ENROLLEASE, INC.
If you do not currently have a benefits enrollment platform in your payroll system, Ease is a great option. It is simple to enroll employees and give them access so they can elect their benefits. I found this system especially helpful during open enrollment. From an admin side, the system was simple and easy to use and got the job done!

We utilize only one of the four components available because the other three are either too time consuming for what you get or just don't deliver what we need. The renewal estimator is the real star here and worth the cost of the tool (even if you don't use the other components, although we hope Zywave PlanAdvisor puts some money/time here to further develop them). It accurately projects renewals which help employers budget as they prepare for renewal. It is invaluable in our marketing and carrier negotiations because it is a an underwriting tool with the science and language that will speak to an underwriter... it's not a best guess, but accurate and respectable analytics.

  • Renewal projection - forecasting renewal rates is accurate and has been very beneficial to our clients and business.
  • Single period report is decent, but not as user friendly as we'd like it to be. It really only works with certain carriers.

Cons
ENROLLEASE, INC.
  • Some of the connected exterior apps and other services from the Marketplace seem complex.
  • Honestly, there's not much that I don't like so it's difficult to come up with cons.

  • Single Period Report: We hoped it would be like a "DMW lite" but it is only usable with a few carriers, and it's clunky/time consuming to use. We stopped using it.
  • Plan Modeler: It's a good idea, but we don't use it much. It needs more development and modeling options.
  • Plan Selector: It's a good idea, but it's too time consuming to add the info. If we could import it easily, we'd use it much more.

I've never had to call support for EaseCentral. Our broker typically handles any questions we have.

I have also used Hello Iris for benefit enrollment. After using Ease, I’d never go back. Ease was so much easier for our associates to use and was much easier to manage from an admin perspective. There were much fewer glitches and or freezes than with Hello Iris. Overall, usability is why we used Ease.
