TORONTO (PRWEB) October 16, 2018
The Leslie Group, an independent employee benefits consulting firm founded in 1992 focused on Canadian organizations, has entered into a non-exclusive partnership with Collage, the HR, payroll, and benefits management platform, to incorporate digital HR, benefits, and pension management technology into its service model. The Leslie Group is also announcing that it has acquired 100% of the direct benefits brokerage clients of Collage
The partnership enables The Leslie Group to bring even greater value to their client base by simplifying administrative tasks, eliminating redundancies and improving compliance. Collage’s platform also gives The Leslie Group access to real-time data insights, empowering them to provide more tailored solutions and strengthen their role as valued and trusted advisors in a rapidly changing benefits industry.
Clients can also choose to bundle their digital group benefits and pension plan management with Collage’s online HR platform for a fully unified people management solution.
For The Leslie Group, this is a foundational partnership behind their goal to continue to provide leading technology products and solutions to their clients. Shawn Leslie, President and CEO of The Leslie Group, says “At The Leslie Group we believe that technology is fundamental to our mission to provide the best benefits advice and client experience available to Canadian businesses. After surveying the options available it was clear to us that partnering with Collage puts us in the best position to deliver superior value to our clients.”
The Leslie Group has also acquired the benefits brokerage clients of Collage effective September 1st, 2018. This acquisition will see The Leslie Group continue with its objective to become Canada’s leading independent employee consulting firm, and it also formalizes Collage’s shift from being a tech-enabled broker to being a fully-aligned technology partner to brokers across Canada.
Since its launch in late 2016 and backed by top fintech investors and financial institutions, Collage has provided leading HR and benefits management solutions to hundreds of Canadian businesses.
For Collage, this partnership is strong endorsement of the Collage platform and the value offered by the company’s Advisor Partner Program. The program, launched in 2018, equips benefits advisors with proven technology to enrich their client experience and grow their business
Elijah Moore, CEO of Collage says, “This strategic partnership is a significant endorsement of our goal to be the technology that powers leading benefits advisors in Canada. We are thrilled to be working closely with The Leslie Group to provide more value to Canadian businesses.”
