Aspire and Ceridian Partner to Simplify Data Flow

October 1, 2013 ( – Aspire Financial Services, LLC, a provider of retirement plan solutions, will form a strategic relationship with payroll provider Ceridian.

The relationship will provide Ceridian and Aspire clients the capability to directly link data from Ceridian human resource and payroll accounts to Aspire’s retirement management system, resulting in automated data flow. According to the firms, this automation will reduce errors, as well as the time and effort employers spend on the operational aspects of administering retirement plans.

Backed by Aspire’s conflict-free, open-architecture platform, Ceridian human resource and payroll system users will now be able to connect to the Aspire Retirement Management System, providing clients with a seamless link from the employer’s payroll provider directly to the recordkeeper. The relationship will automate the process of calculating, recording and remitting employee contribution amounts, as well as monitoring and reporting.

“This relationship allows us to offer robust data integration, automation and data information that is shared seamlessly,” said Larry Dunivan, executive vice president, Products & Technology, Ceridian HCM. “The benefits will be vastly important to those small to mid-sized employers that are seeking administrative efficiency and a consolidated platform to manage at the employee, or participant benefits level.”
