Quartierplus: The first digital platform for senior citizens

Conception and development of an innovative, wide-ranging digital platform aiming to simplify the lives of senior citizens.

Taking the digital platform to new heights

In cooperation with third-party providers, this forward-looking platform offers a wide range of activities, services and information to help senior citizens enjoy their retirement. The broad range of content can be divided into three categories: “Independent living”, “Staying healthy” and “Leisure”. Quartierplus also offers blogs containing fascinating information and an online community for chatting and making new friends. So there is something for everyone.

Technology

The new website was developed using the enterprise CMS Drupal. It is currently running in version 9. The project also includes the marketing automation tool Mautic, used for communications with users and marketing automation.

«Arcmedia combines extensive technological knowledge with an equally thorough understanding of business, which is rare.»

Challenge

The challenge of this project was to conceive and develop something completely new. Senior citizens are a challenging audience because they are not digital natives and need to be guided through the content with a well thought-out user experience and a user design adapted to suit them.

Success

With its simple design adapted to the needs of this group and the integrated functions such as the community, the platform connects senior citizens with people information and services – not just online but in real life too.
