PROVIDENCE, R.I.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--ShapeUp Inc., the leading global provider of social networking and incentives-based employee wellness solutions, today announced a 20 percent, one-time discount offer for Healthrageous customers who are affected by the announcement that the company has ceased operations.
“We are sorry to see such an innovative and well-respected company exit the marketplace”
ShapeUp has received multiple calls from human resources and benefits managers actively searching for a solution to replace Healthrageous. These companies emphasized the need to quickly and seamlessly implement a new solution that would be easy to use and understand in order to maintain employee interest and commitment to wellness programs currently in place. They also underscored the importance of enabling the continued delivery of existing incentives tracking and fulfillment capabilities to meet promises made to employees under their current benefit plans.
“We are sorry to see such an innovative and well-respected company exit the marketplace,” said Rajiv Kumar, MD, CEO and founder of ShapeUp. “We know that having to switch wellness vendors in the middle of the year is no easy task, so we want to let Healthrageous customers know that we are ready to support and ease their transition as they seek a replacement solution.”
Like Healthrageous, ShapeUp offers a personalized employee wellness experience and validated biometric tracking through wireless device integration, including the FitLinxx Pebble. In addition, its evidence-based programs leverage the power of trusted social networks, fun team challenges, behavioral economics-based incentive structures, and mobile capabilities to sustain engagement year-round. Together, these elements form a robust and effective employee wellness solution that has been adopted by some of the largest corporations in the world.
ShapeUp’s 20 percent, one-time, trade-in discount offer applies to ShapeUp’s standard core solution for the first year of a contract and is valid from now through Nov. 15, 2013. Any quote provided by ShapeUp during this period will be honored based on terms and conditions specified by the contract offer. This offer is restricted to current Healthrageous customers who require a replacement wellness solution in light of the recent developments.
