Uniondale, NY (PRWEB) December 3, 2004
OnlineBenefits, Inc., provider of Internet-based HR solutions, announced that BenergyÂ has been launched for its first two employers in South Africa. Benergy is a multiple award-winning employee communication portal used by over 4,000 companies and 900,000 employees in the U.S.
Informion, a U.S. broker with offices in South Africa, the U.K. and Australia, partnered with OnlineBenefits to bring Benergy into the South African market. ÂService is what itÂs all about for South African brokers. When we started using Benergy here in the U.S, the light bulb went off,Â said Steve VanDerWatt, Principal of Informion. South Africa was a prime candidate for the employee portal because the South African benefits market is virtually identical to AmericaÂs and currently there are no technology vendors in the HR arena delivering such Web-based solutions.
OnlineBenefits went through a rigorous process to prepare Benergy for the nuances of South African benefit programs and terminology. The product became market-ready in September and has additional clients who are preparing to launch their Benergy sites. Informion has been busy signing up benefit brokers who have been remarkably receptive to bringing the product to customers.
ÂBenergy has been very well-received in South Africa. Brokers are anxious to differentiate themselves from their competition while providing a great value-added service for their clients,Â said Alan Cohen, CEO of OnlineBenefits. ÂWe are very excited about this first step of the global expansion of Benergy and have our eyes on other uncharted international destinations.Â
