Our plans offer the right fit for your study.

The Standard and Everything plans are also available for more in-depth data collection.

Optimized for Engagement

Personalized messages increase engagement. Craft messages that include key elements of a participant's profile. Any message can smoothly incorporate data from a participant's profile such as a recent Fitbit stat or other metric. In addition, participant data can be used to influence daily message selection. We know engagement matters and we work with you to design the best text-message intervention possible.

Fitbit Integration

If your participants are using a Fitbit wearable device, or using the Fitbit App to track behavioral characteristics such as activity, sleep, or nutrition, all of that data is instantly available to our messaging engine. You can use Fitbit to influence both the content and selection of daily messages, or simply track them in your study dashboard for later analysis.

Two-Way Data Collection

You can send text-friendly Likert scales, quick yes/no questions, mood assessments, or even free-form questions. The system handles replies automatically, updating participant profiles on the fly. Responses to your questions become data that's instantly able to influence subsequent message selection.
