The Hartford has extended its alliance with Intuit Inc. to offer The Hartford's XactPAY® workers' compensation premium payment options to Intuit Online Payroll customers through independent agents. In addition, Intuit Online Payroll and QuickBooks® Payroll users of all size businesses are now eligible to use XactPAY, which was previously only available to smaller businesses.
"Most business owners seek the advice and guidance of an independent agent when purchasing insurance for their companies," said Donato Monaco, vice president of payroll alliances at The Hartford. "Through this alliance, our 9,000 independent agents are now able to offer a broader spectrum of XactPAY pay-as-you-go premium billing options to their clients."
With The Hartford's XactPAY billing options, businesses pay their Hartford workers' compensation premiums as they run payroll. This eliminates the need for large up-front deposits, minimizes costly audit surprises at the end of the policy period and gives businesses greater flexibility to invest cash in other aspects of their operation throughout the policy term.
"We're pleased to extend our alliance with The Hartford to offer our Intuit Online Payroll customers who work with independent agents the pay-as-you-go billing option with XactPAY. We see this alliance with The Hartford and their agents as a tremendous benefit to our customers," said Nora Denzel, senior vice president and general manager of Intuit's Employee Management Solutions division.
Midsize and larger businesses that have workers' compensation insurance with The Hartford and use Intuit Online Payroll or QuickBooks Payroll are now eligible to use XactPAY. More than 1 million businesses currently use Intuit Payroll offerings.
