Homage – Care Where You Are - Interview with the developer of a fantastic app

Did you have any prior development or coding experience?

Yes, our team of developers all have coding experience. Our CEO and Co-Founder, Gillian Tee who continues to be involved in optimising the app experience also graduated from the University of Melbourne with a Bachelor of Computer Science specialising in Artificial Intelligence.

What was the most challenging aspect of developing mobile app?

We have 3 apps for our key stakeholders - the care owner app for family caregivers, the care professional app for all caregivers as well as the enterprise app for organisations we partner with. Having to concurrently work on the end-to-end workflow design for the 3 apps has been the most challenging aspect of the app development.

The interview answers were arranged by the Homage team. With the Homage mobile app, request and manage care for yourself and your loved ones wherever, whenever. Whether you need therapy, home, nursing, or medical care, help is just a few taps away.

Name a few of your favorite apps and reason you love them.

Canva is one of them. Before Canva, photo editing was often a clunky and tedious process, but Canva consolidated many features and functions into a seamless app - and we felt that there was a similar untapped opportunity to do so in the caregiving space.

How long have you been working on this app?

We’ve been working on the app since Homage’s inception in 2016. Over the past 7 years, our team of developers have continued to improve and refine the UI/UX journey.

What need of the user did you have in mind when developing this app?

For the care owner app [https://apps.apple.com/sg/app/homage-care-where-you-are/id1277541542], we wanted them to have full visibility over the care management of their loved ones and ability to schedule, manage, and monitor care visits anytime, anywhere.

For the care professional app [https://apps.apple.com/sg/app/homage-care-pro/id1277845120 ], our goal was to ensure job-related tasks like applying for care visits and submitting care visit summaries were centralised on the app. By leveraging technology, we could remove inefficiencies such as being bogged down by paperwork and offline administrative matters.

In what way do you think your app is better than similar apps on the market? Please describe in detail what innovation you think you bring and what you are proud of in your app.

Our mission is to care where you are, essentially creating an end-to-end care management flow for both our family caregivers and those providing care.

Our goal is to continue refining our app so that we have a full-stack solution that can help simplify the current fragmented care management journey. A key differentiating factor is that our technology allows us to shortlist and match care recipients with the most suitable care professionals by evaluating 30+ factors (language, skill sets, availability).

This person-fit is vital for rapport building and ease of communication, leading to a successful care visit.

What are your future plans and expected features of the coming new versions of this app?

We’re continually refining the app to improve the overall care experience and make it more intuitive for all our users.

Assuming new users of your app are reading this page. What do you want to ask them to do (contact you about X, Share the app, etc.)?

With Homage, you can request and manage care for yourself and your loved ones wherever, whenever. Whether you need therapy, assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), nursing or medical care, help is just a few taps away.
