For Employers

Smart.

At bswift, we believe we've got the best technology on the market today. It's intelligent, fully automated, and can be configured the way you need it. But our products and services are only as good as the people behind them. Our experienced team comes from first-rate companies in the benefits, consulting, outsourcing and technology sectors and they uphold bswift's high standards of excellence in everything they do. We listen to your requests, deliver what's promised, and make sure it's done right.

Simple.

Our goal is to streamline the entire HR, benefits and payroll process so that it's as efficient and painless as possible. bswift's software was designed with the "non-techie" user in mind — as a result, it is intuitive and easy-to-use for employees, HR Managers and Administrators alike. And our services are designed to ease your burden — not create another one.

Savvy.

HR can be challenging (to say the least) and benefits administration is more complicated than it looks. But because we're a very agile company with a unique expertise in benefits, we can turn on a dime and give you what you want, when you need it, at the right price. Better results for less money. That's savvy.

P.S. Did we mention "fun"? Life is short. We believe in having some fun along the way. Join us as a bswift client and enjoy the fun at our next bswift Summit, our annual client conference and industry symposium.

For Exchanges

From shopping, enrollment and eligibility, to billing, reporting and interfacing with carriers, we offer a flexible, robust, web-based solution you can trust.

We've drawn on our 15+ years in the benefits administration marketplace, including our experience running numerous private and site exchanges, to create the best exchange platform out there.

Features of the bswift Exchange platform include:

  • bswift's proprietary Defined Contribution platform
  • ACA compliance toolkit
  • Employer tools including reporting, alerts, and dashboards
  • Efficient setup and maintenance to handle both initial enrollments and ongoing administration and renewals
  • Electronic data interchange (EDI) and web services with numerous carriers, partners and administrators
  • Billing

Stores are only as good as their products, and benefit exchanges are no different. Leverage our inventory or bring your own relationships and products to the table.

bswift advantages include:

  • Premium national carrier partners for ancillary and voluntary benefits, including dental, vision, life, disability, accident insurance and more
  • Simplified administration: carrier partners have committed to collaborate with bswift to offer a streamlined, integrated and reliable "end-to-end" process for enrollment, eligibility and billing
  • Flexibility to feature health carriers on a regional basis

Health and benefit exchanges are sometimes compared to online travel sites, although the analogy is oversimplified. Booking a flight is a one-time transaction, while health exchanges must constantly manage changing information about the consumer and the contributions made on behalf of the consumer by the employer or the government. bswift has the people and tools to help guide administrators and consumers through the process, including:

  • Consumer shopping and decision support tools
  • Highly personalized & friendly Call Center
  • Employer support and tools: to set up your Defined Contribution program, benchmark your benefits, enable easy and secure access to data and more
