Summary

October was a big month for Flare app development. From benefits plans, to member status and interactive tools within the app. We’ve got the lowdown on the latest release for Android and iOS, so let’s jump in.

Maximising savings through our customised Benefits Plan

We’re thrilled to launch our Benefits Plan within the Flare app. The annual benefits plan is a customisable and educational way for your people to engage with their workplace benefits and receive savings estimates across major household expenses. From everyday spending, to health cover, devices and transportation.
 
Employees can boost their take-home pay by up to 8% through pre-tax and post-tax savings.

Unlock additional savings with points

Points can now be earned in the Flare app for participating in employee benefit plans. There are four levels of membership status, ranging from Silver to Diamond, reserved for the most savvy members.

Employees with benefits are shown to be 66% more likely to apply their talents effectively at work and demonstrate a 30% increased level of enthusiasm to come to work*. When your people engage with benefits, they become more engaged within the workplace.

By accruing points within the Flare app, users can rise through the Benefits Club Status Levels, gaining access to additional savings and exclusive offers.

New to the Flare app is a digital end-to-end process where your your employees can discover about the benefits of novated leasing with an easy to use savings estimator – in under a minute.

Just select the vehicle type and budget, and you’ll see the total savings that can be realised over the lease term. We created this savings estimator to highlight the benefits of going green by calculating the savings from switching to an electric vehicle (i.e. paying no FBT, only available through a novated lease).

To help users get an instant quote on the vehicle they are seeking, we’ve also integrated a click-to-call feature into the app. So now you can chat with a leasing consultant about a solution that works for you.

If you’re a business currently using the Flare app but not signed yet up to offer novated leasing to your workforce, contact our employer activation team today. It’s free and is the largest savings you can pass onto your employees.

Flare-exclusive health cover offers

Flare has partnered with Compare Club to provide exclusive health cover offers for Flare customers across a range of leading brands like AHM, Australian Unit, NIB, Peoplecare and more.
 
Our exclusive offers vary each month but can offer up to 8 weeks’ free cover, discounted policies and waived waiting periods – saving on average $300 per annual policy for your people**.
