The Standard Becomes Exclusive Distributor of Navigator Mobile – An Innovative Digital Employee Benefit Communications Tool

Mobile tool provides employees easy, 24/7 access to benefit information

PORTLAND, Ore. — Sept. 25, 2018 — Standard Insurance Company (The Standard), a leading provider of financial products and services, announced today that it will exclusively distribute an innovative digital solution developed by Navigate Communications (Navigate). The Navigator Mobile tool enables employees to access their benefit information at any time, from anywhere. Steven Clark, founder and former CEO of Navigate, has joined The Standard, helping the company integrate this new digital capability and enhance the customer experience.


Typical employee benefit communications can be complex and confusing, often located on employers’ internal websites and not available on mobile devices. This can result in employees who don’t understand the benefits they have, or even the basics of how to access them.


Navigator Mobile provides employees with access to all their employer benefit information and resources in a simple and engaging, consolidated, 24/7 accessible mobile tool that is fully branded in their employer’s look and feel. Navigator Mobile’s capabilities and ease of use enable employees to better understand their benefits, improve their experience using them, and better appreciate the benefit package provided by their employer.


“We’re excited to bring the Navigate solution to our customers,” said Dan McMillan, vice president of Employee Benefits at The Standard. “At The Standard, we’re focused on finding innovative ways to make benefits easier to administer for employers and easier to understand and access for employees, and this is just one example. You’ll be hearing more from us on this topic in the months to come.”


The Navigator Mobile tool, already in use by several customers of The Standard, will now be available exclusively to employers doing business with The Standard. Existing Navigate customers will have the option to continue their subscription through The Standard.


“I’m excited to be part of The Standard as well as to have the Navigate solution offered to our broader customer base,” said Clark. “I believe Navigator Mobile will enhance the digital customer experience and differentiate The Standard in the marketplace. Throughout my career, I’ve focused on delivering value to customers. I made a conscious decision to join The Standard because we share customer-focused values, and I look forward to helping the company integrate these tools as we move forward together.”
