5 Reasons to Introduce Simply Benefits to your Clients
Author: Simply Benefits Marketing
If you’re an insurance advisor that has been around for a while, you may not be sure about switching your clients over to somebody new. However, unlike a lot of new employee benefits companies, we value advisors and want to work with them.
That’s why we designed an advisor platform that offers amazing features like digital master applications, easy census upload, customizable plan design creation, and more. We want to make sure advisors have the most user-friendly experience possible. But our platform isn’t just great for you, it’s also great for your clients.
Here are 5 reasons why you shouldn’t wait to introduce us to your clients.
1. 100% Digital From Start to Finish
At the core of Simply Benefits is our mission to digitize the employee benefits process from start to finish. We have achieved this by offering unique online platforms for employees, employers, and advisors.
You start on the advisor platform with a digital master application and plan design. Once completed, you can send them off to your client to review with the click of a button. Once your client reviews and e-signs, they then have access to their own admin platform. Some features on your client’s (admin) platform include the ability to digitally enroll employees, send email and push notifications, and update their employees’ account information.
Once digitally enrolled, employees can begin accessing and managing their benefits. This includes the ability to digitally view coverage, submit claims, view usage, and more.
Still not convinced about going digital? Well, not only is going digital much faster and more convenient, going paperless is also great for the environment. A simple, digital platform will attract more clients (and their employees), and it will be a distinct advantage compared to companies that still have long paper processes.
2. Faster & Easier
We know that life is busy, that’s why we set out to make one aspect of all three Simply Benefits platforms to be as fast as possible. All of our processes are faster than the industry average, with some being almost 200x faster. With us, you won’t have to worry about waiting 30 days to get a quote or to have your clients enrolled. You can have your clients up and running in minutes after e-signing, which is something everyone will appreciate.
On top of being fast, our platform is also easy to use and understand. Employers can easily enroll their employees by sending out an automatic email with a unique link to each employees’ digital enrollment form. Employers can track on their platform which employees have enrolled, which are pending, and which are late applicants. This lets employers and their admins easily get everyone up and running without any headaches.
Our platform also makes it easy for employers to check reports, and send push notifications to all their employees at once from anywhere. This is a huge selling point for employers who don’t have a lot of industry knowledge because it means that they won’t have to stress about the details, and can focus on running their business.
3. White Label Options
One of the features that makes us unique is our white label option for businesses called Simply Benefits Enterprise. Companies can fully customize the Simply Benefits platform with their colours, and logo. This is an easy sell for larger employers who want their brand to carry through to their benefits. Simply Benefits Enterprise will also give your clients a custom domain and login, which will be important for employers who want a seamless, branded login experience.
Our white label options also extend to advisors through Simply Benefits Partnership. If as an advisor, you want to market your brokerage through a branded version of Simply Benefits, you can! It works the same as Enterprise in which you can customize the Simply Benefits experience with your logo for your clients to see and use as your own, from start to finish.
4. Limitless Possibilities
As a Third Party Payer (TPP), we don’t hold any insurance risk but work to offer advisors the best price for all plan designs. Our product was designed to accommodate many different plan designs and funding platforms that can fit any organization’s needs, no matter the size.
On top of offering traditional plan designs, we also offer flexible options for modern employee benefits like HSAs and LSAs which are growing in popularity among employees. However, a lot of employers make the mistake of offering flexible employee benefits without an easy to use platform for employees, so a combination of our flexible plans with our digital platform makes for a very attractive option for companies.
Employers will likely turn to you to help decide which of these will work best for their company, but they will appreciate the flexibility and different options available to them. Plus, for you, designing these plans is a breeze thanks to our online plan design feature.
5. Partnerships and Add Ons
At Simply Benefits, we understand how important mental health and wellbeing is in the workplace. That’s why we are proud to be partnered with the best in the industry. With Simply Benefits, your clients will have access to our partners that provide coverage for mental health, wellness, and virtual care so their employees will be covered no matter what.
We offer an extremely affordable Employee Family Assistance Program EFAP through HumanaCare that only costs employers on average $3.00 per month. When compared to the importance of EFAPs to employees, it’s an easy sell especially when you consider HumanaCare’s simple and user-friendly platform.
Our partner, HEAL, focuses on making wellness in the workplace fun, and they do this through wellness challenges and things called ‘Lunch and Learns’ — where you eat lunch and learn about wellness activities. Challenges are a fun way to compete with your coworkers and be healthy.
Finally, virtual care is becoming extremely important among employers. We are proud to partner with Wello, a virtual care provider. Especially because of the effects of the pandemic, employees are seeing the value in virtual care. If your clients want to include that in their benefits plan, it’s simple and easy through Wello.
At Simply Benefits, we believe that the employee benefits process should be digital and easy to use. If this sounds like it would work well with your business, we have created a ton of materials that you can give to your clients that details the whole Simply Benefits experience.
