benefitexpress Extends Industry Leadership Earning Two Badges on Shortlister Q4 Top Vendor Report for HR Technology

Recognized as Top HR Technology Vendor for Benefits Administration Solution Companies and Benefits Decision Support

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. — benefitexpress™, a leading provider of cloud-based technology software and services for employee benefits administration, announced today their receipt of two badges on the Shortlister Q4 Top Vendor Report for HR Technology. This marks the fifth consecutive quarter benefitexpress has been recognized by Shortlister in its quarterly report.

Shortlister is the #1 marketplace for employers and consultants to find and select providers in the Human Capital, Well-being and Benefits space.

The three criteria evaluated in the Top Vendor Report were company background and stability, business performance and rating data and market presence and/or buzz factor.

The two badges awarded to benefitexpress are:

“We are excited to announce that benefitexpress has been named a Q4 2020 Top Vendor for both the Benefits Administration Solution and Benefits Decision Support Tool categories by Shortlister, the No. 1 marketplace for employers and consultants to find and select providers in the human capital, wellness and benefits space,” said Shortlister President Joe Miller.

benefitexpress’ inclusion makes it part of an elite list: just 12 of 70 companies (17%) earned Top Vendor status in Shortlister’s Benefits Administration Solution category, and just 5 of 31 (16%) did for the Benefits Decision Support Tool category. Data factored into the awards includes number of clients, number of lives covered, bid inclusion, and wins vs. losses.

benefitexpress contributes much of their success to their “service-first” mentality, unlike many of their competitors who focus mainly on technology. They build strong and trusting relationships with their clients through service excellence and use their industry-leading technology to deliver their solutions to clients and their employees.

Providing top-quality service and technology is even more important as employer clients struggle to manage the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. According to a benefitexpress recent study, 74% of employers will be evaluating their need to switch or invest in benefits technology within the next year and a half.

If you want to work with a proven leader in technology and services for benefits administration, benefitexpress is eager to provide the guidance and tools you need to improve the benefits experience for your employees.
