Shortlister hosted Jen Zygmunt, SVP of Sales and Marketing, and Sarah Ziemer, VP of Corporate Sales, who shared how Wellbeats on-demand app technology delivers a fitness experience that lets employees work out however, whenever and wherever they like.
While the benefits of exercise are many, only 3 out of 10 Americans get the recommended amount of physical activity, yet 72% of people say they would like to exercise more. Clearly, today’s fitness solutions aren’t enough. Thankfully, however, technology is transforming engagement:
Wellbeats was founded in 2008 and helped pioneer the virtual fitness category. Over 2,400+ companies in all 50 states and 19 countries worldwide trust Wellbeats to provide high quality, equitable fitness programming. Their content is available on 9 platforms and average a combined 2.5 million activity minutes per month.
Wellbeats virtual program breaks down barriers to engagement by delivering low cost, high quality on-demand fitness classes across a wide variety of areas at all skill levels. The experience is personalized based on user interests via a brief intake survey and then machine-learning captures in-app behavior to further tailor content to ensure long term, measurable engagement.
Their program is easy to implement with the Wellbeats team available to guide and support new clients through the entire setup process so they can hit the ground running ASAP. Wellbeats also offers an affordable pricing model, making it a simple way to add value to an organization.
On-going client support includes monthly marketing campaigns to engage, inspire and motivate as well as robust measurement and reporting tools for tracking key metrics and managing incentives on a monthly basis. There is also the ability to track the top videos and average employee engagement time to help prove the value of a wellness program and then use these insights to connect Wellbeats directly to a client’s wellness initiative’s key goals.
Wellbeats innovation roadmap includes content and features focused on:
Since there’s no better way to see how Wellbeats can work for a new client than by trying it out, they offer free demo accounts for up to four employees.

|Do employer & consultant users pay to access Shortlister?||Yes – There is a monthly subscription fee||No – Shortlister's public site has tens of thousands of visitors per month that are researching vendors. They do not pay to access this basic vendor data.|
|Do service providers pay to be listed?||No – Service providers can enroll on the Shortlister app for free.||No – Service Providers do not pay to be listed on the Shortlister public site.|
|Can service providers pay to improve their position?||No – The Shortlister app's matching algorithm is completely neutral & unbiased. It matches employer & consultant users with service providers based on how closely the buyers requirements match the service provider's capabilities.||Yes – ONLY on Shortlister's public site. Service providers can bid to show up higher on listing pages. This is how Shortlister is compensated for the substantial effort it takes to curate this pages and vet vendor data.|
|What if a service provider doesn't pay Shortlister?||Nothing – Service providers don't pay a fee to participate on the Shortlister app and are matched based on how well their capabilities align with a buyer's demographics and needs.||Service providers will still be listed on the pages for the services they provide, they will just be listed below those that have bid to list higher on that particular product page.|
|What about the Top Vendor lists at the top of the product listing pages? Is there a fee to be listed?||Not Applicable – The Shortlister app doesn't display Top Vendor lists because the algorithm generates a custom list based on the customer's needs.||Yes - There is a nominal fee of $50 per quarter that's charged if a service provider is approved for a Top Vendor list. Shortlister evaluates vendor capabilities & market performance data to determine who should be listed. Evaluating this data takes considerable time and effort, so the nominal $50 fee covers the cost of the work it takes to curate these lists. If a vendor applies for a Top Vendor list but doesn’t meet the criteria, they are not charged a fee.|
|Who provides reviews of service providers?||Reviews on Shortlister's app are collected from employers and consultants. Service providers are also able to collect reviews from their customers, once they are validated by Shortlister. When a user is logged into the Shortlister app, they can clearly see the source of the review.||Public site reviews are an aggregation of employer, consultant and provider-collected reviews. There is no way for public site visitors to differentiate the source of the review.|
|Do service providers see information and reviews put in the site by your users?||Service providers cannot see the information put in by Shortlister's consultant and employer users.||Service providers can see information that was collected from their own clients.|
