Our Company



This month, EverythingBenefits held the first Client Advisory Board meeting of 2021. Five representatives joined us from our client and partner ecosystem including, Lipari Foods, Emerge Ortho P.A., Diamonds Direct, Payroll Partners, and Extensis Group. During this initial meeting the board explored and shared some of the biggest challenges they are tackling this year. The Client Advisory Board's objective is to guide EverythingBenefits' product strategy and address shared industry challenges in the benefits technology space. The CAB helps expand and formalize our culture of listening to gather feedback in order to build a more seamless experience with our solutions.

During our first meeting, we discussed the following themes:
  • The need for closer collaboration with payroll and HCM systems to ensure reliable, accurate, and timely data flowing to benefits administration systems and to carriers. 
  • How we can leverage seasonality of business to deliver proactive solutions to our clients and their employees.
  • Communicating with benefits carriers and sharing insights about our top carriers for 2021 and their contributions to our platform.
  • We introduced our Malachite Program which will strengthen the employer and carrier relationship by driving thought leadership, enhancing communications, and providing powerful analytics.

The Client Advisory Board meets quarterly to present feedback on the development of EverythingBenefits' solutions, customer service, and potential opportunities. Meet the 2021 Client Advisory Board:
