Benefitfocus
It is well suited for a small company of maybe 300-400. It is less appropriate for companies in areas where a transit and parking benefit is a must.

bswift
bswift is well suited for benefit enrollment for both new hires and users looking to change or enroll in benefits during open enrollment. It is less appropriate for people looking to explore personal or additional benefits that are separate from the employer. It is more designed for benefit administrators than it is for individual users.

Cons
Benefitfocus
  • Great at selling their product but not keeping their promises.
  • Too many glitches and they always advise it will be updated/corrected on their next "quarterly update".
  • They can't administer QTB plans (parking and transit) which is an essential benefit plan offered to companies. They didn't officially come out with this news until after we had implemented and launched the program. During implementation, they made it appear like it would work.

Alternatives Considered
Benefitfocus
I thought it would be a good facelift and upgrade to BeneTrac which was outdated and hadn't done anything to change the look and feel of their platform. Only to find out Benetrac is more adaptable to manual changes and needs.

Return on Investment
Benefitfocus
  • It was a negative impact because we launched the program during open enrollment only to revert back to the old platform, BeneTrac, 3 months later.
  • Bad impression on the benefits team to implement a program that didn't deliver.
