Our Technology

Are you looking for powerful solutions that can seamlessly automate employee-facing benefit processes and back-office carrier administration tasks?

As an experienced benefit solutions provider, Winston intimately understands the wide range of requirements that organizations have when searching for a benefits automation solution. In response to those requirements, we’ve developed a proprietary solution that seamlessly handles your most complex benefits administration needs.

BenefitInsite

Our proprietary, web-based, solution delivers a single integrated application for all of your benefit administration needs including: 

Communication 
BenefitInsite allows your benefits team to send highly targeted messages to individuals or groups of employees about an enrollment event or upcoming changes in the benefits plan. The customizable portable allows an organization to incorporate its brand, content and messaging. Summary Plan Documents and other benefit forms can be uploaded to the portal to allow employees access to all benefits-related information in a single, online location.

Education
BenefitInsite can help support education initiatives, including those related to health and wellness, human resources and benefits terminology. The platform provides an interactive decision-assist feature that can guide employees through benefit plan selection, enabling employees to compare benefit options based on detailed coverage, health care usage or benefit cost information.

Enrollment
BenefitInsite provides employees with the ability to access and enroll in ALL plan benefits from a single web-portal application. The enrollment system is designed around your company’s benefit plan, and it is easily configured to reflect your unique business and eligibility rules. The platform automatically enforces the rules for your business and your benefit providers for open enrollment, new hires and employee life events that occur throughout the year.

Administration
BenefitInsite provides everything employers need to manage employee benefits online, eliminating  paper-based processes at open enrollment and throughout the year. The platform also delivers a comprehensive set of more than 22 standard online reports to provide valuable insight into employee behavior.

BenefitInsite Admin

Winston is one of the pioneers of carrier administration solutions. Our first client in 1990 required us to enroll, communicate and administer a multi-product/multi-carrier voluntary benefits program using only a single payroll deduction code. The development of this process, known today as “consolidated billing,” has helped this client successfully manage a complex benefits administration process for 125,000 people.

Our patented and proprietary technology for vendor management will streamline and automate several critical administration processes by:

  • Creating a single secure electronic interface connection to all carriers.
  • Automatically providing eligibility/participation files via this interface.
  • Automatically executing participation file audits.
  • Managing dependent and beneficiary information.,
  • Confirming the “advise-to-pay” report of plan participant data through each billing cycle reconciles with the invoice from your group benefit vendor.

Out technology establishes secure, bi-directional electronic data interchange (EDI) interfaces between the enrollment solution and an organization’s HRIS/payroll system, providing seamless premium accounting and reconciliation services across carriers, TPAs and other providers. An organization can transmit, monitor and manage the enrollment, eligibility and participation of the benefits program electronically and confidently, verified by more than 20 robust reports that are generated automatically upon each billing cycle or payroll period.
