About Client

The client is a leading employee benefits broker in California, US offering consulting services to mid and large-scale businesses. It is also listed in the top 100 benefits broker consultancies in California. Founded in 2007, the client and its team members provide property insurance and employee benefits services. The broker client has been successful in recommending the best medical and health insurance plans to its employers in the past. However, recently, the broker was struggling to control the rising medical plan premiums for its employers.

One of its crucial employer clients was a 7-year old company offering SAP security and compliance solutions to other businesses. The company was unhappy with receiving double-digit health insurance increases with no relief from the broker. Some of the other challenges faced by the broker with this particular employer client are as follows

Business Challenges

  • Rising Premium Costs: The broker was continually showing the plans with high premium to its SAP solution provider-client company. The lack of a modern benefits technology solution was limiting the broker’s capability to figure out plans with lower employee premium contributions. The brokerage firm was suggesting plans based on the advice of its consultants who are too old to compete with the current industry standards and market solutions. The inability to assemble a robust, attractive benefits package was decreasing the employer clients’ trust in broker services.
  • Complex System: Later on, when the company implemented a cloud-based HR platform, it was not user-friendly at all. The clunky interface and complex workflows made it difficult for HR teams to train people how to use it for managing their organizational profiles.
  • Poor Compliance: Because the benefits broker was not having a robust technology solution, the plans it was recommending to clients were getting challenged by the changing state-wise compliance regulations. Adhering to different benefits compliance requirements was becoming time-consuming and hectic for the broker because of manual and paper-based processes.
  • Product Portfolio: The broker client was unable to offer a unique and attractive benefits package for its large employer because of the high premium of its existing plans. The employer client of the broker was expecting unique benefits plan recommendations for the Dental, Vision, Life, Commuter, and Disability category. But, the broker was unable to maintain a diversified product mix because of its existing cost worries.
  • Self-Service HR Portal: The broker was also failing to offer a quality self-service HR platform for its business clients. It was also among the key reasons for increasing client dissatisfaction towards its brokerage services. The clients of the broker firm were unable to view, evaluate and compare their benefits offerings through a self-service portal.
