Technology has made it easier for us to stay connected with loved ones, but there’s a demographic that may have a harder time adapting to technology: Seniors. Lack of accessibility in a tech-savvy world can create frustration for older people wanting to stay connected with loved ones. Enter The GrandPad: A tablet that was designed with seniors in mind, streamlining processes that can make using certain technologies complicated. The founders of GrandPad have built an IoT-powered solution that leverages programmability.

In this webinar, Scott Lien, Co-Founder and CEO of GrandPad, will share how they set out to create a solution to bridge the tech divide, the difference GrandPad has been able to make, and look ahead to the future. Product managers, developers, and engineers who want to create end-to-end solutions with IoT and Voice will leave this discussion feeling more confident in relying on cellular connectivity for their applications.

What you’ll learn:

  • How did the founders of GrandPad identify the gap in the healthcare technology landscape?
  • What are the solutions they’re leveraging in their tech stack to overcome challenges?
  • How will GrandPad continue to use IoT and voice to continue making a difference for their customers?
