Payfit, the French payroll startup, is integrating with Alan, the French health insurance startup, to provide an integrated benefits offering. French companies are now required to offer a health insurance plan to all employees and pay for at least 50 percent of the premium.
Two French startups liked each other so much that they’re now starting to see a future working together. PayFit wants to modernize the good old paychecks in France, while Alan wants to turn health insurance into software-as-a-service. If your company plans on using both, those two services now have a deep integration. The funny thing about this story is that I’ve covered both companies already, and even wrote that Alan should work with PayFit to make it easier to sign up to the two services. I’m sure both companies had already been thinking about this integration well before I suggested it as it makes a lot of sense.
