HealthyBehaviors.com (http://www.healthybehaviors.com) announced that they have chosen Information Technologies, Inc. (ITI) (http://www.infotechinc.com) of Austin, TX, to develop their new interactive website. The site, which HealthyBehaviors.com anticipates having up and running by January of 2006, will offer a unique way for individuals to track key behaviors and results that contribute to weight loss, better health, or physical fitness. The companies did not divulge the value of the development contract.
“As we talked with Shaune Stark, President of ITI, it became clear that the chemistry was right. We were impressed with the depth of experience in the firm as well,” said Ellen Wood Jones, Vice President and co-founder of HealthyBehaviors.com. “Their development staff has done work for companies such as Computer Sciences Corporation, Dana Commercial Credit (IronRhino), USAA, FAO Schwarz, and Dell.”
HealthyBehaviors.com will market individual memberships to people who are interested in losing weight, gaining general fitness, training for running or bicycling in races or for recreation. Other areas of personal development will be added to the site over time. Feedback on goal progress will be provided by simple graphs that users can print out for maximum effect. The company’s stated aim is to make the site highly flexible, while being easy and quick to use.
“The main functionality will be in a scored, matrix tracking system that provides a sort of road map for users. It sets up incremental and long-term goals for key behaviors and results that make up the total picture of whatever users want to change in their lives,” stated Jones. “What’s really powerful is the way it will help change behavior – a recognized necessity for getting better personal results. We are also seeking affiliates – or resellers – such as personal trainers, health clubs, gyms – or even other websites that deal with these areas of interest.”
Information Technologies, Inc., located in Austin, is a privately owned consulting firm specializing in custom software development, IT consulting, and staff augmentation services.
