Virgin Pulse Helping Employers Support Employee Fitness

Digital Product / Healthcare and Life Sciences
Virgin Pulse, part of Richard Branson’s Virgin Group, sought out a way to motivate their employees toward a more active lifestyle.

Starting with a Strategy

 

Rightpoint development teams worked with Virgin Pulse to build a wireless Bluetooth (BTLE) solution to get the GoZone pedometer to work with more than 100,000 devices. BTLE is a solution to sync the GoZone pedometer with a smartphone to help support fitness.
