Is It Possible To Use On-Demand Services Like Uber Without Smartphone?

Good News for Senior Citizens!

An Innovative Idea by GoGoGrandparents

Smartphones are the need of the hour and have become an important part of today’s fast-paced world, but the matter of concern is that smartphones are still a challenge for seniors. It is not easy for elders to understand the latest apps and features. Hence, they avoid using smartphones and are still stuck with the black and white phone. Keeping this issue in consideration, GoGoGrandparents found an innovative solution to make elders enjoy the on-demand services like Uber without using smartphones.

How GoGoGrandparents Work?

GoGoGrandparents offers a unique service that uses an automated system to arrange all the Uber ride requests. Initially, one has to share its credits and venue details to an operator and then use an automated system to select a pickup location. Press 1 for pickup from home. If you have used the service in past and you want to get picked from the same location where you were dropped during the last ride then press 2. If you want to choose any other location, then press 0 and speak to an operator. Moreover, GoGoGrandparents charge only $2.50 per ride on average.

Future Plans of GoGoGrandparents

GoGoGrandparents is planning to offer more convenient services to the customers including access to other on-demand apps and services like Instacrat, Postmates, caregiving services, and even a home maintenance service like Handy. These services will prove to be very beneficial to the company in terms of revenue.

Additionally, GoGoGrandparents will also allow you to send a postcard to your dear one explaining about the service.
