Questions of service providers
Why should service providers use the FairCare platform? What benefit do they have?
Service providers can reach additional customers for their organisations. Furthermore, they can present their organisation on the FairCare account which is partly public accessible. The users of the FairCare platform (older adults, relatives, …) can search for an appropriate service on the platform via the search function or also by browsing the different categories. It’ also possible to make a request directly with only a few information, which will go through the so-called ‘matching process’. By the matching, automatically the appropriate services for the requester will be found.
Due to the matching between need and service, customers can find services and also service providers better and send out requests to them via the platform. The service providers can send out their offer via e-mail or directly via the platform to the customers. Thus, a fast offering is possible. Moreover the requester can also send a message at the same time to communicate details regarding the desired service. If a service provider have still open questions he also can send a message to the requester. The relatives of the older adults also can make the announcements for their relatives.
