One of the UK’s leading independent insurance and financial solutions specialists, The Bartlett Group, has signed a licence agreement with Zest Technology to market its innovative employee benefits platform.
Established over 80 years ago, the Leeds-based Bartlett Group – with offices across the UK and internationally from Sydney to Kampala – supports clients in more than 40 countries and has been named UK Broker of the Year twice in the last five years.
Explaining the rationale for the new agreement, Andy Russell, Employee Benefits Director at The Bartlett Group (pictured), said: “We offer our clients a full range of innovative financial services solutions and wanted to ensure that our employee benefits offering was equally as comprehensive so it was crucial that we identified the right partner to help bring this to market. We conducted an extensive evaluation of the benefits technology platforms available and Zest stood head and shoulders above the crowd. It significantly reduces the time and cost of implementing benefits technology, offers a seamless employee experience and provides simple tools that reduce the administrative burden for employers. We have huge ambitions in the employee benefits space and partnering with Zest will enable us to help employers achieve their corporate reward objectives while saving time and money in the process.”
Commenting on the announcement, Ray Sieber, Managing Director at Zest said: “We’re thrilled that Bartlett has taken the decision to partner with Zest which is a fantastic endorsement of the revolutionary approach taken and the hard work, skill and dedication of everybody behind the development of what is now widely recognised as the most advanced and easiest to use employee benefits platform on the market. We’re looking forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship between our two companies as we continue to transform the sector and bring protection and other flexible benefits to a much wider audience than would have been even remotely possible in the past.”
