SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- EaseCentral, the all-in-one software solution for human resources and employee benefits, is announcing a bevy of new customers, partners, products and integrations solidifying their position as the leader for broker technology solutions. EaseCentral is now working with more than 22,000 employers servicing nearly a million employees. The company has seen record growth since its inception in 2012 and is expanding into several new markets in 2017.
EaseCentral recently added BenefitMall, the nation's largest general agency and leading provider of employee benefits, human resources and payroll products and services, to its already robust list of partners. Earlier this year the company announced a partnership with one of the largest general agencies in California, beere&purves (B&P) to form a real time Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) with Anthem Blue Cross of California. NFP, one of the country's largest insurance brokerage and consulting firms is also now utilizing EaseCentral's technology solutions.
According to Scott Kirksey, president of BenefitMall, "The partnership with EaseCentral allows us to offer additional service and technology options to support brokers, which is imperative in today's employee benefits industry. We are thrilled to provide EaseCentral's streamlined online enrollment that empowers brokers and their clients to go digital, and enables them to complete faster enrollments with higher quality data."
David Reid employee benefits veteran and Co-Founder and CEO of EaseCentral has seen an increase in the number of General Agents partnering with the platform to better support their brokers and says the race is on to digitize this industry. "One trend we've seen this year is larger brokers have begun adopting and rolling out SaaS solutions at a rapidly increasing pace. NFP is one of the largest five brokers in America and is systematically implementing solutions for their customers with EaseCentral. It's becoming clear that SaaS is a needed tool in the industry, but brokers bring an important component to a successful value proposition with technology."
With this is mind, the company is launching the EaseCentral Marketplace, where brokers can access a number of services and deeper carrier integrations. Major insurance providers and healthcare exchanges, such as Colonial Life, Unum, Transamerica, Amino and Limelight Health are choosing EaseCentral's platform in order to offer brokers, their clients and employees the chance to easily register for medical and non-medical benefits during the enrollment process, find experienced, in-network doctors and estimate their out-of-pocket costs for free, provide live rate and benefit data, and real-time modeling to find the right plan and defined contribution strategy.
EaseCentral is also revealing a new pillar to the company's service, HRIS which offers PTO, performance reviews, organizational charts, directories and more. In addition, the company has rolled out payroll service integrations with Paylocity, TraxPayroll and Payroll City which allows brokers and employers to easily setup payroll and benefit services and allows employees to view paystubs and deductions all on their EaseCentral login, make changes which sync to their payroll account and pull quotes and compare information from multiple carriers instantly from any desktop or mobile device. Further payroll integrations are in development with BenefitMall for release.
With the election nearing, Reid expects the consumerization of healthcare to become even more apparent in the industry. "Regardless of the election outcome, there are more changes coming to our country's healthcare system. It can be difficult to navigate the chaos. Connecting brokers with an easy to use all-in-one platform like EaseCentral will empower the thousands of brokers, HR managers and employers to offer a paperless, seamless and much better benefits experience for consumers," concluded Reid.

Built for agents and employers, cloud-based EaseCentral makes it simple for companies to set up and manage over 50 types of benefits, coordinate payroll and HR, collaborate with employers on new hires, changes and terminations, and deliver completed tax information - all from one location.
