Background

Strong Roots. Stronger Results.

Pentra represents the next phase of growth and evolution of Integrated Benefit Services, Inc. (IBS). Our firm was founded 27 years ago with an uncompromising commitment to excellence serving middle market organizations. Since that time, we have grown in capability and capacity such that we can provide world class consulting services to clients of any size. We have typically been retained by organizations willing to focus on health as an economic strategy. Our culture is built around a passion to serve, and we demand that our team deliver highly competent technical advice along with superb strategic and tactical execution.

Our Mission

Our mission remains the same as when the firm was founded 27 years ago – to help our clients manage all aspects of their health & welfare benefit plan offerings.

We made the decision to change our name to Pentra to reflect our process. We combine deep technical consulting expertise with a broad-based understanding and appreciation for the challenges our clients face. Our recommendations always consider the five critical elements that our clients must solve for with every benefit decision they make. These elements include: design, funding, administration, communication and compliance.

The name Pentra is derived from the Greek root penta which means five or containing five.

Our Core Values

Strong values have always guided our interactions with our clients, their employees and each other. These core values guide us in our interactions and serve as the foundation for how we behave.

  • Integrity
  • Excellence
  • Compassion
  • Dedication
  • Accountability

In times of enormous change and uncertainty, we have found these values to help us maintain our commitment to serve.
