Brokers can bring clients streamlined employee benefits enrollment platform
We’re thrilled to announce a new partnership with Colonial Life offering employees the chance to easily enroll in Colonial Life non-medical benefits during the enrollment process. See further details below.
COLUMBIA, S.C. (Oct. 5, 2016) — A new partnership between Colonial Life and Ease helps brokers deliver streamlined access to enrollment capabilities and services that can help their clients save time and money.
Ease is an all-in-one employee benefits and human resources platform that makes it simple for brokers and employers to set up and manage benefits, coordinate payroll, collaborate on new hires, changes and terminations, and deliver completed tax information — all from one location.
“By integrating our Harmony® enrollment system with Ease, brokers and employers can now offer Colonial Life benefits via a seamless enrollment process,” said Marianne Adams, assistant vice president, Enrollment Solutions at Colonial Life.”
Ease allows brokers to set up groups quickly using the platform’s plan and rate libraries, including state-specific age-banded rates for all major medical carriers. They’re also able to download census enrollment to speed up carrier underwriting. Both brokers and employers can quickly generate custom reports for initial binder check amounts, reconciled billing, payroll deductions, and more.
The platform’s capabilities make it especially valuable for smaller clients that may not have comprehensive HR systems. It includes robust payroll integrations with TRAXPayroll, Payroll City and Paylocity to cut administrative work, as well as paid leave tracking, performance reviews and goal setting for managers.
“This partnership combines Ease’s leading-edge technology with Colonial Life’s nationally certified benefit counselors,” said David Reid, Ease CEO. “Together, we’re making benefits enrollment easy and efficient for employers of all sizes.”
