Globetrekker Challenge builds wellness portal for Garmin in Asia Pacific

Based out of Singapore, Globetrekker Challenge, a corporate wellness software company, will deliver the corporate wellness portal for Garmin across greater Asia and the Pacific. Partnering with domain expertise allows both businesses to mitigate distraction and optimise their core market offerings.

Globetrekker's platform delivers configurable wellness programmes, real time analytics reporting and health risk profiling for employers. Under the agreement with Globetrekker, Garmin employers can now reap the benefits of Garmin’s wearables range within a series of employee health improvement programmes and business intelligence analytics in a one-stop shop.

“Corporate wellness, like many other industries is undergoing a digital transformation. The human resource (HR) function is becoming increasingly reliant on the emerging C-suite of digital - Chief Digital Officers, Chief Information Officers, Chief Technology Officers and as such are seeking real time data to make timely decisions from a position of knowledge. Traditional retrospective reporting is fast becoming obsolete,” said Scott Montgomery, Globetrekker CEO.

“Organisational leaders are hungry for health risk identification to prevent catastrophic events and all their consequences, including vicarious liability*. Globetrekker technology facilitates this risk visibility alongside the expected wellness benefits of reduced HR costs, improved culture and productivity. By adding our technology stack and global panel of experts to Garmin’s pedigree wearable hardware, our clients receive next-level wellness value through fresh employee health experiences and data-driven intelligence.”

“Garmin's goal is to offer a clear, concise and price-attainable solution for our clients,” said Joern Watzke, Director Global B2B Sales, Garmin. “That goal is realised by offering a Globetrekker platform with Garmin devices."


The partnership will be launched in January 2017.

*Vicarious liability refers to a third party being held responsible for the actions or omissions of a person. It would be vicarious liability if an employer is held responsible for the death of an overworked employee, for instance.
