In a Press release earlier today advo outlined important changes.

New technology with a new look.

This year advo are 20 years young!

To celebrate our 20th birthday advo has a new look and exciting new modules to complement our technology proposition. This allows SMEs and small corporates access to benefit management and communication, previously the preserve of larger PLCs.

In 1997 the current CEO, Larry Bulmer set up an office and started giving Private Clients and Companies independent advice. Twenty years later advo are recognised as one of the UK’s leading, and largest independently owned, employee benefit advisories.

In addition to employee benefits, advo now offer HR & Payroll, complementing the services already available to employers and employees. Underpinned by in-house technology, advo offer tailored employer services delivered by highly trained staff ‘advonians’.

Larry Bulmer commented on the reasons behind advo’s continued success “our approach is to embrace technology, blend with traditional broker-services making client-experience better, with lower client-fees; a philosophy to be different and invaluable.”

advo has ambitious plans over the next five years in both size and the delivery of linked-technology to SMEs. A new mission statement ‘solutions for the future; delivered today, protecting tomorrow’ underpins advo’s commitment to people and technology.

Following the rebrand, different advo services are recognisable through their own distinct colours, making it easier to distinguish between areas of expertise creating linked-employer services.

advo has offered technology platforms since 2006 allowing effective multi-benefit management and easy access to benefits. From today, advo is introducing a new concept, ‘advo online plus’, by allowing smaller employers to offer flexible choices to staff, through personal amendments and lifestyle benefit selection.

Gill Mateo, Operations Director stated that advo online plus is “a new approach to delivering employee engagement. It’s easy to implement, within the reach of every employer and is sure to be a hit with staff”.  She added “employers are searching for ways to retain staff and increase appreciation of benefits, for this advo online plus will be an invaluable tool.”

Lucy Pearce, head of employee benefits added ‘”it’s a great addition to an already fantastic proposition backed up by an incredible team of people.”

Notes to editors:

advo is a business advisory encompassing employee benefits, technology platforms, private clients, payroll, auto-enrolment services and HR consultancy. advo advises over 1000 UK and overseas employers and over 500 Private Clients.

With the Investors in People Gold accreditation, advo invests heavily in training and support for all their staff to ensure advo clients receive the best of what they need.

Their in-house benefit technology is advo online. As the communication hub for everything it creates simplicity for clients. It’s quick and easy, saves time, looks good and gives control and employee choice. Payroll management is through HMRC accredited systems.

advo online plus, the new staff platform launched today, allows employers who have not previously been able to deliver employee choice due to time or money, access to their own benefits platform.
