Abstract This thesis aims to describe how enterprises can approach and reach older citizens in order to sell new technology products. For that they need information about aspects affecting elderlies purchase decisions regarding these kind of products. The study is based on 13 qualitative interviews where we have applied semi structured interviews and observations of the elderlies behaviour towards an Ipad which we used as a study object during the interviews. The results of this study shows several aspects which affect the elderlies purchase decision regarding new technology but it all comes down to one matter, lack of knowledge. In order to overcome that obstacle, enterprises need to modify their communication strategy. They will be needing information about elderlies preferences and their self-image, meaning how they perceive themselves which is connected to how receptive they are towards new technology. They will also need to communicate information about the products area of use, the quality of the product, that the product is user-friendly and that there is impeccable support and education available. All these aspects have shown to have huge impact on the purchase decision. Enterprises need to assure the elderly segment that they will be able to use these products without complications. Since the social environment, especially the younger segment has shown to have an impact on the elderlies purchase decisions, enterprises must also turn the attention and start communicating this information towards them also.
