The solution

The company has launched a safe and secure social community App specifically designed for the population of over 200 million people with special needs living all over the world and their supporting organizations.

The new social App focuses on helping people with special needs create new friendships, learn new skills, have fun, enjoy activities, and communicate in whatever manner they can. There is finally a place for them to express themself – no matter how good they are in reading or writing! They can express themself verbally or not. In the App we speak to each other with video, audio, pictures, small pieces of text and even with pre-set sentences and emojis.

As an organization you can offer a wide range of online touchpoints for your target demographic. You can use video, audio, text, and pictures to provide information that can greatly benefit the users. Having presence within the App will make it easier for you to reach a much larger audience and thereby support so many more people that really need it. The back office is the go-to place for online success with this specific target group.
