The Way to Well Health Tour travels the country delivering free health tests, education and consultations to adults 18 and over. Since its inception, the tour has delivered more than four million health tests valued at almost $80 million.
At the tour, the visitors also learn about Walgreen’s Balance Rewards and receive tutorials on how to use fitness devices and digital applications to help track their personal health and fitness goals.
Visitors often show interest in Balanced Rewards but forget to sign-up for it once they leave the site. Walgreen wanted to provide a way for visitors to sign-up for balanced rewards on the spot.
Walgreens deployed Customer Facing Devices (iPad based Digital Kiosks) in all of The Way to Well Health Tour buses. These devices travelled the country for in the tour buses and provide a secure, convenient and cost effective way for customers to sign-up for the Balanced Rewards program in the tour bus.
