The partnership helps enterprises more effectively service the retirement plan ecosystem through a forward-looking solution
New York, NY — March 10, 2021— Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. today announced a partnership with Vestwell, the digital recordkeeping platform, for ftwilliam.com, Wolters Kluwer’s cloud-based software supporting retirement service providers. The partnership will offer users a complete Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution to help third party administrators (TPAs) with recordkeeping services to modernize their businesses.
Wolters Kluwer’s ftwilliam.com customers can now streamline recordkeeping for their clients through a joint solution using Vestwell recordkeeping software and services. “The TPA and recordkeeping industries have long been plagued by outdated technology,” said Chris Sullivan, Vice President and General Manager for the Transactional and Retirement Portfolio for Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory U.S. “Together, Vestwell and ftwilliam.com are leveraging modern technology to increase efficiency and differentiation while driving down back office costs. Through this partnership, we can deliver a true end-to-end offering that elevates the process and the user experience.”
ftwilliam.com is a leading provider of plan document, 5500, and discrimination testing software to TPAs, many of whom also conduct their own recordkeeping, while Vestwell licenses enterprise recordkeeping SaaS solutions to help financial institutions more effectively power their retirement plans. The partnership between the two companies will provide a significant lift for those looking to enhance their core competencies, drive efficiencies, and reduce their cost-to-serve across the entire ecosystem.
“We are thrilled to be formalizing our longstanding relationship with Wolters Kluwer as we continue to modernize the retirement plan industry together,” said Aaron Schumm, Founder & CEO of Vestwell. “Through our relationship with ftwilliam.com, we look forward to bringing regional and super-regional TPA-recordkeepers a modern operating system to scale their back office, expand their breadth of services, and differentiate themselves in a crowded marketplace.”
