has launched Andromeda, its spring product release, which it says is one of the
first online technologies to feature mobile-friendly benefits enrollment.
new employee experience was developed using responsive design, meaning that
employees can shop for and enroll in benefits on any device, whether it is on a
laptop, tablet or phone and, unlike a mobile app that consumers have to
download, the site will simply adapt and work on any size screen.
new employee experience was built to make the benefits shopping and enrollment
experience as easy and intuitive as possible. It includes cards to display plan
options, sliders for making selections and concepts that consumers are already
familiar with such as a shopping cart and a checkout process.
with the new employee experience, the Andromeda release contains multiple
other enhancements, including:
navigation in the administrator interface - The navigation within the
PlanSource administrator user interface has been redesigned and simplified to
provide a streamlined, more user-friendly experience.
reports center - The reports area of the system has been updated with a modern
look, a more intuitive workflow, dashboards and report descriptions.
enhancements - Updates and enhancements have been made to many of the standard
reports human resources teams use to track and monitor benefits programs.
business rules - More options are available for administering 401(k) accounts
and configuring how employee groups are managed in the system.
and integrations - Andromeda includes enhanced APIs for handling evidence of insurability,
payroll deductions, and updates to employee and dependent demographic
information, as well as deepened integration with MetLife.
addition, all PlanSource customers now have full access to the professional
services added by the recent acquisition of Next Generation Enrollment,
including COBRA administration, benefit account administration, employee
contact center, total benefits outsourcing, dependent verification and custom
employee communications. More details about
the Andromeda release can be found at www.plansource.com/release.
