1. The market.
Solutions such as GenieConnect®, to address the market for assistive living technologies are only now emerging, and our ageing population continues to create ever increasing demand for these services.
There are two main areas where we predict demand increasing. First is loneliness alleviation (as the number of people over 65 living alone exceeds 4 million, with 25% reporting as lonely or very lonely) through social inclusion. Second is heath and wellbeing monitoring and management to reduce the strain on our health and social care systems, struggling with reduced resources and budgets.
GenieConnect® was designed from its concept, to support these urgent needs.
2. The solution.
The GenieConnect solution has been developed by incorporating the most reliable and best-in-class solutions in robotics, natural language processing, Machine Learning and Customer Experience Management. We have not tried to reinvent already mature solutions, but have focused on developing an exciting new platform integrating these technologies as part of a “managed service” to solve real and growing social care issues.
3. The team.
The founders have over 50 years of combined experience in product and service development and delivery, and are supported by a talented group of professionals on the Board, and externally. We have the full support of our major investor groups, and expect this to continue as we move towards our goal of making social inclusion and remote care available to all who need it.
In the chaos of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the need for services such as GenieConnect® is highlighted even more. We see a rapidly emerging need for solutions supporting self-isolation, remote virtual care, and easy-to-use video communications with carers, friends and family. GenieConnect® provides all of these service elements and more – and as we move through and beyond this pandemic, we expect to see even more demand for these capabilities.
We do hope that you decide to join us on our journey, but whatever your decision, we wish you every success and that you stay safe and well.
