HR-ease is a highly flexible and scalable HR and Benefits solution that allows employees and managers the flexibility to easily view, update and modify a wide range of data anytime - anywhere. Faced with limited internal resources, companies are turning to HR-ease for a cost-effective yet powerful solution. HR-ease helps companies focus on profits, while reducing costs and increasing employee satisfaction.
Automation Saves Time and Money
HR-ease Web-based applications replace tedious, paper-based processes that consume unnecessary amounts of time and limit workforce productivity eliminating the need for paper enrollment forms and other time consuming and non-secure paper processes.
Interfacing directly with core systems can eliminate duplicate data entry to various systems.
Employees can handle their own HR-related administrative tasks from work, home, or on the road. This allows the HR and Benefits staff to focus on more strategic duties such as retention and recruiting.
Accuracy is significantly improved as the benefit class/program (such as Executive vs. Hourly) limits benefit options and displays proper rates. Benefit plans are limited by location/zip codes, and business rules are programmed to ensure that all required data is completed and enforced. Follow-up for partially completed forms, inaccurate or ineligible elections, and illegible documents is virtually eliminated.
Modular, Web-Based Approach is Cost and Time-Effective
HR-ease Web-based applications easily integrate with other applications and existing back office systems and scale efficiently to grow as your company grows. Deployment, integration, and maintenance are all simplified using the Web. We designed our product for rapid implementation and customization to save our customers time and money. When purchased in an Application Service Provider (ASP .NET) environment, there is no software to load, no hardware to maintain or security to enforce. Similar technologies can cost over $1 million to purchase and implement.
The system is designed with significant functional perspective and compliance coupled with strong technical expertise. It is easy to use from the lowest skilled user to the management team experts. No special training is needed - if you can surf the web, you can use our product.
Simple screens belie the complexity of the systems controls working behind the scenes to ensure that employees only see what they are eligible to participate in. Employees have access to a significant amount of information, all in one location such as Provider Directories, Summary Plan Descriptions, Plan Comparisons, Eligibility Requirements, and much more.
Employees and managers like the ease of use and instant feedback from Web-based changes to benefits, and other personal information. Company directories, policies and procedures, benefits information, and other corporate information on the Web are easily accessed.
HR-ease applications free HR and Benefit professionals from the volumes of administrative duties and paperwork, which consume on average over 60% of their time. Simple point and click technology ensures data, is easy to access, update, and change while eliminating duplication and accuracy issues. Manage multiple site locations easily and efficiently.
With HR-ease, HR professionals can spend more time focused on the core competencies and activities such as human interaction, building relationships and developing strategies for recruiting and retaining employees.
Accuracy is ensured because paper processes are virtually eliminated while checks and balances within the system eliminate the need for rework caused by errors inherent in manual procedures.
Increased Reporting Means Better Management Tools
Automated, Web-based reporting tools mean less HR and IT time is needed to support basic and complex information requests. With easier access to relevant reports and data, managers are more empowered and can make better decisions. Managers have immediate access to data and information regarding employees, elections, benefit plans, and all costs.
The HR-ease technology ensures accuracy by only giving employees to the plans they are eligible for in the respective timeframe allowed. Carriers are not paid for employees that are not eligible.
In the ever-increasing complexity of complying with Federal regulations, it is critical that the right tools are used in administering health and welfare plans. HR Ease technology is designed with appropriate firewalls as mandated in the HIPAA Privacy Act. Permissions, Security and Interfaces are HIPAA compliant.
Qualifying Events are declared directly on line, with no need to call, visit, mail, or email HR. Dates, times and elections are tracked to ensure eligibility requirements are met as defined by the plan and ERISA.
