NFP Announces NFP Marketplace, A Private Exchange Partnership With Bswift

NEW YORK, Sept. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NFP, a leading provider of benefits, insurance and wealth management services, announced today the launch of NFP Marketplace, a private exchange powered by bswift's technology platform. bswift is a leader in technology and service solutions for employee benefits administration and has partnered with NFP since the launch of NFP's benefits administration division in 2008.


NFP Marketplace is designed to manage costs for employers and offer competitive benefit options for employees. bswift's proven technology, developed during the past 13 years, includes:
  • A defined contribution platform for employers and employees
  • Shopping tools, decision support and enrollment for employees
  • Employer tools including reporting, dashboards and alerts
  • Broker / consultant tools, including proprietary analytics
  • Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) files and transmissions to carriers and payroll
  • Financial management including consolidated billing

Ed O'Malley, president of NFP's Corporate Client Group, stated, "It is extremely important that we position ourselves to support the needs of clients across a large spectrum of benefit options. With bswift's proven track record of empowering both traditional employer-directed plans and private exchanges, NFP offers a full range of services and functionality, from decision support and shopping tools for employees, to reliable billing reports and services for employers and carriers. There is still quite a bit of confusion in the market and we look forward to providing our clients and their customers a private exchange that addresses the administrative complexities that are too often overlooked by less experienced providers in this space." 

bswift CEO Rich Gallun remarked, "NFP is one of our most valued partners. Working together during the past several years, I have witnessed first-hand the quality of their work. Their knowledge of the industry, coupled with their grasp of the bswift platform, has allowed them to quickly become a significant player in the benefits administration space. The launch of the NFP Marketplace is a natural next step for NFP and we are excited that bswift is their platform of choice. NFP Marketplace will help employers manage benefit costs and increase employee satisfaction in the increasingly competitive landscape for attracting and retaining talent. With their expertise and our proven technology, we expect a strong future for exchanges of this type and leaders like NFP that are getting a head start in the changing world of health care and benefits."
