Pricing Information

Sometimes, benefits enrollment systems are sold as part of a larger HR software suite, and pricing for the benefits administration component is rolled into the overall price. But for standalone products, there are different pricing models.


Two of the most common are a monthly flat fee, or a flat fee minimum plus a per employee, per month license. The latter is dependent on the number of employees in the system which may act as a brake on adoption. Under this scenario, common pricing is a flat fee of $30 to $200 or more, depending on capabilities, plus a per employee price of $10 to $20.
