Zest Technology has signed an agreement with the workplace pensions and employee benefits specialist, Johnson Fleming, enabling the company to provide Zest’s new employee benefits platform to its clients.

Established in 2002, Johnson Fleming is one of the best known names in the sector and provides outsourced pensions and benefits support to some of the UK’s leading businesses.

Commenting on the rationale behind the decision to select Zest as its employee benefits platform of choice, Simon Fletcher, CEO at Johnson Fleming, said: “Above and beyond offering what we firmly believe is the most innovative, exciting and cost effective employee benefits platform on the market today, there were several other key factors in our decision to partner with Zest. For instance, as important as product excellence was in our choice of partner, of equal importance is our shared approach and commitment to customer service and a mutual culture of trust and collaboration. In that respect we are very similar organisations and I’m convinced it will help ensure a long and profitable partnership between Johnson Fleming and Zest.”

Ray Sieber, Managing Director at Zest (pictured) added: “This new agreement with Johnson Fleming is a fantastic example of our ambition to make the Zest platform as ubiquitous as possible across the wider employee benefits sector. As well as our direct clients and our licensee partners who ‘white label’ our product, we want to be the product of choice for a select group of large employee benefits consultants and IFAs who wish to resell the Zest branded platform. We are thrilled to be working with Johnson Fleming in this respect – it’s a fantastic endorsement of the fact that we now offer what is widely acknowledged as the most advanced, cost-effective and user-friendly employee benefits platform available.”
