Announcing The 2016 Wisetail Way Award Winner: SoulCycle

We are excited to present the 2016 Wisetail Way Award to SoulCycle. The NYC-based indoor cycling company has become a powerhouse in the boutique fitness world over the last ten years. The L&D team at SoulCycle has shown exemplary use of The Wheel, its Wisetail implementation. Utilizing beautiful site design, working to create a seamless brand experience, and building innovative learning courses helped SoulCycle stand out amongst this year’s nominees.

“There is no difference between The Wheel and the SoulCycle brand,” said Kelsey Schaufler, SoulCycle’s Wisetail Client Experience rep. “The way they delegate and totally take ownership of the system just really works.”

“We are thrilled to accept the 2016 Wisetail Way Award. From the concept to the execution of The Wheel, Wisetail has been an invaluable partner to us. We are proud to watch our teams utilizing and leveraging it to enhance the way we work.”

Patrick Ryan, Senior Manager of Field Operations and Training
