:
Benefits deserve better.

Companies today are putting more ingenuity and resources into the benefits they offer. But there’s still an underlying problem: employees don’t use their benefits to the full extent. That’s because benefits have become increasingly difficult to understand, use, and manage.

Evive fixes that.

First, we fix access. The Evive platform threads together a company’s entire benefits portfolio into an integrated ecosystem. This makes access seamless, clear, and instantaneous. Half the battle.

Next, we fix utilization. Evive helps increase benefits utilization by pushing personalized reminders―we call them nudges―to prompt action at the relevant moment.

When benefits work like this, something great happens: people use them.

Evive: the right mix

The right

platform

Evive isn’t just a hub for benefits. It’s a suite of solutions for getting more out of your benefits investments, whether your focus is controlling costs, reducing risk, or improving experiences. Want to do all three? We’re here for it.

The right

moment

Evive data sets are updated continuously―even daily in some cases―enabling our predictive analytics to accurately identify which benefits an employee needs and when. This triggers a relevant nudge delivered at just the right time.

The right

way

Anchored in principles of behavioral science, each personalized nudge is crafted to optimize the potential for employee action. The nudge is delivered via web portal, mobile app, or direct mail based on employee preference and past response.

Two friends, one big idea:

Fix benefits

As colleagues in the healthcare industry in 2007, Evive co-founders Peter Saravis and Prashant Srivastava recognized a problem: healthcare was moving toward a consumer model, but little in the industry was consumer-friendly. This was particularly true with healthcare benefits. Employers were spending more and more to offer competitive benefits, yet employee utilization remained frustratingly low.

Peter and Prashant saw benefits as their big opportunity―and challenge. Their vision: boldly transform the experience of using benefits, leveraging big data and the emerging science of predictive analytics.

Today, Evive’s solutions empower millions of people to take full advantage of their benefits―from healthcare and 401(k) to employer-offered discounts and other perks. The result? More value for everyone. Bring on the love.

Hear Peter Saravis and Prashant Srivastava share Evive’s founding vision and how it’s even more relevant today.
