QUEBEC CITY, July 17, 2014 /CNW Telbec/ - Industrial Alliance's Group Savings and Retirement sector was recognized for the excellence of its achievements in communications and marketing, receiving six awards from the Insurance & Financial Communicators Association (IFCA), an international association specializing in the insurance and financial services industry.

Industrial Alliance was particularly recognized for its online service offer, with its completely redesigned and cutting‑edge website for group savings and retirement plan members winning the Best of Show Award. The site lets members easily monitor their retirement savings through a streamlined, intuitive interface. Its new online enrolment tool provides instantaneous plan enrolment in just a few clicks, and its video clips are an upbeat way for members to find additional information.

"We are focused on making processes quick and easy for our clients, from the time they enrol in the plan to the day‑to‑day monitoring of their objectives. All our solutions are designed to help them have a singular experience as they plan for their retirement," stated Renée Laflamme, Vice-President, Group Savings and Retirement. "These marks of recognition speak to our commitment to give our clients the best possible support in their financial preparation for retirement."

Industrial Alliance also received awards for its new guaranteed retirement income product and for its very user‑friendly iPad app for portfolio lifecycles.
