WORKTERRA and Clear Concepts Consulting Group Enter Strategic Partnership

Pleasanton, California (EastBayDaily) — EBS’s WORKTERRA and Clear Concepts Consulting Group signed a strategic partnership agreement during Spring 2013 allowing Clear Concepts to move its client base to the WORKTERRA platform for benefits management. Floyd County Board of Education and the Barrow County School System, both of Georgia, have already completed the transition and will conduct open enrollment on the platform this fall.

“The WORKTERRA platform is a very sophisticated benefits management tool, that is a real workhorse! It supports not only enrollment, but also ongoing administration of all the benefits our clients manage. This includes support for billing, carrier transmittals, eligibility and rules policing, payroll interface, and reporting functions to support ACA requirements. The transition for our clients in mid-year has been very smooth and the support form EBS during the process has been all we could ask for. We are truly excited about our partnership and the extensive capabilities we can now deliver to our clients.” – Eric Kiesshauer, President of Clear Concepts Consulting Group

“We are excited to have Clear Concepts onboard as a partner. With Clear Concepts’ strong presence in education throughout the Georgia market and WORKTERRA’s industry leading technology we feel the synergies provide a great solution to our clients and a partnership that will continue to be extremely successful.” David Rhodes, President and CEO of WORKTERRA
