Uniguest’s Ad Feature On BBC Video Series Gives Interesting Look At Tuning Tech To Senior Living Communities

June 28, 2024 by Dave Haynes


Nashville-based Uniguest has for several years now been growing its solutions footprint in a vertical market I see few other companies interested in, despite the demographic information and opportunity staring them in the face.

The company expanded its focus from hotels and resorts to also incorporate senior living communities, offering a range of solutions that include standard digital signage but also extensions to tools like custom apps for tablets and smartphones that have the big icons and simple user experiences sometimes needed by people who are anything but digital natives.

The company has pushed out news this week that its work in a senior living community in Florida is featured in the UK-based BBC’s StoryWorks video series. It is indeed in the BBC online content ecosystem, but that should be qualified by it being paid advertorial, not an editorial piece developed by BBC staffers.

Regardless, it’s an interesting six-minute video doc that provides a rare look at how digital is being integrated into these higher-end communities, which have some of the feel of resort properties (especially when they’re in south coastal Florida).
