Employee Benefits Platform bswift Updated

bswift employee benefitsLeading employee benefits administrator bswift has announced the release of its updated Software-as-a-Service platform which includes several new features including:

• A redesigned user interface optimized for use with new full and mobile browsers that have appeared over the past couple of years.

• Enhancements to Exchanges, improving the overall experience of benefits shopping and using bswift’s BestFit Plan Advisor too.

• Numerous incremental upgrades and additional features improving aspects of the platform including enrollment, benefit eligibility transitions, automation, fulfillment, and benefit administration tools.

• Transparency tools for electronic data interchange (EDI) workflow and operations.

“Our goal was to provide employees and administrators a great user experience based on simplicity, ease-of-use, elegance, and speed,” noted Shawn Calvert, bswift Director, User Experience. “The new design is more visually appealing and user-friendly, reflecting current usability standards and user research from bswift’s extensive client base. It also features our first wave of input, table and button enhancements to enable cross-browser and cross-device compatibility, helping users work faster and better, wherever they are working.”

bswift’s CTO, Brett Baker, adds, ““We remain committed to solving for the administrative challenges of benefits administration and Exchanges represented in this release by our new EDI transparency dashboard for our customers and partners. We develop and maintain thousands of EDI feeds to carriers, payroll systems and external vendors, and it’s a challenge to manage the many implementations and processes. We continue to meet this challenge head-on with tools to build feeds more responsively, automate processes, foster collaborative workflow, and facilitate transparency and clear accountabilities.”
