San Francisco, CA, February 28th — Ease, the leading HR and benefits SaaS platform powered by insurance brokers, has announced an integration with insurance provider The Guardian Life Insurance Company of America®, (Guardian). The partnership will increase opportunities for small and medium-sized business owners to offer their employees Guardian insurance plans and help simplify the enrollment process. The integration will allow existing Guardian and Ease customers to access their benefits information online, creating a simplified way to make selections and changes to important personal information.
Guardian is a Fortune 250 company and a leading provider of life, dental, disability and other individual employee benefits. This integration will allow small businesses, with as little as two employees, to access these quality employee benefits that they otherwise would not have access to. Additionally, by integrating directly with Guardian, ID cards are sent to employees more quickly, allowing them to take advantage of their coverage even sooner.
“Guardian believes that technology partnerships are critical to enhancing the employee benefits experience of our customers and their advisors,” said Adam Feltes, Director of Strategy, Strategic Partnerships, for Guardian. “We are excited when we find partners who share the belief that we have a responsibility to make interactions simple, secure, fast, and accurate.”
This integration supports Guardian’s group dental, vision, life/AD&D, STD, LTD, critical illness/specified disease, hospital indemnity, accident, and cancer plans. Employees nationwide will be able to enroll in Guardian plans online, through the Ease portal, eliminating paperwork. It will also allow brokers who offer Guardian plans to provide their clients with a more efficient enrollment process, saving time and resources.
“Ease is committed to increasing and simplifying access to quality insurance and benefits plans and information,” said David Reid, CEO and Co-founder of Ease. “We are thrilled to announce this partnership as it allows us to do just that, with one of the largest insurance providers in the nation.”
With this latest integration, Ease is now working with more than 55,000 employers, servicing 1.3 million enrollees. The company has seen record growth since its inception in 2012 and is enjoying continued growth and momentum through 2018.
