Languages of publication
This paper presents the design of universal Service Management Platform − SMP, which facilitates ordering services for senior citizens. Platform design motivation was presented as a tool to increase the chances of elderly people in the independent existence in their own homes. This is due to demographic changes taking place in Europe, the progressive aging of the population and evolving outline of an elderly person. The concept of service distribution based on the M:N model, sharing the customers and service providers database was proposed. Technological barriers and other aspects relating to the SMP platform design and maintenance were specified. Benefits of the platform release on the market, both in the sphere of business and society were presented.
