About the BAN and Patra Alliance

Benefit Advisors Network (BAN) — a national network of independent employee benefit firms — is partnering with Patra to offer Patra’s wide range of insurance business process services to BAN’s more than 115 member agencies.

As a technology-enabled services provider for the insurance industry, Patra offers a broad set of technology-based solutions bringing efficiencies to multiple aspects of the employee benefits industry. Patra’s processing solutions provide more than 160 distinct insurance process services to its retail agencies, wholesalers, and carriers nationwide.

“Through our new partnership, BAN members will have access to Patra’s OnDemand services, as well as the opportunity to benefit from Patra’s extensive industry knowledge,” says BAN Executive Director Perry Braun. “We have done our due diligence and are thrilled to have found a highly reputable partner who will bring so much value to our members.”

According to Braun, the resources and services that Patra provides “are aligned seamlessly with BAN’s goal to offer employee benefit firms with the tools they need to grow and scale efficiently.”

“We are excited at the prospect of working closely with BAN and its members,” says Bob Murphy, Chief Revenue Officer of Patra. “Like BAN, Patra is laser focused on creating growth and efficiency for our partners in order to maximize the value of their organizations. That is the Patra advantage.”

The addition of Patra’s partnership further supports BAN’s network, where member agencies work as peers to pool their experience, industry knowledge, and data in order to streamline and maximize the growth of their businesses.

Going forward, Patra will also participate in BAN conferences.

Founded in 2002, BAN is an exclusive, premier, national network of independent, employee benefit brokerage and consulting companies. BAN delivers industry leading tools, technology, and expertise to member firms so that they can deliver optimum results to their employee benefit customers. BAN intentionally limits membership because of the highly collaborative interactions.
