CHICAGO, IL — Wednesday, February 25th, 2015

bswift, a leader in cloud-based technology and services for employee benefits and health exchanges, today announced that 2014 was another banner year in terms of revenue growth, transaction volumes and technology updates.

From 2010 through 2014, the compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of the company’s recurring revenue was 46%. bswift also processed 57% more enrollment transactions on its system in 2014 than the previous year, with a total of more than 43 million transactions. With this level of scalability combined with significant platform enhancements, bswift maintained its position at the forefront of the benefits administration and private exchange technology market.

“The rapid growth that bswift has experienced over the past several years is a direct result of our ability not only to address customers’ challenges with today’s benefits programs, but also to anticipate their upcoming needs in this dynamic era of health care and benefits,” said Rich Gallun, CEO, bswift.

Throughout 2014, bswift expanded its technology offerings significantly, to help clients address the challenges and opportunities of the evolving health and benefits market. Some highlights from last year included:

  • Adding several ancillary and voluntary benefits modules as well as substantial educational content to Ask Emma, bswift’s proprietary decision support tool
  • Enhancing bswift’s ACA Compliance suite, including further development of tracking tools for the 30-hour rule as well as new functionality to support 6055 and 6056 reporting
  • Rolling out bswift Analytics to shed more light on how consumers are using benefits tools and making important decisions, such as choosing health plans

“Our data analytics solutions provide deep insight into how consumers use our products,” noted Brett Baker, CTO, bswift. “By combining these findings with items such as employer feedback and Affordable Care Act requirements, we’re able to tailor our products to meet the real, day-to-day needs of our clients.”
