GROUP 1 – MAIDEASY
Description of Product/ Service/ Innovation:
MaidEasy is an app designed to help facilitate the dissimilation of information regarding different kinds of welfare, to the maids or foreign domestic workers. This app aims to deliver quick and essential piece of information to the workers in order to safeguard their rights.
Foreign Domestic Worker
The Singapore Government
What Stakeholder Need Does It Address?
The foreign domestic worker is our first priority stakeholder. The other stakeholders are the employers. The tech companies and the Singapore government are the stake holders in making of the app. We are trying to minimize language barrier between employers and their domestic helpers by creating a learning application where foreign domestic workers can use to learn Singapore’s local dialect. We want to provide a platform where the workers can also enhance their skills. Through those features, we are meeting the needs of the workers (to understand their employer) and the employers (to be understood by their employee). Through this application, foreign domestic workers can also seek for helps such as contacts to local NGOs and legal helps. We also plan to provide the maids with a forum within which they can contact each other and maintain a sense of community.
How Does It Build on existing Technology/Processes?
The app builds on the existing large app store and its market share. It makes easy the bulky and lengthy information on welfare into easy to use app.
Your Group’s Pledge
