You ca earn money, IF you are willing to constantly follow up with them, to force them to give you credit for the activities you complete and IF you can get their website to work.

Helps Focus on Health and Fitness

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I benefit from this app because it makes me aware of how sedentary I am at my job and it entices me to get up and move to earn rewards.

Vorteile:

I love that this software allows me to keep track of my health and fitness along side my FitBit! Not to mention it's set up through my employer and we can earn up to $400 annually for participating!

Nachteile:

There seems to be a few discrepancies when it comes to getting points toward your total score. Some of the tasks you can complete to earn points don't always work. My co-workers and I have noticed that I'll get points for completing a task and they will complete the same task and won't get the points. Other than that, I highly recommend!

A platform with a well-executed vision that it has changed my behaviors.

4,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: I believe this platform delivers an engaging user experience, and based on my experience, the different applications have changed me for the better. Wellness is more critical than ever in today's environment, and this application keeps me logged in and engage in changing my life.

Vorteile:

In comparison to other platforms intended for employee wellness, Virgin Pulse is easy to navigate, and most importantly is very easy to understand my rewards for using each application. Wellness challenges are engaging, and I enjoy logging in every day! The integration with multiple applications for nutrition and wellbeing has helped me eat better and reduce my stress. As a user, I like how I can track my progress and rewards in one location. The web integration to the nutrition application Zipongo is well implemented, and my spouse and I enjoy browsing for new recipes and planning our meals.

Nachteile:

Navigating to other applications in the web platform is easy; however, using different applications in the mobile iOS app is confusing and challenging to navigate. As a user, I don't understand when do I need to enter my credentials for Virgin Pulse vs. the integrated applications like Zipongo or Whil.

An AWFUL customer service experience

3,0 vor 9 Monaten

Vorteile:

Encourages teams to lead a healthy through a rewards program

Nachteile:

The rewards program is very nice. Unfortunately the teams customer service is HORRIBLE. Virgin Pulse does not publicize a call in number on their site. Essentially they encourage you to communicate with them via email. Your emails can go days without being answered. Also since you are communicating via email when you pose a question they do not have to answer it. They tell you what they want to tell you and ignore your question. You ask another question they take days to respond and so on and so on. I finally got to speak with someone and I felt as if I was beating my head against the wall trying to get them to understand. So then I am like okay... whatever. I concede. They won. The product I order comes in. Its the wrong item. Oh boy. I thought I was done dealing with them but at least I have a phone number. I call and the rep cannot resolve the issue so she has to escalate the ticket. I get a response that since I opened the item it is considered used and I cannot return it. Then "I" had to escalate it. After a couple of email exchanges I finally get the watch I ordered. Why does it have to be so difficult. I purchase things all the time and this was the worse.

Easy for new users to learn

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Our team has been very happy with Virgin Pulse. The app is easy to use, the connection to your smart fitness tracker is convenient and makes the tool even easier to adopt. I would recommend for other companies.

Vorteile:

Virgin Pulse's app is convenient, user friendly and provides an incentive to use vs the desktop version. It encourages adoption and the majority of people I know who participate in VP use the app.

Nachteile:

Virgin Pulse does have data glitches from time to time (every 2 months approx) where points do not load. I assume it is when new updates are pushed live, but the bugs are relatively frequent compared to other apps.

Great took to manage corporate healthy living incentives

4,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: Easy track daily activities and gain point for corporate Healthy Living incentives.

Vorteile:

Nice simple to use app that helps track activity, sleep, participation in corporate programs. Daily cards provide good ideas for building good healthy habits. You can create challenges and invite your friends and co-workers to participate.

Nachteile:

The app does have bugs and when they come up with an update you have to log in to the app over and over again. Some programs only work on the Web version (virgin pulse nutrition guides, for example). Sometimes (rarely) the app frizzes and you lose points you gained for the day.

Avoid Contracting with VirginPulse

2,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: I would not utilize their services if left to me independently. Between the type of service they offer, the demeaning “big-brother” aspect of it in employee and employee families lives, and the problems with their software and log in procedures, I find them a problematic company at best.

Vorteile:

I find very little to speak favorably about in regards to Virgin Pulse. They deliver an easy way for employers to try to intervene in the lifestyle of their employees, which is troubling in and off itself. However, in doing so, Virgin Pulse’s services have quirks and problems with their platform and software that make it aggravating to use at times on the end-user side of the platform. And since Virgin Pulse is not beholden to the actual end-user of their service financially, but rather that persons employer, Virgin Pulse does a poor job of improving their software platform and a poor job of handling complaints from the end-user.

Nachteile:

Their software is intrusive to the lives of their end users. They have quirky password policies for end users that make utilizing the software inefficient and often frustrating. They have glitches with email notifications, and a lack of email notifications to give advance notice on their expiring password policies, that cause problems in accessing your account with them. They are not incentivized to help end users appropriately as they seem to just deflect complaints about their system, password and log in policy concerns, etc…

Virgin Pulse Review

3,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: It's great.

