Ascensus, a retirement plan and college savings services provider, has announced a technological overhaul which will include a redesign of its retirement plan and participant websites expected to be unveiled at the end of the first quarter. The initiative will begin with the launch of a new www.ascensus.com  

The new website will offer an enhanced user-experience allowing visitors to self-identify before seeing relevant products, services and savings plan information. The site will also feature a newsroom section where users can access the latest on company news, thought leadership, and savings industry regulatory updates. Current clients will have access to a login portal.

“We wanted to provide concise, easy-to-understand information to help our website visitors make sound decisions,” says Roberta Hess, vice president of marketing and communications. “Our approach is simple by design, helping Americans confidently save for their futures.”

CEO Bob Guillocheau adds, “As we head into 2017 and continue to grow our organization, it’s imperative that we maintain our focus on the value that we provide to our clients in helping them save for retirement, college, and health care. We listened hard to what our clients were asking of us with our upcoming digital initiatives—the new solutions are truly being built with our clients in mind.”

The new corporate website is designed to reflect the company’s retirement, college, and health savings account services, while helping partners and clients connect with Ascensus’ team of experts.

These updates follow the firm’s recent launch of its Web-based SEP and Simple IRA program. It also recently released a health-savings account (HSA) investment platform for banks and credit unions as well as a commission-based solution 

“The new Ascensus.com is just the first in a series of enhancements that we’re excited to provide to both current and prospective clients,” says Guillocheau. “All of us at Ascensus are looking forward to what we plan to accomplish in 2017 as our company continues to grow.”
