CHARLESTON, S.C., Aug. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Benefitfocus, a leading provider of cloud-based benefits software, today announced that Neenah Enterprises, Inc. (NEI) has selected BENEFITFOCUS HR INTOUCH® to transform its benefits administration strategy from paper dependent to cloud-based. Headquartered in Neenah, Wisconsin, NEI is a leading American producer of quality castings, manufacturing durable products such as manhole covers and grates that are foundational for any municipal infrastructure, and industrial castings for Fortune 500 manufacturing companies. With the adoption of the cloud-based portal HR InTouch, NEI will initiate a fundamental modernization of their benefits management systems and gain access to the latest tools that simplify benefit enrollment, employee communication and benefits education.
HR InTouch seamlessly integrates all plan options into a single enrollment workflow, providing one place for NEI's 2,200 benefit-eligible employees and retirees to shop and enroll in coverage. NEI will leverage the portal's rules-based engine and advanced decision support tools to present healthcare information in a way that is easy to understand. The BENEFITFOCUS® Plan Shopping App provides guidance throughout the enrollment process, displaying the correlation between health-related behavior and out-of-pocket costs for each plan option. Additionally, a video library featuring more than 300 videos empowers NEI's employees to make more informed decisions about their healthcare and benefit elections.
"Our paper-based enrollment system was antiquated, and the multiple systems in use increased the complexity of the enrollment process," explained Rhonda Ziegler, Benefits Administrator for Neenah Enterprises. "Introducing HR InTouch was, administratively, a vital upgrade that not only eliminated tons of paperwork but also reduced the errors that unintentionally creep into any paper-based system. The fact that we can now offer our employees a more intuitive and engaging enrollment experience is an added bonus. We can provide the essential educational resources to encourage smarter decision making."
"Since 1872, Neenah Enterprises has manufactured the products that keep American towns safe and attractive and major manufacturers running smoothly," stated Benefitfocus President and CEO Shawn Jenkins. "Our technology is designed and regularly upgraded to simplify benefits so that employers can reduce their administrative burden, better support their employees and get back to their core business. HR InTouch allows Neenah Enterprises to offer a great enrollment experience for their employees so that they can concentrate on manufacturing quality cast products."
NEI will complete the implementation of HR InTouch in time to introduce the new system to its employees during open enrollment this October.
