San Francisco, CA, April 22, 2014 -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- Navera announced today that the company has finalized a reseller agreement with Hanna Global Solutions (HGS), a full-service employee benefits administration firm. Navera provides cloud-based education and decision support products that help individuals and their families make well-informed decisions about their benefits and insurance options.
According to the agreement finalized early this year, HGS will incorporate Navera’s interactive animated education and decision support (EDS) into its online employee self-service benefits enrollment system (BES) and use Navera to further differentiate its proprietary benefits enrollment system in the marketplace.
“Navera stands apart from other education and decision support tools we looked at. At one end, videos with actors provide a very static approach and, at the other end, calculators are input driven, but aren’t engaging. Navera takes a unique approach to benefits education with animated storytelling that reflects user input to provide demographic and plan-specific information in an entertaining way—which we like,” said Hanna Global Solutions CEO Mathew Augustine, GPHR, REBC. “We also like the fact that Navera is an early-stage company. We like the idea of partnering with earlier-stage companies rather than those that are already ‘set in their ways’—this is only the beginning of what we’ll be seeing from Navera as we both learn from the market and improve our offerings to meet growing and changing market needs. We are innovative and nimble; this partnership adds to our agility,” Mr. Augustine added.
“We’re pleased to partner with Hanna Global Solutions and have already delivered a complete solution to an HGS customer, driving higher employee participation in voluntary benefits and increased satisfaction with the overall enrollment process,” stated Navera CEO Steve L. Adams. “By integrating with the HGS enrollment system, we’re able to provide employees with a seamless enrollment experience, from engagement and education through decision support and enrollment. Partnering is only meaningful if it results in tangible benefits to employers and employees, and we believe strongly that this relationship results in just that.”
