Rise People partners with Cowan Insurance Group for new integrated product

Digital human resources company Rise People Inc. is partnering with Cowan Insurance Group to launch an integrated product that includes human resources, payroll and insurance services.

In December 2017, Rise People launched a national sponsorship program aimed at combining its technological expertise with advice from consultants, such as Surrey, B.C.-based Davis Benefits and Pensions Ltd. and Toronto-based Hull Clearwater Pension and Benefits Inc. The latest partnership is an expansion of that program, noted Rise People in a press release.

“Our partnership is a natural next step for both companies, giving Cowan the opportunity to broaden their portfolio with proven technology that integrates with their group benefits solutions and for Rise to gain access to consulting and expertise that is unparalleled in the industry,” said Faiz Abdulla, founder and chief executive officer of Rise People.

The partnership will allow Cowan Insurance Group to blend automation into their portfolio by grouping its benefits and insurance products with a digital HR and payroll platform, helping employer clients save time and improve employee satisfaction and retention.

“Our partnership with Rise is a strategic move, allowing us to provide an entirely new level of service and innovation to our market,” said Marc Benoit, vice-president of consulting and group benefits at Cowan Insurance Group. “By offering Rise’s modern HR, payroll and insurance software platform, we’re helping our customers simplify the administrative side of people management and engage employees with more rewarding experiences.”
