benefitsCONNECT® Announces payrollCONNECT

payrollCONNECT allows brokers to simplify payroll services for employer groups and strengthen their relationships with their clients.

Elk Grove, CA, August 14, 2011 --( benefitsCONNECT® announced at their 3rd Annual Benefits Technology Users Summit the launch of payrollCONNECT, a new product that gives health insurance brokers the option to provide payroll services as part of their product offering.

This service will allow health insurance brokers to offer a payroll service that fully integrates into the benefitsCONNECT® and agencyMANAGER systems. With major banks and payroll services controlling 65% of the outsourced payroll market and moving heavily into health insurance sales, payrollCONNECT gives brokers the chance to offer the services their clients need without risking their own business. This best-in-breed technology allows brokers to sell a solution instead of a commodity, and also gives them the option of private labeling the payroll piece in order to promote their brand and bundle with existing products.

payrollCONNECT not only offers solutions for small and large employer groups, but also includes dedicated account managers assigned to each group of clients. By adding payrollCONNECT to their repertoire, brokers have the opportunity to bring in the experts employers want and solidify their role as a consultant.

“To continue to build on our commitment to providing more than just software,” says Ja’Nene Kane, President / COO of benefitsCONNECT®. “We are bringing a truly integrated payroll solution to brokers to help them compete against the payroll giants who operate in our market space.”
