Ease, a leading HR and benefits software solution for small businesses, insurance brokers, and insurance carriers, has partnered with VSP Vision Care, the only national not-for-profit vision benefits company in the United States, to provide brokers and HR administrators with better access to core employee benefits.
“Through our collaboration with Ease, we’re excited to provide benefits through an enhanced digital experience,” said Ken Stellmacher, vice president of commercial markets for VSP Vision Care. “Brokers and clients will be able to pair the customized, health-centered vision benefits they know and trust from VSP with greater simplicity in administering and managing employee enrollment.”
With this connection, VSP Vision Care will become Ease’s latest EaseConnect+ partner, enabling brokers to safely and securely submit enrollment data and changes directly from Ease to VSP Vision Care. Clients now have round-the-clock access to information and an easier, modern way of updating their benefit selections to best fit their needs.
“Ease is proud and excited to collaborate with VSP Vision Care and their dynamic team as we partner to address the current challenges and changes within the insurance industry,” said David Reid, CEO of Ease. “Our partnership will help create a better employee benefits experience; beyond that, it’s a wonderful opportunity for both brokers and their clients as well.”
