Sage Benefits Enrollment
Providing a generous and competitive benefits package is one way employers can recruit and keep talented employees and is a significant factor in reducing workforce turnover. Sage Benefits Enrollment takes the powerful benefits management solution of Sage HRMS to the next level by enabling employees to make their own benefit elections through the Internet or intranet. Not only can you save countless hours and piles of paperwork, but you can increase employee satisfaction by empowering them to be proactive with their decisions. Easy, step-by-step wizards guide administrators through the benefit plan setup process and walk employees through open enrollment. Sage Benefits Enrollment even includes year-round life events management, so employees will find it easy to update information such as marital status and dependents.

Setup wizards in Sage Benefits Enrollment support multiple open enrollment projects and guide administrators through the process of setting up benefit plan information, including open enrollment start and end dates, applicable companies, applicable organizational levels, dependent eligibility, and more. During the open enrollment process, employees can only choose from those plans applicable to them, based on the criteria you set up.
Save administrative hours with powerful, fully automated workflow capabilities. Keep up to date with all employee selections as they occur instead of waiting to batch update benefit elections. Errors are automatically flagged, allowing administrators to request that the employee make the appropriate changes.
Life events management
Besides entering annual benefit elections, employees can use Sage Benefits Enrollment as a self-service tool to quickly provide the HR department with life event updates. Employees can add dependents, change marital status, change dependent status, and designate dependents as students. These features are available at all times, including during the open enrollment period.
Guided enrollment process
Sophisticated tools include step-by-step wizards that pilot employees through benefits enrollment. These wizards can be easily customized to meet the needs of your company’s specific open enrollment process. Employees are prompted to choose plans based on automatic eligibility criteria and can even save their progress and return at a later date. When selections are complete, they can authorize changes with digital signatures.
Benefit plan integration
Empower employees with instant access to online information, including company-specific plan documents, with a click of a mouse. Even links to external websites can be added for easy access to plan providers and other helpful online information.
During the open enrollment process, employees can make informed decisions by comparing the costs and coverage of their current benefit elections with new plan offerings.
Integration to Sage HRMS and Sage HRMS Payroll
Once approved by the appropriate administrator, changes made to benefit elections during the open enrollment period are automatically updated in Sage HRMS. When also installed with Sage HRMS Payroll, benefit deduction changes are also automatically updated, eliminating hours of duplicate data entry.
Sage Benefits Enrollment supports multiple browsers, including Internet Explorer®, Safari®, Firefox®, and Chrome® to have your employees up and running in no time. The user interface requires no training, and 24/7 web access even provides employees with the flexibility to involve spouses at home in the decision-making process.
Administrators can easily manage the entire open enrollment process with comprehensive tools. Customize reminder messages for employees who haven’t finished enrolling in benefits, easily monitor the progress of each employee, quickly approve or reject benefit selections, and batch update approved benefit plan data changes to Sage HRMS.
Sage Benefits Enrollment is an optional add-on to Sage Employee Self Service (Sage ESS). Sage HRMS or Sage Abra Suite is required to use Sage Benefits Enrollment.
