Oakland, CA – STRIVE, the national leader in employee engagement solutions, welcomes Cross Insurance as one of its newest agency partnerships. As STRIVE continues to experience exponential growth, this partnership will bring together two truly innovative companies located on opposite ends of the country. Cross Insurance is one of the largest independently owned insurance agencies in the nation.


STRIVE’s simple-to-use, quick to implement mobile platform allows deep customization for each client’s specific needs. The app delivers company benefits information and HR communication directly to employees’ phones. Whether a client wants to plug in SSO integrated telemedicine solution or one of the various options attached to their major medical coverage, STRIVE has the ability to bring in any vendor into the platform for a single click to access experience.


“We’ve reviewed many mobile employee engagement solutions and STRIVE was the clear leader. We’ve been very impressed with the implementation process and the product itself,” said Eric Jermyn, President of Cross Insurance’s benefits practice.


“Cross Insurance is an exciting new partnership for us,” said Dave Gillis, Vice President of Sales at STRIVE. “It cements our presence in the Northeast, but more importantly Cross has a compelling vision for what client experience will look like in the future. We are very proud to work with them to realize this vision.”
