Bringing Kiqplan on board will deliver a number of new and enhanced features that will give these users even greater control, insights and motivation to achieve their lifestyle goals.”
Presenting at the conference Paul Landau, Founder and CEO of Fitbug Limited said “we are delighted to participate on the Samsung Digital Health platform and work with a business of the scale, quality and stature of Samsung. This integration should help quickly build Kiqplan brand awareness and establish a user base that provides a great opportunity to sell follow on Kiqplans to satisfied Samsung users”.
