Lively and Ease

Lively · August 22, 2017 · 2 min read


Lively is excited to partner with Ease and join their online benefits enrollment platform already being used by 35,000+ employers. They combine benefits, onboarding, and compliance in one simple dashboard.

Ease is an online benefits enrollment platform built for insurance brokers and employers and offering employees one destination for all their human resources information. They enable agents to easily set up and manage HR and benefit administration on behalf of their clients. Third-party implementation is simply not needed. The Ease team is equipped to train insurance agents and their staff to quickly and effectively manage their entire book of business.

Brokers are at the center of employer benefits comparisons, review, and selection process. Ease provides a fully integrated experience to help reduce broker’s time and increase options for the employer, creating efficiency for both sides of the table. In what can be a time consuming and disconnected process, they create smart value for both benefits brokers and their clients.

Ease has removed major blockers of inefficiency and inaccuracy for the benefits selection process. Like Lively, they have replaced outdated, and tedious paper enrollment systems with a paperless user centric platform that delivers a seamless broker-friendly experience.

Combing a Lively HSA with existing Ease healthcare quoting tools will help brokers provide balanced benefits offerings. With an HSA, brokers can provide the only opportunity for employees to save for health over the long term. Now, brokers and employers can offer employees intuitive, simple, and transparent HSA options through Lively. Brokers can sign up for Ease and compare benefits plans within minutes.
