Through the integration of our Harmony® enrollment system, brokers and employers who are already familiar with benefitsCONNECT® can now offer Colonial Life benefits via a seamless enrollment process
Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) October 26, 2009
Employers can save time and money with a new seamless enrollment system for core and individual voluntary benefits enrollments. Transcend Technologies Group (dba benefitsCONNECT®), a leading provider of online software applications for the health and benefits industry, now offers real-time integration of benefitsCONNECT® (http://www.benefitsconnect.net) with the Colonial Life Harmony® enrollment system. With a few clicks, employees can seamlessly enroll in a broad range of Colonial Life's insurance products--including life, disability, cancer, critical illness, hospital confinement, and accident insurance--from within benefitsCONNECT®.
Employees start in benefitsCONNECT® where they verify eligibility and census information. After this information is saved, they are directed through their benefits selection, including any Colonial Life benefits being offered, which are embedded within benefitsCONNECT® through Colonial Life's Harmony® enrollment system. After completing all elections, employees may review their election details, which are displayed in a convenient and understandable format.
"We are pleased to partner with Colonial Life to help facilitate an employee enrollment process that not only streamlines enrollment, but also reduces the administrative burden for employer groups," says Troy R. Underwood, President and CEO of Transcend. "Being able to integrate enrollment for benefit offerings from other carriers further extends the functionality of benefitsCONNECT®, which is changing the way brokers and employer groups deliver benefits."
"Through the integration of our Harmony® enrollment system, brokers and employers who are already familiar with benefitsCONNECT® can now offer Colonial Life benefits via a seamless enrollment process," says Ryan Stribling, Assistant Vice President, Enrollment Technologies at Colonial Life. "This partnership combines the leading-edge technology of both companies with Colonial Life's nationally certified benefit counselors."
benefitsCONNECT® is an advanced Software as a Service (SaaS) platform that automates and simplifies online benefits enrollment and increases efficiency through agency management, making both processes painless. EDI (electronic data interchange) services guarantee that carriers receive and process enrollment information electronically to save time and money. In addition, benefits communication tools help employer groups communicate the value of their employee benefit offerings and increase overall company satisfaction.
The benefitsCONNECT® system enables brokers to upgrade their employee groups to a powerful, streamlined, web-based enrollment and administration system that reduces Human Resources labor costs and provides a barrier-to-entry for competing brokers.
