Maxwell Health

Maxwell Health is easy to use and it provides a great way to manage all of the benefits offered by the company to the company as a whole. It answers many of the questions right there on the platform without the user having to contact any type of support. It saves time for the employee and makes them aware of what benefits they currently have.

Unless PeopleStrategy has made improvements to the quality of support they give their users as well as the system they support there is no situation in which I would ever recommend them to another HR professional. I'd prefer to save them the headache and hassle that I wish someone had provided us.

Cons

Maxwell Health

PeopleStrategy

  • The administrator support was very inadequate. There was no urgency in the responses we received and they were generally very unhelpful.
  • The customization for our company was lacking. There was no way to make it appealing to view.
  • The reporting tool was very poorly designed. When running reports the only option that worked sucessfully was to run a generic all encompassing people report and pair it down in excel based on the data you were trying to extract.
  • No user information was provided when changes were made to specific fields in the HRIS side so when one person changed something there was no way to identify later who the change was initiated by. This made it very difficult to be able to identify quality issues.

Alternatives Considered

Maxwell Health

I have mainly worked with the carrier and vendor sites as an administrator. Maxwell is far and away a better interface, simple to use and you have all benefits and employees in one place. No more jumping from website to website, logging in each time just to process changes for one employee.

PeopleStrategy

ADP and Oracle are systems I have used and the GUI of Oracle even as antiquated as it is was vastly more efficient to work with than the people as well as system that PeopleStrategy claimed to be supporting. I didn't have any part in the selection of this system as it was in place before I was part of the team. We promptly began looking into all in one systems so that we could convert to a better experience for us as administrators and for the employees and their use. We ulitmatelt converted to ADP this year and even though the process was not as seemless as promised I would still take this process over using PeopleStrategy any time.

Return on Investment

Maxwell Health

  • Benefit Awareness
  • Less work for HR
  • A more productive solution for benefits
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

PeopleStrategy

  • Duplicate work had to be done in order to make sure data had been saved
  • Third party linking for payroll was inadequate and sometimes didn't transmit accurate information up to and including pay changes, address changes, W4 updates, etc.
  • The process for benefits annual enrollment took 6 months to prepare outside of the normal negotiations that occur with our vendors. After the implementation had been done the reporting we had to create was inaccurate which required us to double check everyone. It was time consuming and very counter productive.
