Helping a fitness brand hit the finish line with digital innovation
Johnson Health Tech (JHT) is passionate about delivering solutions that help their customers. And they had a new fitness goal: to strengthen the synergy between health club trainers and their gym-loving clients. Making exercise more personalized and productive. So JHT set out to build a digital “Personal Trainer Portal” (PTP) to better measure fitness progress. Improving workouts for clients, and providing a new revenue stream for JHT. But they needed it done fast, and didn’t have the resources to tackle it in-house. They brought in Cogniance to deliver efficiency, speed, and superior software engineering. Cogniance quickly convened a dedicated team, jumped into the project—and ran with it.
The goal: powerful apps that help outfit fitness enthusiasts
JHT designs, builds, and sells state-of-the-art exercise equipment to fitness centers worldwide. They knew that their PTP’s integrated technology could offer their clients something more. By building outstanding high-performance apps and seamless integration, trainers would be able to access clients’ exercise data and adjust workout plans based on actual performance. But they lacked the resources for the urgent project. And so, the partnership developed―with Cogniance’s project team joining JHT’s, for successful simultaneous development of mobile, web, and console versions of PTP.

Behind-the-scenes heavy lifting 

The pressing need: more speed, more manpower, and robust expertise. JHT had a crystal clear vision for how their PTP could optimize, modernize, and personalize training. But they needed a capable engineering and QA partner who would jump in lightening fast, work hand-in-hand with their team, and get it done. So JHT provided the design and direction. And Cogniance’s dedicated experts embraced the challenge—bringing skilled software engineering, peerless project management, and systematic quality assurance. Quickly and effectively collaborating to deliver the on-target technology. On time. And on budget.

Our two-time partnership helped JHT triumph
Working fast, flexibly, and fitness-focused, our tight collaboration delivered the user-friendly PTP apps. They’re connected to a web-based system that tracks customers’ fitness data, linking it to their private accounts. Access to PTP’s user interface is launched from within the Netpulse One mobile app; Cogniance ensured smooth integration and collaboration with the Netpulse team to make it happen. And we introduced a testing tool that simulated different types of training equipment, allowing engineers to ensure painstaking quality control. Together, the JHT and Cogniance teams mastered all the complexities of integration with the cross-platform systems. Goal achieved.
Our two-time partnership helped JHT triumph
Success! In 2016, JHT proudly brought the PTP demo to market, selling it to fitness centers worldwide. The Cogniance-JHT partnership worked so well that they asked us to partner a second time, accelerating the delivery of feature-rich apps in line with their client commitments. Developing even more functionality for the previous app and portal versions. And so, JHT—and the clubs using their technology—remain front runners.
