Rise People Announces National Partner Program to Deliver First of its Kind Integrated HR, Payroll and Benefits Solution for Canadian Businesses

Vancouver, BC - December 6, 2017 - Rise People, a leading digital HR, payroll and group benefits software platform, has announced the launch of its strategic partner program to deliver a first of its kind integrated human resources, insurance, group benefits, and pension solution to Canadian businesses looking to streamline people management and fuel more fulfilling employee experiences.

As part of its plans for rapid expansion, Rise People will combine its leading technology with sound advice from trusted Canadian insurance consulting and advisory firms, including Granville West Group, Davis Benefits & Pensions Ltd., Lane Quinn Benefit Consultants, Hull Clearwater Pension & Benefits Inc., and Benefex Consulting Inc.

These consulting and advisory firms are the first to pilot this approach with Rise, enabling them to enrich the user experience through a fully digital, unified solution for their clients’ people management and insurance needs, including HR, payroll and benefits. Upon completion of the pilot, the program will be rolled out to well aligned consulting and advisory firms across the country.

Rise People’s Founder and CEO, Faiz Abdulla, says, “We’re thrilled to be partnering with likeminded forward thinking providers of insurance consulting solutions in Canada. Today’s announcement sets the bar higher for the insurance industry across Canada, giving our partners a suite of solutions that is unparallelled in the space. We’re very excited to be working closely with them to bring an entirely new level of efficiency and convenience to our mutual clients.”

The new partner program allows Rise’s partners to bundle their group benefits and pension solutions with a digital HR and payroll platform that helps their clients save time and eliminate redundancies while improving overall employee satisfaction and retention.

To fully digitize the experience, Rise has completed integrations with some national insurance carriers and is on track to include the majority of carriers in 2018. Additionally, Rise is currently in discussions with carriers to form a broader partnership to elevate the employer and employee experience through collaborative innovation in digital solutions.

Brigitte Parent, Rise board advisor and industry expert, states, “This partner program will open up an entirely new level of services that was previously unavailable to the partners’ clients. By offering them Rise’s modern HR, payroll and benefits software platform, Rise is helping their partners’ clients simplify the administrative side of people management and engage their employees with more rewarding experiences.”
