Rise People Launches Free Payroll Offering in Quebec

Vancouver, BC - September 24, 2019 - Rise People Inc (“Rise”), a leading digital HR, payroll and group benefits platform, officially launched in Quebec. Reinforcing its commitment to the business community in this market, Rise is offering its payroll service free until the end of the year.

Today’s announcement further demonstrates the company’s commitment to advancing the innovation and growth of businesses across Canada. The official launch of the bilingual Rise platform and expansion in Quebec is being led by former Sun Life executive, Diane Lafontaine, and supported by an experienced team based in Montreal to service Quebec clients.

“We know first-hand how complex payroll and group benefits can be in Quebec. Companies are switching from legacy solutions to Rise for a simple, fully integrated solution,” shares Diane Lafontaine. “Our goal is to provide outstanding client experiences from our Montreal-based client support centre with an offer that makes it easier for businesses to enhance workplace satisfaction and simplify HR administration.”

Rise People’s comprehensive payroll service makes processing payments to employees simple and ensures 100% compliance with government agencies. For Quebec businesses of all sizes and in all industries, the free payroll offering provides more opportunities to significantly reduce the amount of hours spent on data entry and processing while reducing risk of non-compliance.

“Due to the huge success of Rise’s fully integrated payroll and benefits administration solution launched earlier this year, we are now ready for the Quebec market. Today’s announcement gives Quebec businesses new opportunities to streamline their work and offer engaging employee experiences, while allowing us to achieve our goal of supporting Canadian businesses across the country,” said Faiz Abdulla, founder and CEO at Rise People.

Rise’s new introductory offer is available to Quebec businesses that sign up for Rise’s payroll and benefits administration modules and Sun Life group benefits by December 31, 2019.

In partnership with Sun Life, Rise pioneered Canada’s first integrated benefits administration solution and continues to evolve the integrated platform with feedback from clients and benefits advisors. Building on this expertise, Rise is developing integrations with other group benefits carriers and will roll out new solutions in a phased approach over the next 12 months.
