If you’re an insurance advisor that's been around for a while, you may be unsure about switching clients over to someone new. We know good advisors, give good advice and are our lifeblood.
We designed an advisor platform that offers amazing features like digital master applications, easy census upload, and customizable plan design creation. Our goal is to make sure advisors have the most user-friendly experience possible while simplifying benefits management for your clients.
Here are 5 reasons why you shouldn’t wait to introduce us:
1. 100% Digital From Start to Finish
Simply's core mission is to digitize the employee benefits process from start to finish. We are doing so by offering unique online platforms for advisors, employers, and employees.
For advisors, the platform consists of digital master application and plan design. Once completed, they can be sent off to a client for review with the click of a button. After reviewing and e-signing, they are granted access to their own admin platform. 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 access and manage their benefits from a desktop or mobile device. This includes the ability to digitally view coverage, submit claims, and see usage.
We know that life is busy, that’s why at Simply Benefits all of our platform's processes are faster than the industry average, with some being almost 200x faster. This means no 30-day new client onboarding. Instead, have your clients up and running in minutes after the necessary documents are e-signed.
Employers can easily enroll their employees by sending out an automatic email with a unique link to each employee's digital enrollment form. They can then track which employees are enrolled, which are pending, and which are late applicants.
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 that 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. Companies can fully customize the Simply Benefits platform with their colours and logo. This feature is appealing to larger employers that want their brand to carry through to their benefits platform. The client also receives a custom domain and login, to ensure a seamless branding 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 has the same benefits as the employer option in which you can customize the platform with your personal logo and colours for clients to see.
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 their advisor 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 is in the workplace. That’s why we are proud to be partnered with the best in the industry. Your clients will have access to our partners that provide coverage for mental health, wellness, and virtual care.
We offer an Employee Family Assistance Program (EFAP) through HumanaCare that only costs employers on average $3.00 per month.
Our partner, HEAL, focuses on making wellness in the workplace fun by offering Wellness Challenges, and various 'Lunch and Learn' webinars. Challenges are a fun way to encourage healthy living among co-workers.
Finally, virtual care is becoming increasingly prominent given the circumstance presented with the global pandemic. We are proud to partner with Wello, a virtual care provider. If your clients want to include that in their benefits plan, Wello makes it quick and easy.
