About Us

The name represents the two halves our unique DNA. We’ve built our brand on a foundation of strength and flexibility.

Core – Strength and durability; stream – flexibility and fluidity.

What We Do

Corestream is reinvigorating the voluntary benefits arena with innovation and experience. We’ve invested countless hours into developing a durable and reliable solution to address the current and future challenges of the benefits and HR sectors. Our unique tools and industry awareness allow employers to offer a rapidly expanding portfolio of benefits without being held hostage by their own technological or resource-related constraints.

A Novel Approach

For years, the voluntary benefits marketplace was an incomplete and inconvenient industry. Under-developed technologies, limited platforms and inexperienced staff made it difficult for employers to find comprehensive programs that served both employees and management efficiently.

It was the recognition of those deficiencies that brought Corestream cofounders, Zach Malone and Neil Vaswani, together in 2006. In an effort to streamline the industry, they set out to unite the most experienced benefits professionals and the most experienced technology professionals under one roof.

Having watched competing providers build their programs from a foundation of only voluntary benefits experience, Vaswani and Malone knew that the industry’s technological tools needed to be more than just a band-aid – they needed to be a real solution, and an asset moving forward.

That knowledge created an opportunity to provide clients with top-notch services and solutions – to bring both sides of the industry to one company.

Innovation and Experience

We offer a variety of solutions and services on the same platform including: the ability to bill multiple benefits through one payroll slot; fully white-labeled portal and enrollment solutions that employers can call their own; a full-service employee discount program that features an ever-expanding list of retailers; and most recently, an online, real-time automobile insurance quote comparison app that enables the user to get an instant group auto insurance quote from Liberty Mutual, MetLife and Travelers.

We make it easy for employers to have a scalable solution in their hands to expand the breadth and depth of voluntary benefits for their employees, while also expanding the definition of what benefits really means.
