    How we Serve

     

    PACE 2000 has developed a modern secure videoconferencing application for face-to-face interations without the technology barriers typical of videoconferencing applications. We call it PACE-2-Face™

    Using PACE-2-Face™, an accessible, user-friendly "four dimensional, 4D” interface, consisting of :

    1. Audio
    2. Video
    3. Concomitant and symmetric document and applications sharing
    4. Co-Edition of texts

    and senoirs can use PACE-2-Face™ without the need of an attending third party.

    An excellent and highly inclusive solution to empower older adults to engage in entrepreneurship and promote intergenerational collaboration.

    The PACE-2-Face™ solution has been thoroughly tested and the application and associated managed partner-pairing program demonstrated great knowledge of the needs, wishes and aspirations of older adults and of youth of varying socio-economical backgrounds.

    Since its creation, the PACE 2000 Foundation has therefore developed new urbanization and virtual community tools, in particular thanks to new communication technologies.
