Uniondale, NY--OnlineBenefits, Inc., provider of Internet-based HR solutions, announced today that it has entered into a long-term strategic partnership with Digital Insurance to distribute Benergy as an employee communication solution for its clients.

Digital Insurance is an employee benefits service center that partners with traditional benefits brokers to handle the day-to-day account management and renewal processing of their small business clients. With the Benergy communications platform, Digital Insurance is able to fill the need for employee education and support, which is often an economic challenge for small businesses. This joint venture represents a tangible step forward in Digital Insurance's goal to redefine best-in-breed customer service in a market segment often overlooked when it comes to investment and innovation. Benergy has and continues to provide significant returns for hundreds of mid-market retail brokerage firms around the country. Through this partnership with Digital Insurance, Benergy will mark its entry into the small employer segment.

"This new channel into the small employer segment is particularly exciting because of Digital Insurance's unique approach to outsourcing combined with its growing momentum in the broker community," said Alan Cohen, CEO, OnlineBenefits, Inc.  "Our historical challenge was how to reach these smaller employers and make the process simple and cost-effective. Thanks to Digital Insurance, that challenge has been effectively addressed."

"Agencies across the country are finding it increasingly difficult to efficiently manage their smallest customers, let alone expand services to this client base," said Mike Sullivan, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer of Digital Insurance. "We will continue to invest in people, processes and technology to expand our service capability and, by proxy, that of our broker partners. Benergy helps expand the suite of services we provide our clients."

Benergy is a powerful Internet-based benefits communication portal. It provides companies with an exceptionally quick and easy way to bring information online. It compiles the most critical elements that people need to be informed, empowered benefit consumers. Benergy therefore becomes the first stop on any benefits journey. Brokers that partner with Digital Insurance will have access to this unique capability to drive a truly differentiated service capability to an expanded segment of their valued customer base.
