Case Study by Independent Research Firm Features Acsys Interactive's Work With MassMutual Retirement Services

FARMINGTON, CT--(Marketwire - Aug 16, 2011) - Acsys Interactive is pleased to announce that an iPhone application developed earlier this year with MassMutual Retirement Services is the subject of a July 2011 Forrester Research Inc. case study titled "Case Study: Mass Mutual Helps Gen Yers See Into Their Futures."

Acsys and MassMutual Retirement Services developed the app to help educate Gen Yers on the importance of planning for retirement. The app challenges users to see how they will look at retirement age, places them in future humorous outcomes that highlight the need to save properly, and allows them to share their outcome on Facebook.

"Your Future Moves engages twentysomethings by giving them the opportunity to take a peek at their future to highlight the need to start thinking about retirement sooner rather than later," says Acsys Executive Creative Director Lino Ribolla. "Part of our ongoing mission is to help our clients remain relevant in an increasingly digital world, and it's in that spirit that we helped MassMutual Retirement Services develop this edutainment-based app."

"The game demonstrates that MassMutual is an innovative company," said Kris Gates, Assistant Vice President of Participant and Interactive Marketing in MassMutual's Retirement Services Division, "and we're counting on the viral aspects of social media to help promote this image."
