New Website Helps Third Party Administrators be More Efficient
TPAs help design new site from The Principal
December 19, 2012 (Des Moines, Iowa) — If you want to know what third party professionals (TPAs) want, ask them. That is exactly how the Principal Financial Group® created a new website designed to make life easier for TPAs.
The new website, available only to TPAs who work with The Principal®, is loaded with features that help make it easier for TPAs to manage clients' retirement plans online.
"As part of our ongoing commitment to TPA's, we developed the new site based on their feedback to meet their specific needs as they manage clients' plans," said Jeff Schreiber, vice president of TPA business development at The Principal. "TPAs and financial professionals are at the core of our service model and so we are focused on helping them be as efficient as possible."
The website features more of the information and transactional capabilities TPAs need to administer plans more efficiently. TPAs will be able to more easily handle:
- plan and participant transactions
- plan compliance testing
- government filing information and
- other key day-to-day tasks
"The new website represents a significant investment of time and resources — another example of our commitment to helping the TPAs better serve financial professionals and their clients," said Schreiber. To view a demonstration of the new site, contact the Principal TPA Edge Service Team at 800.958.5124.
The TPA site was launched following the first Principal TPA Edge SalesSM Academy. TPAs from across the country attended the two-day long event, which gave them a chance to network and attend training sessions to boost sales expertise. The academy is part of the Principal TPA EdgeSM program of services and tools designed specifically to help TPAs develop and manage their businesses.
