Industrial Alliance Launches Its New Secure Website for Group Savings and Retirement Plan Sponsors

Quebec City, QC (Nov. 6, 2014) – Industrial Alliance has launched the new version of its secure website for group savings and retirement plan sponsors.

Pursuant to its goal to always put the client first, Industrial Alliance has made it easier to manage group savings and retirement plans to allow plan sponsors to more easily perform tasks in line with their administrative responsibilities.

“Our choices with respect to developing the content and features of the new site, and ensuring it is user-friendly are based on a circular approach. At each major step, we validate our progress with our clients. Their collaboration is essential, as our priority is to provide them with a tool that, first and foremost, meets their needs”, explains Renée Laflamme, Vice-President, Group Savings and Retirement.

Thus, plan sponsors will now administer their plans using a streamlined, intuitive dashboard that takes them to the tasks they wish to perform. The dynamic aspect of this new site allows plan sponsors to see their changes and to better control the operations they perform in the website and with respect to plan administration.

The secure plan sponsor site will be updated regularly. More sophisticated reports and statistics will allow clients to assess how their group retirement plans are being used and to implement strategies to encourage plan members to save even more for retirement. Help sections will also be added to guide plan sponsors in their daily tasks.
