It really comes down to the fact that it is easy to use for our employees and that makes my job easier.

Zywave
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.

Pros
Group Dynamic Inc.
  • Their mobile app makes it easy for FSA reimbursements to the end user. Snap a shot of the EOB with your phone and upload it for payment.
  • They have push reporting that makes the accounting process simple to reconcile.
  • HRA claims only require a receipt and one form submited via fax or email to get paid.

  • 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
Group Dynamic Inc.
  • I would like to see a mobile app for the HRA process.
  • Adding in a field for the date and reason of job separation with a confirmation of some sort instead of an email/messaging type method would be more user friendly.

  • 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.
