SHANGHAI, July 29, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Dada Group (Nasdaq: DADA) («Dada»), China’s leading local on-demand delivery and retail platform, actively strengthened its efforts on aging-friendly and barrier-free updates of JDDJ’s application, which is included in Shanghai’s official guidance for elderly people. This move is committed to bridging the digital divide for the elderly and the disabled when using Internet, and providing more convenient access to on-demand consumption services.
Shanghai local government recently published the guidance of «Digital Partner Program · How to Use Smart Phones», which aims to address the difficulties encountered by the elderly when using the smartphones. The updates of JDDJ’s application was included in the official guidance to teach the elderly how to use Internet services, such as buying medicine and grocery online.
At the end of last year, China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology issued the Special Action Plan for Aging-friendly and Barrier-Free Updating of Internet Applications, under which JDDJ was selected as one of the first 43 applications and listed in 23 key companies in Shanghai for aging-friendly and barrier-free updating.
«With a strong sense of corporate social responsibility, Dada Group has set up a dedicated team to boost the barrier-free updating project in an effort to meet the needs of special groups for online on-demand consumption,» introduced Zhiping Chen, General Manager of Public Affairs Department of Dada Group. JDDJ’s aging-friendly updates completed the beta test in May this year. JDDJ will apply to the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology for testing by the end of August.
As a representative of Shanghai Internet and online economy companies, Dada Group has always been adhering to its corporate social responsibilities. In order to improve the user experience for special groups, Dada Group also recruited some volunteers as «blind experience officers.» With the feedbacks from the blind experience officers, JDDJ’s barrier-free updates made the application more practical for better user experience.
