ApexEdge Now Included in YouDecide’s Voluntary Benefits & Corporate Discounts Platform, Realizes 81% Success Rate for Customers


BOSTON, May 18, 2021 – ApexEdge, a partner-enablement platform that offers monthly bill and subscription management solutions to support the financial health of consumers, announced today its integration with YouDecide, the leading Voluntary Benefits Outsourcing® (VBO) firm in the marketplace, to enable YouDecide’s corporate clients to help their employees save money on recurring monthly and service bills through ApexEdge. To date, 81 percent of those employees who have utilized ApexEdge through YouDecide have realized savings on their bills. According to CNBC, the pandemic has made benefits top-of-mind for U.S. employees and “more than 70 percent of employees plan to spend more time reviewing voluntary benefit options offered by their employer.” Additionally, many Americans regularly overpay for their monthly home service bills, like cellular, internet, streaming services and home security. Recognizing this opportunity, YouDecide integrated ApexEdge’s solution, through its partner program, into its online and mobile Voluntary Benefits & Corporate Discounts platform to deliver ApexEdge’s Billshark bill negotiation services for its members across the nation. This helps those organizations further support their employees’ financial wellness journeys by generating meaningful savings on their behalf. “Employees are increasingly considering both their physical health as well as their financial health when evaluating their employers,” said Hilari Marshall, Director of Discount Partner Relations at YouDecide. “By adding the bill negotiation capabilities of ApexEdge into our powerful integrated solution, we create a true ‘win-win’ for both companies and their employees – supporting a healthy workforce while also allowing companies to better recruit talented professionals.” “We’re excited to announce the integration of our bill negotiation services into YouDecide’s voluntary benefits solution,” said Steve McKean, Co-Founder and CEO of ApexEdge. “Combining the benefits of both physical and financial health, we’ve served nearly 1,000 employees on behalf of YouDecide users, helping these companies generate an average savings of $282 annually per bill for their employees.” ApexEdge is an enablement platform that offers simple and accessible actionable intelligence solutions to help customers reduce stress and regain control of their financial lives.
