Share Article

New partnership between the two industry leaders will leverage technology to expand distribution.

Paylogix, the leading technology provider of administrative and enrollment solutions to the insurance industry, announced a partnership with ARAG legal insurance. This partnership is expected to significantly expand access to the ARAG line of personal legal protection products.

Debuting in 2016, Exchange Builder® is a cloud-based, employer-specific benefits marketplace platform designed for small to mid-size employer groups. Utilizing this web-based solution, employee benefit brokers create a customized marketplace for the communication, enrollment, billing and administration of both core and voluntary employee benefits. This is an industry first and is expected to change the way that employee benefits are delivered.

For more than 40 years, ARAG has been a leader in providing employees access to insurance when something in life turns into a legal issue; like a dispute with a contractor, a traffic ticket or the need for estate planning. ARAG offers additional services including identity theft protection and recovery, caregiving solutions, tax services and financial counseling. Instead of missing work, employees have access to a network of more than 12,000 attorneys who can advise and represent them on legal problems and review or prepare documents. ARAG legal plans can be seamlessly implemented through the Paylogix Exchange Builder platform, with no additional cost to the employer. By providing access to legal services, employers can improve the productivity and quality of life for their employees.

John Warren, Practice Leader for Paylogix, stated, “Exchange Builder is the end-to-end solution that the market has been seeking. From case level/employer group carrier RFQs, through our premier providers, to benefits communication to employee self-enrollment (through any device with avatar-led decision support tools) to effortless benefit administration for the employer, Exchange Builder is set to positively disrupt the industry by making the small to mid-size employer market not only viable again but profitable.”

“Joining Paylogix allows ARAG to reach even more consumers and provide affordable legal services to all,” said Dennis Healy, ARAG Chief Sales Officer. “It is exciting to deliver a solution that’s easy to implement and will help brokers and their clients reduce stress and absenteeism in the workplace — while empowering employees to solve their legal issues.”
