EDGEWOOD, N.Y., June 2, 2016— MetroNaps, the premier provider of workplace rest facilities, today announced a new partnership with Pzizz, developers of iOS and Android apps that use a patented algorithm to produce an advanced sleep and power nap audio solution. Pzizz’s popular guided relaxation tracks for napping will be installed as an additional feature on all EnergyPods shipped from July 1, 2016.
Forward-thinking companies worldwide are looking for new ways to maximize productivity and provide staff with a better work-life experience, and research shows that encouraging daytime naps pays dividends in the form of more rested, relaxed and focused employees. In fact, behavioral brain research shows that workplace rest facilities are a sounder company investment than expensive espresso and coffee stations since napping improves alertness and memory more effectively than caffeine.
“We’re incredibly excited to work with MetroNaps to bring great sleep to the world,” said Rockwell Shah, CEO of Pzizz. “Whether it’s at home, work or somewhere in between, our collaboration will make refreshing rest even more accessible.”
With more than 250,000 users, Pzizz combines music, voiceover and sound effects to optimize sleep. The content of the tracks adjust for the duration of the rest session selected, and a male voice guides the user into a state of relaxation, as well as helping with revival.
This makes Pzizz a perfect partner for MetroNaps, maker of EnergyPod, the world’s first chair designed for napping in the workplace. A unique combination of design and technology make MetroNaps EnergyPods the gold standard for napping installations; EnergyPods are used by organizations like Google, Huffington Post, Zappos, PWC, Randstad, Mercedes, NASA, Virgin Active and the University of Miami. The MetroNaps-Pzizz collaboration was recently marked with the installation of the first EnergyPod featuring the new Pzizz tracks at the Wayra incubator space in London where Pzizz has office space.
“Pzizz has had a popular and proven technology for years,” said MetroNaps CEO Christopher Lindholst. “We are pleased to be able to bring Pzizz’s fantastic solution to our thousands of users.”
The first EnergyPods in the United States to feature the new Pzizz technology will be showcased at the upcoming NeoCon commercial interiors tradeshow at booth #7–4123. Held this year June 13–15 at the Merchandise Mart in Chicago, NeoCon 2016 gives commercial interior designers a look at cutting edge products and prototypes.

Their patented algorithm creates dynamic ‘Dreamscapes’ that quickly quiet your mind, put you to sleep, keep you asleep, and wake you up feeling refreshed.
