SimplyBiz Group has signed a five-year contract with Aviva to deliver employee benefits to the insurance giant's small and mid-sized clients through its next-generation Zest technology platform.
Under the terms of the contract, SimplyBiz said in a statement, "Zest's modern, flexible, secure, easy-to-use platform will enable Aviva to offer businesses a means of providing staff with access to a full range of employee benefits, without having to substantially change the way they manage their workforce and operations".
In the wake of Taylor Wimpey signing a three-year contract to adopt Zest in January, SimplyBiz Group joint chief executive Matt Timmins (pictured) said: "We are delighted to see Aviva, another household name, join our growing portfolio of clients and partners."
"It is yet another significant endorsement of the Zest solution, which we believe is the most innovative, advanced and easy-to-use employee benefits platform on the market. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship with Aviva, as we continue to be a leading choice for companies looking to bring the benefits market in line with modern life and technology."
Earlier this month, SimplyBiz Group reported an 8.5% rise in membership levels over the 12 months to 31 December 2018 - from 3,433 firms to 3,726 - in its full-year results.
In relation to a year that saw it float on the Alternative Investment Market, raising £30m, the compliance and business services provider also revealed operating profit of £6.8m - down from £8.8m at the end of 2017 - after charging "IPO-related costs" of £3.6m.
