Pendo and K4Connect Join Forces to Help Optimize Technology for Seniors
January 19, 2016
At Pendo, we love being in downtown Raleigh and are always looking to support our tech community. When we have the opportunity to do that for a product that actually helps people, it’s totally win-win. That’s why it’s so exciting to partner with K4Connect. K4Connect is a technology integration company which creates solutions that serve and empower older adults and individuals living with disabilities. K4Community integrates the latest in smart technologies into a single responsive system, enabling smarter living environments, healthier lives and fostering family and community engagement for senior living residents. We’re thrilled that our user feedback and analytics software can help K4 create easy to use, person-centered solutions for a group that has been traditionally underserved by technology.
“We could not be more excited to be teaming with K4Connect to help them deliver on their mission to leverage technology to allow millions of seniors to continue to live independent and connected lives. Pendo will help the K4Connect product team better understand how seniors are using their technology and how to continuously improve the experience,” explains Todd Olson, founder and CEO of Pendo. “Our collaboration is a great example of the cooperation and synergy in the Raleigh startup community.”
According to Joan Siefert Rose, President and CEO of the Council for Entrepreneurial Development, “The Triangle is a growing tech industry hub, home to entrepreneurial companies that raised over a billion dollars in 2015. By working together, these innovative companies support each other’s visions of growth and encourage the collaborative culture of our maturing entrepreneurial ecosystem.”
“Technology should be simple, approachable and purposeful,” says F. Scott Moody, co-founder and CEO of K4Connect. “Growing older, or living with a disability, should not mean that we have to forfeit our independence or connection with family and community. That said, it’s critical to design with purpose and to truly understand the needs of those we serve. Todd (Olson) and the team at Pendo have created a great solution that helps us build an engaging product experience for our clients.”