Vorteile:

This is a great resource to help achieve health goals, especially if your employer is assisting you in reaching them through the financial gains. It is easy to use, and provides a lot of motivating and helpful information with the daily cards and whil.

Nachteile:

The capabilities differ on the mobile site vs. desktop version. There are some things I prefer to do on the website when I can. Often times, my fit bit will not track my steps and I have to manually sync them.

Virgin pulse review (wellness)

3,0 vor 2 Jahren

Kommentare: Not impressed, as it is not updated instantly when the activities (including steps) are completed. Some activities are not capable to be completed directly from virgin puse.

Vorteile:

It's connected to rewards, and it's easy to see how close to get to a reward point.

Nachteile:

a list of activities to earn points are not too clear to many. A connection to fitness pal is not well. calorie counting is a part of virgin pulse activity, although I have to use a separate app (my fitness pal)-complicated. I can't access to Yoga activities(whil) from virgin pulse either, although the activity is listed as a part of virgin pulse.

A healthy companion

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Vorteile:

Virgin Pulse is a motivating app that gives you many ways to track your own performance and connect with peers who also use the app. I love that they give you health tips and you can track your steps.

Nachteile:

I wish the step tracking could sync with what was tracked by my iphone or Fitbit.

Awful

1,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: I wish my company would drop them all together, so we could go with a better company.

Vorteile:

You ca earn money, IF you are willing to constantly follow up with them, to force them to give you credit for the activities you complete and IF you can get their website to work.

Nachteile:

It is absurdly faulty. It constantly drops your progress, or forces you to follow a "verify your account with a security code sent to your email" process, even when you access their website from the same browser or the same computer on the same network EVERY SINGLE TIME. They never give you the rewards you have earned, unless you follow up with them. Their customer support for the software is deplorable. The people you speak to never have the knowledge or the ability to fix the issues of their faulty system, and they always try to turn it around and blame you, and then try to dump you into an Email Queue once you point out their lies.

avoid as plague

1,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: VIRGIN PULSE MUST DISAPPEAR FROM THIS GALAXY

Vorteile:

Nothing. I have to use it to get reduced co-shares and I hate it. It induces stress instead of relieving it

Nachteile:

This app is horrible, is full of nonsensical activities that you have to do on a daily basis to get points, like clicking a bunch of ok buttons and read a bunch of useless information on how to stay healthy. BUT YOU HAVE TO DO IT DAILY OR YOU DON'T get the points to reduce your co-shares! It is beyond nonsense that an app that should help you is not only imposed to you, but is also a major cause of stress. The step tracking is horrible, the connection with the device is horrible, I have to open it every evening or it will not download the steps. No, it does not download the steps of previous days. And really, tell the genious designer of this app that we are in the middle of a pandemic! You cannot give me advises like "connect with your friends, go take a walk with them, go visit your family." AND I WILL NOT START TALKING ABOUT THE CLEAR VIOLATION OF THE PRIVACY THAT THIS APP IS!

Easiest I’ve ever used

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Intuitive, easy to use. I earn my HSA credits every term, usually way before the period is over, but I am diligent and find the whole process simple and motivating.

Vorteile:

This software is intuitive and super easy to use. I have yet to be confused or mystified when using it, which happens often with me. It motivates me to exercise, eat right and live an overall healthy lifestyle. It takes about 2 minutes a day to read the daily cards (informative & helpful), and complete the healthy habits. I earn points towards a health savings account, HSA, which I can use towards health care expenses. My insurance is thru my husbands employer and that is how we started. We both find it very useful. I can’t recommend it enough!

Nachteile:

Virtually nothing. There is health assessment form that I had to print out and get my Dr’s office to complete, but since I go once a year anyway, it wasn’t an issue.

Virgin Pulse motivates me to be healthier

5,0 vor 3 Jahren

Kommentare: Virgin pulse has definitely motivated me to get out and walk more. The software is user friendly and for the most part works as it should.

Vorteile:

This software makes it easy and fast to track my healthy habits (walking steps, sleep, calories etc.), deliver great health tips and recipes, as well as motivate me to want to make healthier choices like eating less and going for more walks. Its also nice you can compete against friends with the different healthy challenges that Virgin Pulse suggests.

Nachteile:

Cannot really say anything too negative about this software. It's just so easy to use and it is geared towards your own personal settings. What is not to love?

Great Gamification of Wellness

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: At my organization, we use Virgin Pulse as a way to support our wellness initiative. The challenges are fun and it's a great accountability tool for wellness and fitness. It does a great job gamifying the process and providing inspiration to continue.

