Prudential Corporation Asia (Prudential) and tech company HR Easily (HReasily) today signed a partnership agreement to offer the former’s small and medium enterprise (SME) customers across Asia access to HReasily's human resource (HR) and benefits management platform.
HReasily is the first of many services that Prudential will soon make available to its SME customers on Pulse. From June 2020, Prudential's SMEs customers will have access to HReasily's cloud-based payroll, leave, claims, time and attendance, as well as HR management solutions through PruWorks.
Pulse is Prudential's app for health and wealth management, offering access to an advanced, AI-driven symptom checker, health assessment and wellness tools, as well as virtual consults with qualified doctors.
Prudential Corporation Asia Chief Executive Nic Nicandrou said, "SMEs make up more than 95% of all Asian businesses, providing two out of three private-sector jobs on the continent. Yet success is elusive, and SMEs face many obstacles on their path to success. At Prudential, we are committed to helping our SMEs owners grow the business they love. We want to make it easy for SMEs to protect their investments, run their businesses and care for their employees. Through Pulse, we will provide access to the best-in-class suite of tools specifically built for SMEs. Hence why we are delighted to welcome HReasily as a partner in our growing ecosystem for SMEs."
Pascal Henry, CEO and co-founder of HReasily, said, "We see a great opportunity to serve a large number of SMEs with our innovative HR tools. We look forward to partnering with Prudential and joining their ecosystem to offer a holistic solution to their SMEs across Asia."
