As we design platforms and tools with our loved ones in mind, we envision solutions for our wiser selves. As problem solvers, we learn from the past. As progressive thinkers, we hope to refine the future.
THE CHALLENGECovia is a nonprofit based in the Bay Area that provides living communities, programs, and more for seniors. Striving to create a positive experience and cultivate well-being for its members, the organization was looking for operational technology, tools to digitally connect seniors, and safety solutions for its residents.
A Three Pronged Engagement
Under Covia's project "Ella," we helped make strenuous accounting procedures an issue of the past utilizing our expertise in OCR (optical character recognition). We also built an internal invoicing system, leveraging technology to auto-complete previously handwritten accounting processes.
Succeeding a multi-year engagement developing custom operation software for Covia Senior Communities, the organization gave us an opportunity to spin-off a pilot program dedicated to creating AI-powered software to keep seniors safe in their homes: Handlebar.ai.
Built for Google, Amazon, and other voice assistant devices, our app facilitated emergency response for seniors by allowing them to vocally signal for help through these devices.
