechnical problems. Terratest is a world leader in the development and manufacturing of equipment to test soil bearing capacity and compaction testing. One of the equipment that Terratest manufactures is lightweight deflectometer. Used by civil engineers to test soil bearing capacity and compaction testing. It is operated in constructions sites like in earthworks, road construction, pipeline construction etc.
The light weight deflectometer, needs to be carried in the field. To record the test measurements from the equipment, engineer needs to carry a mini-computer to record the test data and then download the data on a personal computer to transmit it to the client premises. This whole procedure was adding inefficiency in work and resulted in reduced usability of the equipment. Connector sockets on the deflectometer used to connect with the mini-computer were getting damaged constantly due to harsh operating conditions, resulting in lost working hours and expensive repairs.
Terratest wanted to overcome these challenges to give better user experience to its customers. Realizing that IoT has been proving valuable in driving customer experience and operational efficiency across sectors, Terratest decided to approach DGTL for an optimal solution.
To improve the overall usability of the equipment and efficiency of usage, Bluetooth technology, with its extended range, increased speed, and low power consumption was chosen for deflectometer device. Minicomputer was eventually replaced by mobile devices Very intuitive user interface via mobile device (Mobile App) resulted in huge advantage on the construction site because the measuring computer was not needed next to the mechanics. No physical wires and no physical connections ensured that equipment was not damaged during operations.
With the help of the mobile app the field personnel can now
1. Carry out test measurements without the need to carry a bulky mini-computer
2. Better manage the test measurement data for multiple customers
3. Generate test report and email to stakeholders immediately from the field.
4. Import old test records in the mobile app using WIFI-Enabled USB drive.
TERRATEST Mobile App is available for both Android and iOS platform.
Mobile app developed by DGTL improved the overall user experience in terms of equipment usage and the compactness of the equipment to be carried to the field. Communicating the result data is easier as the required documents/data can now be emailed from within the app, so better and faster analysis and reporting is now possible. Test measurement from the equipment can now be better managed as tests can be identified specific to customer profile. The new mobile app improved the overall efficiency of the engineer using the deflectometer. This app and associated benefits have helped TERRATEST stay ahead of the competition and continue its dominance in the construction space.
