Sonic Boom in a nutshell…

Sonic Boom Wellness drives long-term health improvement by creating personalized programs people love and want to take part in. While many wellness vendors follow a “check-the-box-to-get-your-goodies” approach, Sonic Boom specializes in building engagement.

Sonic Boom’s robust digital engagement platform includes native apps that provide full parity between mobile and desktop, helping members improve their quality of life at work, at home, and on the go. Our interactive programs drive sustained engagement in daily health-habit improvement through social connection, gamification, competition, cooperation, praise and recognition, and a variety of other features within a complete platform that has something for everyone. Sonic Boom also offers a Health Quality Assessment and seamless integrations with biometric screening vendors, combining powerful data elements with member-specific insights to cultivate a unique, tailored approach to lifestyle coaching – all housed within a comprehensive wellness hub for employees and their families.

An innovative leader since 2007, Sonic Boom is constantly studying behavioral economics and motivational theory while delivering extensive best-practice consultation and strategic support. Sonic Boom focuses first and foremost on the core drivers of behavior change, inspiring members to make consistent daily improvements that result in healthier habits for life. Going far beyond physical activity, our programs include engaging modules for optimal nutrition, financial fitness, stress management, sleep, mental wellbeing, and more. Because the Sonic Boom platform is fully customizable, it can promote campaigns around any prioritized company initiative (including safety, diversity and inclusion, values, community, etc.). In our post-COVID-19 world, one of the most sought-after benefits of Sonic Boom is its ability to socially connect people in a virtual environment. While this has always been a core advantage of the program, it has become even more sought after, with clients raving about the positive effects of the social connectivity we create. In fact, clients report that overall employee engagement, beyond just engagement in wellness, has been another benefit of our program.

In an industry full of one-size-fits-all wellness vendors , Sonic Boom remains laser-focused on engaging employees and their families in healthy behaviors at work and at home through fun and easy-to-use programs that shift individual lifestyles and entire cultures toward better overall wellbeing. Providing collaborative and consultative white-glove service, Sonic Boom’s goal is to make every client feel like they’re the only client – all are a big fish in a small sea.

Our service sweet spot includes clients with 1,000-10,000 employees, and we can scale to serve clients with more than 60,000 employees while successfully serving mid-market groups with a minimum of 200 employees. Our highly effective engagement programs do well in all industries, including software, finance, retail, municipalities, education, and manufacturing.

In February 2021, Sonic Boom was acquired by Premise Health, the largest direct healthcare company in the world and one of the largest digital providers in the country, serving more than 2,200 organizations and reaching over 11 million eligible members and their families. Through the acquisition, we’ll work with Premise to provide its clients and members with our interactive wellness platform to increase engagement and help people live healthier lives.

As a boutique-style vendor that’s now part of a larger organization, we’re excited to have new opportunities to positively impact more people with our unique wellness platform while advancing how we connect with members and clients. We will continue to be led by our co-founders with no disruption to clients. Any clients who currently partner or have interest in partnering with Premise can add our digital engagement platform to their offerings, which will integrate seamlessly across Premise’s digital and physical healthcare solutions. As Sonic Boom continues to evolve with Premise, there will be more exciting integration opportunities with our platform in the future.

For more details about the acquisition and its value to both organizations, as well as the clients and members we serve, you can read the press release here. If you have any questions, please let us know!
