Essential Info



KOMP – the one-button computer connecting generations. Smartphones and tablets aren’t suited to everyone. Growing older, our functional abilities change, and it can become harder to use modern communication devices. At the same time, more and more of the contact between families happens through digital mediums, which can lead to some vulnerable groups falling out of the communications cycle. We communicate faster, more often and through more mediums than ever. We have developed KOMP, the one button computer, to make communication between all generations simple. With KOMP your family and friends can share photos, messages, and make video calls. KOMP does not replace physical meetings, but it makes the time between them feel a little shorter. An unlimited number of family members can be invited to share moments through the KOMP app, giving every generation in the family the opportunity to participate. We are continuously improving features, adding widgets and introducing new forms of content that you can share with your loved ones. KOMP is developed with and for seniors (75+) with little to no technological competence. That is why KOMP has a high contrast screen, no touchscreen, a loud audio connection and only one button.