Vorteile:

- Easy to use their step tracker and link other fitness trackers - Challenges with colleagues are a fun way to hold each other accountable - Challenges outside of our company are also fun ways to build teams and camaraderie - There's a focus on 'wellness' in a broad sense, encouraging participants to view it in a holistic way (e.g. exercise, healthy habits, daily cards that show tips to a well-rounded and healthy life, sleep tracking, nutrition, etc.)

Nachteile:

I have no complaints about Virgin Pulse, except I wish there were rewards past 18,000 points!

Good Way to Keep Track of Your Steps and Monitor Your Health

5,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: I have enjoyed using Virgin Pulse to keep track of my healthy habits and steps and to enhance my overall health.

Vorteile:

Virgin Pulse allows me to monitor my steps and healthy habits and to receive helpful health information customized to my needs. I am daily challenged to be a better, healthier person.

Nachteile:

At times, the application fails to function and I am unable to get all of the information for the day entered. If I do not enter the health information for that day on that day, there is no way to do so at a later time.

Poor design, interfaces, and data entry

1,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: This is a horrible app and software. Any software that won't allow users to correct or delete data, it terrible. If I wasn't forced to use it by my company, I never would. Avoid frustrating your employees. Don't use this ever.

Vorteile:

It links with several apps and devices. It is available as an app for the phone as well as a web page.

Nachteile:

It will not allow you to correct or delete erroneous data. You can increase time for workouts but not decrease. When correcting data, it does not correct it, it erroneously adds a new workout which then cannot be deleted. It will sync with Samsung Health, but it will only sync steps. It won't sync activity and it won't sync sleep. You'll need different apps or devices for that. It syncs with Strava for cyclists like myself. It will sync the activity but it won't convert to steps. Since steps is what gives me a discount on my insurance, it is critical that it record it as steps. If I manually enter the workout as cycling, it will convert to steps. However, if synced to Strava, you'll now have both the Strava entry and the manual workout. There is no way to delete the Strava data or any other data.

Company works with your employer to deny points

1,0 vor 4 Jahren

Kommentare: They're awesome at illogical explanations for their incompetence. Not so good at actually rectifying their mistakes. My heart goes out to any employee that has to use this app.

Vorteile:

Nothing to like. They trick you into thinking that the app works as advertised. And it does, for awhile. But interestingly, it seems to malfunction the closer one gets to the end of points earning season.

Nachteile:

The app stops working. It stops importing steps. By the time one realizes this has happened, it's too late to correct the issue. Virgin pulse refuses to add the points. Is this just a coincidence or is it a subtle way to deny an employee earned points so they do not qualify for a reduced premium? Seems to not be a coincidence.

Steals your information

3,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Sucks

Vorteile:

Nothing. It the most security breach, user unfriendly program ever made.

Nachteile:

App rewards users with points for the more personal information inputed. It really wants to be connected to my cell and I refuse for security reasons. Since I refuse, I loose points which are required to get reduced costs on insurance. The absolute worst part is it that every time you try to log in, you are forced to wait for a code to be e-mailed to you. This e-mail always takes over 4 minutes. So never can you just quickly log in and do your required work and log out. Sometimes the email takes so long to receive that when you go to enter the code you get an error that your time has expired to use that code. Then you have to start all over again. All I know is that I loose alot of productivity at work hitting send/receive on my e-mail a hundred times just to log into this worthless software.

Love the health tips and steps tracking!

4,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: Overall great! It helps me stay healthy and motivates me.

Vorteile:

I love how easy it is to track steps and get trophies for them. I also love the daily health tips that inspire me to live better.

Nachteile:

I don't understand all of the symbols for the trophies. I feel like it would be easier if they had words on them. Also, maybe a helpful tip for using the app could pop up every once in a while, because I feel like there are features I am missing.

Sad that my company no longer uses this

5,0 vor 5 Jahren

Kommentare: When my company stopped using this I was actually really sad because I felt like the motivation needed to earn my steps as well as have friendly challenges with co workers. The new platform that my company uses does not motivate me to want to live a healthy fitness life the way this software did.

Vorteile:

This would sync with a fitness tracker on how many steps you walked, along with how much physical activity you were getting each day. Earning points was really straightforward and I really felt like I EARNED my reward when I reached the goal at the end of the quarter and I was really motivated to hit all my points for the day. I felt like when I redeemed a gift card for my hard earned points it really was a well-deserved reward that made me feel good physically and mentally.

Nachteile:

It lagged every so often in terms of refreshing updates on how far along your progress was, but that was pretty minor

Great Health Incentive Program

5,0 vor 6 Jahren

Kommentare: User friendly and easy to access.

Vorteile:

I like that is easy to keep track of your healthy habits, daily steps, and exercise. You can see your colleagues status and that be your motivation. You can also download the app and it's much easier to navigate to.

Nachteile:

The least I like is that the profile picture you upload to your account is not big enough. For example, if you want to look at your colleagues profile picture it shows up in a mini version which is hard to see.
