KrowdFit members can utilize a wide variety of wearable technology devices (such as smart watches) to track their activity.
“Connecting benefits to enrich the health, wealth, and overall wellbeing of participants is one of the keys to benefits success. By working with leading organizations like KrowdFit across the benefits spectrum, we’re empowering employers to enhance their offerings through our benefits administration technology platform,” said Wolfe. “With KrowdFit on the Empyrean Platform, we’re making it easier than ever for employers to implement and track their programs – while also increasing the frequency, quality, and depth of participants’ everyday benefits engagement.”
