Guryou – Wellness Community
TRANSFORMING WELLNESS WITH AI AND ML
The Wellness Industry
Physical inactivity is one of the leading risk factors for health (WHO). Almost 40% of the population is not active enough to meet health recommendations. Inactivity has raised up from 31% in 2001 to 37% in 2016.
The healthy-living, self-help, self-care, fitness, nutrition, diet, and spiritual practices have become a flourishing wellness movement in the 21st century. According to data and trends provided in the most recent GWI Global Wellness Economy Monitor:
- The global wellness economy was a $4.2 trillion market in 2017.
- The industry grew by 6.4 percent annually from 2015–2017, from a $3.7 trillion to a $4.2 trillion market, nearly twice as fast as global economic growth (3.6 percent annually, based on IMF data).
- Wellness expenditures ($4.2 trillion) are more than half of the total global health expenditures ($7.3 trillion, based on WHO data).
- The wellness industry represents 5.3 percent of the global economic output.
- Among the 10 wellness markets analyzed, the revenue growth leaders from 2015–2017 (per annum) were the spa industry (9.8 percent), wellness tourism (6.5 percent) and wellness real estate (6.4 percent).
* (The minimum amount of movement recommended by the WHO is 150 minutes of moderate-intensity, or 75 minutes of vigorous-intensity physical activity per week)

How Did the Wellness Platform Make a Digital Transformation?
We have developed an AI-powered app to enhance customer experience in the wellness booking.
This is done via continuous learning from the customers and their behavior. Those insights are further used to provide improvements for better end-user experience.
Allowing Business providers to focus on customers through the entire wellness experience and helping them along the way.
The Wellness Platform and How It Works
It is an AI-driven platform able to match more demanding consumer needs with wellness and fitness treatment vendors.
It enables go-to-market via multiple channels to attract businesses, create the marketplace and serve the need while offering a hassle-free platform.
It enables connectivity of any wellness device to collect data of any wellness manufacturer thus creating the big-data wellness platform.
The Wellness Platform and Who Is It For
The Wellness Platform is used to assign classes or training sessions, create and sell membership, onboard new members, track employee hours, pull reports, keep track of members, track and process payments, and send emails.
1. Trainers often use the platform to find out their upcoming schedules, see how many members are signed up for their services, and track members’ progress.
Integrating IoT devices into traditional training removes the need for trainers to manually track workouts, also helps to monitor user progress and provides advice to help them.
2. People that workout use this platform to book classes or services online (either through a dedicated app or on the company website), to make payments, and to access their personalized fitness information.
It also gives real-time feedback and keeps track of every rep and every set of exercises that users put into the routine.
The Wellness Platform and How It Helps
The Wellness Platform can help enhance the customer experience by:
- Intuitive search and reservation
- Smart recommendations and scheduling
- Valuable content and information sharing
The IOW Platform can help increase customer base by enhancing the customer support services, thereby helping to increase sales:
- Decreases time spent in managing the offering and calendar

HOW DOES ALITE INTERNATIONAL HELP COMPANIES
DIGITALIZE FOR THE FUTURE?
Why It Is Important to Your Organization?
- Is your organization embracing digital transformation? What is digital transformation exactly? And if you are not embracing it, should you?
- Organizations need to evolve to address the changing business landscapes. Ideally, IT spending is driven by the need to meet business requirements. Business leaders want IT to be focused on business results, innovation, and continuous improvement. Digital transformation can be defined as the acceleration of business activities, processes, competencies, and models to fully leverage the changes and opportunities of digital technologies and their impact in a strategic and prioritized way.
- As technology is evolving, business requirements are following the trend. Part of the whole process of digital transformation is implementing artificial intelligence and machine learning. Those technologies are used for different products and industries. With AI and ML, solutions are made more independent as they are learning from data, customers’ behavior, and intent so they respond in context with that.
- In fact, digital transformation is business transformation. These digital business transformations are influenced/driven by the following factors: Technology innovation, external environmental factors, customer behavior, and demand.
