SimplyBiz's Zest Wins Licence Agreement with Taylor Wimpey plc


SimplyBiz Group (AIM:SBIZ), a leading independent provider of compliance and business services to financial advisers and financial institutions in the UK, announces that Zest, its state-of-the-art, next generation employee benefits technology platform, has signed a three year contract with Taylor Wimpey plc ("Taylor Wimpey").

Taylor Wimpey, one of the largest UK-focused residential developers, and a member of the FTSE 100 Index, has selected Zest to deliver its innovative employee benefits package to more than 5000 employees.  


Under the terms of the contract, the Zest solution will provide its modern, flexible, and independent software that is quick to set up, easy to maintain and simple to use. Following a multi-year investment programme, Zest's SaaS technology offers a high-quality employee experience whilst reducing administrative burden.  Zest's tailored software platform has been configured and delivered to Taylor Wimpey.



Matt Timmins, Co-CEO of SimplyBiz, commented:


"We are delighted that Taylor Wimpey has engaged us to power its employee benefits offering via a multi-year agreement with Zest. Taylor Wimpey has an award-winning and well-defined process for delivering and administering employee benefits, and our technology and services are the ideal fit for their requirements.


"Taylor Wimpey is widely recognised by the likes of Glassdoor as being one of the best companies to work for in the UK. The fact that they have appointed Zest to help them to maintain their strong reputation through the implementation of our world-class employee benefits platform is a significant endorsement of the Zest solution.


"It is also pleasing to see another large company and household name joining our growing roster of clients."
