Vanner believes that, given the complexities of the health care system, it is important to approach benefits with laser-like focus, rather than try to build solutions that cover the entire spectrum of HR needs. While solutions offered by other systems and payroll providers can provide broad functionality and product offerings, the breadth of the solution often has a shallower feature depth due to the capital required to maintain it. Because our platform has its own benefits administration system embedded, we have been able to build a platform with significant feature depth and configuration.
Our best-in-class benefits solution provides several advantages over systems:
Deeper and more flexible feature set, with better service:
Benefits as a core competency means a deeper and more flexible feature set, and it also means better service since it is provided by employees who know benefits inside and out.
Benefits technology requires ongoing investment and innovation:
Benefits technology requires continued focus and investment, not just because of complex and ongoing regulatory changes but also because the prevalent benefits models are in a state of flux. A benefits platform must evolve as employers experiment with the nuances of defined contribution, non-traditional benefits and other models.
Benefits data exchange is a specialized competency:
Benefits tech companies are focused on building a network of data exchange connections for benefits. We handle benefits data exchange connections with insurance carriers, TPAs and payroll systems and manage the complexities of eligibility rules at the group and carrier level along with COBRA and ACA regulations. We don’t have the limitations of other systems and we focus on the entire solution – not just the benefit solution.
