RIMOUSKI, QC, Nov. 5, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - Magik-Net and The Empire Life Insurance Company (Empire Life), a leading Canadian life insurer, have established a collaboration to develop an application program interface (API) that enables third party administrators (TPAs) to complete tasks associated with the administration of their customers' benefit plans. Magik-Net and Empire Life are pioneering the ground-breaking technology in the group benefits industry to make it easier and faster for third party administrators to transfer data and provide real-time connectivity to administer benefit plans.
"We're thrilled to collaborate with Empire Life and look forward to expanding our relationship," said Marc Giguère, General Manager of Magik-Net. "We think this will bring a whole new level of business opportunity for Empire Life, Magik-Net and our mutual clients. "

"Working with Magik-Net to securely transfer data directly to Empire Life back-end systems will greatly enhance the experience for TPAs in our mutual network."
