bswift Announces New Mobile App as Platinum Sponsor at 2012 HR Technology Conference

CHICAGO, IL — Monday, October 8th, 2012


bswift, a leader in software and services for employee benefits administration, announced today that it had released a new bswift Benefits App for its clients. This App was designed to work simply and elegantly on mobile devices to provide bswift clients’ employees with a “Quick Look” at their covered benefits. The bswift Benefits App is available in the Apple and Google play stores. The announcement comes at the 2012 HR Technology Conference in downtown Chicago, where bswift is a platinum sponsor for the second year in a row.

“Employees now have the convenience to access their insurance ID number or confirm their co-pay amount when they need it – at the pharmacy or the dentist’s or doctor’s office. In our increasingly mobile world, it’s important for consumers to have easy access to accurate benefits information to make educated health care decisions for themselves and their families,” says bswift CEO Rich Gallun.

The free, secure bswift Benefits App allows employees to quickly obtain accurate benefits information “on-the-go,” including:

  • Insurance group and ID numbers
  • Co-pay, co-insurance and deductible information
  • Coverage effective dates
  • Carrier contact information
  • Links to important carrier websites
  • Payroll deductions and contribution to benefits (Flexible Savings Accounts and Health Savings Accounts)


The announcement was received by thousands of HR professionals and industry experts. “The HR Technology Conference is the annual town meeting of our community,” says Co-Chair Bill Kutik, technology columnist for producer Human Resource Executive, “with just about every vendor, consultant, analyst, blogger and HR practitioner who cares about HR technology attending—from 27 countries last year. People come because everyone they need to meet is here.”

The bswift Benefits App was just one featured component of bswift’s offering at the conference. Educating attendees on “A New Way to Think About Benefits,” bswift featured a lineup of presentations on consumerism and transparency, wellness and incentives, health exchanges and defined contribution, benchmarking and analytics, video, and more. Speakers from Castlight Health, the HR Capitalist, and bswift’s Don Garlitz, Executive Director, Exchange Solutions contributed.
