SimplyBiz's Zest wins Licence Agreement with Aviva 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 five year contract with Aviva plc ("Aviva").


Aviva, a leading multinational insurance company and a member of the FTSE 100 Index, has selected Zest to deliver a new benefits solution designed to meet modern workplace requirements at an affordable cost for their small and mid sized clients.  


Under the terms of the five-year contract, 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.

"We are delighted that Aviva has taken the decision to select Zest. 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.


"Following our recent agreement with Taylor Wimpey, we are delighted to see Aviva, another leading household name, join our growing portfolio of clients and partners."
