Here at Sleep.com, we're usually all about recommending natural sleep remedies like sipping chamomile tea at bedtime. But today we're excited to be spilling the tea about an exciting new partnership between our parent company Mattress Firm — America's leading mattress retailer — and SleepScore Labs, the company behind the world’s most comprehensive suite of evidence-based sleep solutions. These two leading sleep companies have teamed up to help you achieve better sleep.
“We’re thrilled to partner with SleepScore Labs, the leader in sleep science, as both organizations share the mission of helping people everywhere sleep better and feel their best every day,” said John Eck, President and CEO of Mattress Firm. “This partnership is one of many strategic investments, including the recent launch of Sleep.com, helping us enhance the total customer experience.”
SleepScore Labs was founded in 2016 by a team of sleep experts from companies, institutions, and organizations such as ResMed, Apple, Philips, and Harvard. After studying more than 70 million hours of sleep, SleepScore Labs developed the proprietary sleep-tracking technology that powers SleepScore, the world’s most accurate sleep app.
Sleep.com and Mattress Firm will work with SleepScore Labs sleep scientists to create the first integrated sleep-improvement program. Powered by SleepScore Labs data, technology, and expertise, this program will aim to help people at every step of their sleep journey — from picking the perfect mattress to consistently getting great sleep at home.
Below, we dive into some of the specifics of this long-term partnership, including a special Sleep.com announcement.
Sleep.com + SleepScore Labs: The New Dream Team
When it comes to the state of sleep, there’s important work to be done to improve Americans’ rest.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), one in three people get less than the recommended seven hours per night — a practice that puts them at a higher risk of obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes, coronary heart disease, stroke, and frequent mental distress.
To help Americans get the sleep they need to feel their best, Mattress Firm and Sleep.com will work with SleepScore Labs in a variety of ways to empower consumers throughout their entire sleep journey, including:
Developing an Improved Retail Experience
Mattress Firm’s Sleep Experts, all of whom complete at least 200 hours of training, are excited to leverage SleepScore’s more than 70 million hours of sleep data, as well as its technology and expertise to identify the right product for each consumer and then monitor that customer’s post-purchase experience, improving their mattress-buying experience from start to finish.
Launching a New Sleep App
Sleep.com is poised to create an app powered by SleepScore Labs’ best-in-class sleep tracking (Wirecutter recently rated it #1). Similar to the SleepScore app, the Sleep.com branded app, as planned, will use sonar (the same technology bats and submarines use for navigation), to analyze your sleep and recommend ways you can improve it.
The Future of Sleep.com is Bright
In addition to a new-and-improved Mattress Firm shopping experience and an exciting new sleep-tracking app, Sleep.com will also look to tap SleepScore Labs’ product innovation and validation tools, their suite of digital services, and more to help you improve your sleep.
