Wellbit

Problem

Many companies suffer losses due to the fact that employees get sick, burnout at work and lose effectiveness. Wellbit is the health and wellness platform which allows companies to track the mental and physical health of their employees and, as a result, to avoid the lost revenues.

Stakeholders

Stakeholders are companies and their employees.

Some statistics: In 2015, 39.5 million U.S. adults 18 and over used wearable devices, including smartwatches and fitness trackers — an increase of 57.7 percent over 2014. That growth will continue in 2016 and beyond, with 81.7 million adults using wearables by 2018.

The Lean Canvas

What we have done

Being a technical co-founder, our team developed Wellbit, the health and wellness platform for companies. This web application helps companies organize monitoring the health figures of their employees.

All solutions, related to technical details such as architecture, database designing, integration with external API (Fitbit, Misfit, Jawbone), were made on the basis of our research. We selected frameworks and libraries to develop and launch the application as soon as possible and better for users.

After 2.5 months of MVP development and implementation process, we tried to update the application with new features and modifications weekly, taking into account users’ feedback. This approach helped timely react to the market demand.

About platform

We developed the platform for companies in order to track health and wellness figures of their employees. It works pretty easy. A company signs up on the Wellbit platform and sends invitations to its employees. The last ones accept invitation, sign up, and connect their wearables to the Wellbit. The platform maintains the most popular devices such as Fitbit, Misfit, Jawbone that help check employee’s activities and health conditions.

Functionality of this platform helps an employee add his goals (for example, lose weight, give up smoking, or do some sport activities), and his supervisor can approve it or reject.

“My Wellness” section joins together BMI (body mass index) history and 8 types of calculators for estimation of BMI, physical risk, fatigue, mental health, stress, alcohol risk, smoking risk, diabetes.

This web applдication implemented as a game that allows employees to compete with each other. An employee can see his position in the corporate rank and try to reach higher positions in comparison with colleagues. An employer, in his turn can track employee statistics by all parameters and apply relevant measures to avoid risk factors.
