Kingsdown BedMatch program exceeds 17 million consumer profiles

MEBANE, N.C. – Kingsdown’s proprietary bedMATCH™ system—has reached a new milestone by surpassing 17 million consumer profiles. The well-known diagnostic tool used by leading retailers around the world has undergone a major brand refresh adding new features, improved design and how the software guides and interacts with customers in a variety of languages.

Kingsdown product development and sales professionals worked together on a redesign of the physical presentation on the retail floor, which resulted in a tighter, more flexible footprint with a modern and streamlined high-tech look in line with the needs of today’s retail environments.

As part of the enhanced experience, shoppers lay on a mattress covered in an antimicrobial fabric and equipped with sensors that scan the body and analyze thousands of calculations. In this updated version, mobile-enabled results have removed the need for printers to provide consumers with the system’s recommendations. Instead, shoppers are provided with a unique QR code to take home their results, and the RSA receives the same code via email for follow-up.

A newly designed User Interface (UI) accommodates socially sensitive demographic questions, provides multi-language support, and expanded health and wellness profiling. Later this year, Kingsdown will roll out an update to its online bedMATCH tool with an API toolkit for seamless integration into retail partner websites and eCommerce platforms for a true omnichannel solution.

            Installed in more than 1,450 retail locations around the globe, the patented, brand agnostic system is currently used by more than 4,100 retail sales associates worldwide to help shoppers match their sleep habits, health and body profiles to the best mattress available in a store, whether or not the mattress is a Kingsdown.

            As part of the redesign process, Kingsdown performed proprietary research with retail sales associates and surveyed a panel of 500 consumers to best evaluate the current attitudes and behaviors surrounding in-store mattress matching tools, and bedMATCH specifically. According to the research, more than 80 percent of the RSAs surveyed said that the bedMATCH system was easy to use in-store and its results were consistently reliable. For their part, more than 80 percent of the consumers surveyed said they felt using an in-store diagnostic tool helped them make a decision when shopping for a mattress. That figure rose to 90 percent if they used the bedMATCH system.

“The new design of bedMATCH ensures Kingsdown’s continued leadership in the in-store diagnostics space, as well as providing exceptional support of partner RSAs, who benefit from increased close rates, improved average unit selling price, fewer mattress returns and a more frictionless sales process overall,” said Frank Hood, president, and chief executive officer of Kingsdown.
