In the existing eldercare arena in Singapore, the eldercare providers for products and services are 'silos'. This makes it hard for the elderly and their family members to look for products and services as they have to look at different platforms to obtain what they are looking for. Also, there is an increasing need for volunteers and caregivers due to growing aging population. The lack of an efficient and volunteer management platform makes it difficult for the elderly to look for volunteers. It is also hard for volunteers to find elderly who need help.  Therefore, there is a need for a platform that integrates the eldercare services and products. As the adoption rate of mobile increases (iDA, Mobile Penetration Rate), there is demand for mobile enabled services.
