Word & Brown has a long history of developing and offering technology to help brokers and those you serve. After all, we introduced the first Small Group, multi-carrier quoting system for health insurance brokers more than 35 years ago. Today, we offer a broad range of tech to make your job easier – including online benefits enrollment tools.

A Powerful Enrollment Solution – and More

Our partnership with tech providers like Ease means you have access to broker-friendly online benefits and management tools. Ease combines everything you in a single platform, including:

Online Enrollment – Give your clients’ employees the ability to quickly review plan options and enroll securely online.

Onboarding – Collect W-9, I-9, Direct Deposit, and other information from employees and store it safely.

HR Documents – Track e-signatures to confirm employees have reviewed handbooks, agreements, and other materials. Offer downloads of personnel forms.

Benefits Administration – Calculate Full Time Equivalents (FTEs), track variable-hour employees, and help you client determine Application Large Employee (ALE) status annually.

Training Demos – View a detailed online demo of the features of Ease – just ask us about setting it up. There’s also an online video overview to share with employer- clients.

Added Resources – Reduce your set-up time by loading rates from the Word & Brown rate library housed on Ease. Add video, brochures, and Summaries of Benefits and Coverage to drive increased participation.

Ease also offers optional payroll that works in conjunction with your client’s existing payroll provider to keep employee information up to date.

Contact your Word & Brown representative for information about putting Ease to work for your clients. Multiple options are available, including Try Before You Buy.

API Integrations

Our Application Program Interface (API) options allow integration of data and systems with carriers, plans, and quote information. The faster exchange of information saves valuable time for you, your clients, and their enrolling employees. It also eliminates re-entry of information, reducing the opportunity for errors. That means you can focus on what’s really important: more sales. To learn about other apps and tools from Word & Brown, visit our technology web page.

Ask your Word & Brown representative for details, including information on our latest API integration. If you’re not yet working with Word & Brown, it’s easy to get started. Register now using our online form.
