A product of any kind or nature from any manufacturer, that hopes to be popular with customers and thus automatically bringing in great sells has to consider a way of meeting the various different needs of different kinds of people. These needs should be able to cut across gender, age, nationality, economic status and many more. The Grand Pad Tablet has made age an important consideration to make even as it has adapted the Uber app. Previously the Uber app has been used to increase mobility for people of all ages but presently that is more the case for the senior citizens.
All this has been made possible through the integration of the GranPad tablet with Uber. Thanks to this integration the elderly citizens who had before been limited in their mobility now have easy access to the ridesharing technology at their tips. There are a several ways that the GranPad has adapted the Uber app in order to support a more independent lifestyle. The first way is through the font and icon size. The font is oversized on the app, thus making the options easy to read. This is able to help the user to eliminate the issue of unwittingly setting up in correct appointments and eliminates having buttons or links accidentally clicked due to small type and close icon proximity.
The second way in which the GranPad has adapted the Uber app in order to support a more independent lifestyle is through the pre-set locations. The locations that are regularly used can be pre-set into the app, thus allowing the seniors mistyped addresses and route mistakes. The third way involves the data package that allows one to simply click on a readymade button. Destinations such as offices, doctors, hospitals, therapy locations, and homes of family member can be pre-set as well as social destinations that are visited on a regular basis. It is important to note that the application comes along with a complete data package, which ideally means a Wi-Fi connection is not necessary for the senior to use the app. Rides on the other hand can be requested and drivers can be called at any time without waiting for a signal to be found.
The fourth and final way in which the GranPad has adapted the Uber app in order to support a more independent lifestyle is through the Companion App. The app is basically set up for two reasons, one for increased safety and two for the peace of mind for everyone involved. The app can also be set for the caregiver of the senior in question. This allows the caregiver to manage payment information as well as set locations. She or he can also monitor the ride, verify that a pickup has been made, and be notified when a drop off has occurred. In days gone, becoming a senior meant being limited in activities and mobility, but this is no longer the case. Through the collaboration of GranPad and Uber the limitations for the seniors in terms of activities and mobility is now a thing of the past.
