EaseCentral - A new way to manage employee benefits

2018-01-17

This cloud based benefit management portal is ideal for anyone looking to streamline their benefits management, and go paperless!

Pros

EaseCentral allows employees to enroll themselves in company benefits through their easy to use portal. The system is easy to understand and guides one through the process seamlessly.

Cons

Some of the pages are just plain white with little color, so it may be hard to navigate at first glance. Other than that, no cons!

Easy to Use

2020-09-16

Better record retention and reporting for all aspects of employee benefits.

Pros

Intuitive navigation Ease of set up of benefit plans, with their inherent granularity Very easy to create open enrollment menu for participants

Cons

1) Not enough payroll vendors have current APIs for connectivity with Ease. 2) Statutory market (<100) medical carriers not yet connected with APIs for eligibility; large group (>100) connected via aggregators.

2018-06-05

Pros

User friendly Service Team is awesome Houses so much useful information for both me as an administrator and for employees Reports are easily accessible (Enrollment Reports, etc.)

This has been a game changer for eliminating paper and tracking employee enrollments and engagement.

2018-07-12

Less paper, easier employee engagement, great reporting, and more.

Pros

Ease of use for employees. Easy (now) for us to set up employer groups and communicate.

Cons

There are some nuances for larger or more complex groups that are still not as easy as they should be.

Ease Review

2020-08-31

Onboarding and tracking of employees are really helpful features.

Pros

Using Ease helps out companies a lot by simplifying HR duties. Onboarding is very easy and saves tons of time.

Cons

Some features I wish I could adjust or modify. Reports do not offer the best options.

Simplified Open Enrollment

2017-08-15

It helped simplify our process and it provided our employees with the convenience to enroll on their own time.

Pros

It simplified the decision making process by showing the potential out of pocket contribution an employee would pay in real time.

Cons

The reporting feature.

Reduce Admin time and cost for employer, employees and producers

2019-04-29

tracking all client information Census on demand easy click for marketing with partners as a broker / consultant it is of value to be able to access client information and to empower the employer HR to be able to access enrollment and plan information.

Pros

Employer and employees like 24/7/365 access to benefit information Employer can track admin changes and employee access Added Security - 2 step authorization process to login Paperless Compliance documents posted Reports easily available - census, enrollment forms, by plan, employee, vendor, etc Compensation statements convey true employer value Carrier/Vendor partners automatically download eligibility so employer need only enter it into EASE system.... example Employee termination - HR enters date and reason; COBRA will automatically generate when the TPA picks up the data weekly (Sunday nights).

Cons

Wanted: more carrier partners such as Delta and VSP to automatically download eligibility waiver form completion - currently requires an extra step to download and check box before forwarding to carrier

Simple interface for admin and enrollment was a breeze for employees

2018-04-25

If for nothing else, it makes enrollment for new employees very simple and clearly explains what they are enrolling for/paying for.

Pros

Managing employee benefits through this portal is very simple, even though I have very little HR experience.

Cons

Some employees (just a few) had trouble figuring out how to login or didn't trust the email asking them to login.

Smooth implementation with solid software interface

2018-06-06

Online enrollment for new hires, paperwork renewals for Open Enrollment, robust reporting capabilities for the admin, and integrated HRIS for groups needs that functionality.

Pros

The look is visually appealing, the employees really like the look & feel, and from an admin side the reporting is very robust.

Cons

Aside from the necessary data entry to build groups there isn't anything I dislike about the software.

Changed the way I manage my clients.

2018-11-29

Pros

Such a time saver. 2) Straightforward online portal to ease enrollment for employees and access for employers/admin and us as brokers.

Cons

Any processes that could've been simplified have already been implemented... sometimes before I even realize that there was an easier way.

Broker with large and small clients on EaseCentral

2018-12-27

Able to offer Ben administration at no charge to all our clients as perk of doing business with us. We charge set up fees for micrclients only.

Pros

Able to manage all Ben administration needs and keep close eye on employee experience and provide our tailored employee decision support, ability to fix employee errors/changes and override quickly and easily

Cons

All systems demand set up time- this is no different, took my staff time to get through learning curve mostly self taught- need staff who can do this efficiently

Ease Central has been a tremendous resource, housing employee and benefit information.

2018-06-05

We use it for employee data, employee benefits, elections, employer contributions, , paycheck deductions, hiring and terminations dates, wages, pay period, 5500 forms.

Pros

It is a one stop for activities with most of our employer groups.

Cons

I don't have any cons about the software. Any unknown that I have come across has been quickly answered.

Great Way to Make Open Enrollment Paperless

2019-02-19

So far it has been a great service to use.

Pros

They seem to integrate with a lot of different vendors which is great because they automatically send out COBRA information for us.

Cons

They make each employee waive each benefit offer (we offer about 10 different things) which can be time consuming.

Simplest Software to Use

2020-02-17

Pros

It's not complicated to get reports. You don't have to wait 24 hrs for a feed to go through the system, everything is updated for you right then and there.

Cons

The only thing I don't like is that not everything has features, for example the vision plans I would like to add their features so the employees know the benefits instead of just importing a document.

Easy to Use and Implement

2018-06-01

The ability to give clients a portal in which employees can enroll in benefits without the hassle of paper forms.

Pros

The ease of use, the fact that we have complete control over the site set up and do not have to rely on the team at EaseCentral to set up sites on our behalf

Cons

Waiting patiently for file feeds to the carriers to be set up. The only piece of EaseCentral that is lacking is the inability to actually send enrollments to the carriers. But I know they are working on it.

Top Choice

2020-08-06

Ease has been a solution to the Covid 19 problem where enrollment can be done by the employees at their homes.

Pros

Adding a new company is a snap because all the product data, forms and plan designs are in the Ease library.

Cons

I am waiting for integration with some of the largest carriers to take place so enrollments and terminations would be automated.

EaseCentral makes life so much easier as a broker!

2018-03-13

Accurate forms and data collection.

Pros

Gathering completed forms with no more missing information or data from employers and employees. I like the central access point to manage new group enrollments as well as open enrollment changes.

Cons

It would be nice to receive specific notifications when a particular employee has made a change or completed their enrollment, etc.

Ease is simple, but doesn't have all the bells and whistles.

2020-03-03

I use Ease as a broker partner and as an employee of a group - I have experienced the system for set up through enrollment on the admin side as well as on the employee side.

Pros

Quick set up, and easy to change rates and benefits if needed.

Cons

ACA reporting - this can be challenging and sometimes they are not able to fix mistakes that occur (such as newborn dependents don't show up until the month after their birth).

Very useful enrollment tool

2018-06-01

Customer retention. Less back-and-forth with clients (due to complete forms).

Pros

Ease of use by our brokerage and also our client's HR managers and employees. It allows client's employees to enroll even if they are remote, and forms are complete.

Cons

The build-out of the portal can be tricky.
