New App from Glideaway Expands Functionality of Adjustable Base Features
Specialty sleep manufacturer Glideaway Sleep Products will introduce an app that will work with two of the company’s premium Comfort Base adjustable beds, Ascend and Elevation, which allow users to operate a wealth of features available in each of the foundations, as well as access personal playlists and other enhancements in one central location.
Glideaway has implemented a program to provide retailers selling Ascend and Elevation with modules to connect the bases to the newly created app. A single app, available through the Apple App Store and Google Play for Android devices, is designed to work either model with ease. The app was showcased at the Summer Las Vegas Furniture.
A seamless interface allows users to launch the app and select the base they have. The app screen mimics the foundations’ hand-held remotes. Features allow users to set alarms, and on the Elevation model, the alarm sounds through built-in Bluetooth® speakers. The app offers two-position memory settings that work in conjunction with alarms – either to wake or to go to sleep.
“Our Comfort Base App takes full advantage of all the functionality we’ve packed into our Ascend and Elevation bases,” said Dan Baker, Executive Vice President of Sales, North America for Glideaway.
“It gives users access to all the creature features like zero gravity, anti-snore, under-bed lighting, and positioning to enhance a restful night’s sleep in a seamless, easy-to-use app. Consumers increasingly want to simplify as many elements of their lifestyle, without worrying about multiple devices throughout their home. With the Comfort Base App we have taken a significant step in assisting them with their sleep system.”
Glideaway partnered with the manufacturer of its Comfort Base motors to create the app technology. The graphics were designed by Glideaway’s in-house graphics design team. The app is free of charge to download and works on phones and tablets. An in-depth FAQ section allows consumers to seek answers, and it also provides a customer feedback section.
Glideaway is a division of Fredman Bros. Furniture Company, Inc., a full-service bedding supplier to full-line furniture retailers and specialty sleep shops.
