A benefits system firm is turning to an outside company to help it add analytical tools for consumers.

Workscape Inc., Marlborough, Mass., says Asparity Decision Solutions Inc., Durham, N.C., will be developing decision support and data services for employers that use Workscape to administer their benefits programs.

Asparity tools will include medical cost and flexible spending account calculators and modules to help workers estimate the effects of health savings accounts on their income taxes.
