Managing employee data and benefits can be frustrating and time-consuming. HR teams don’t have time to juggle multiple systems to keep employee information up to date. That’s why PlanSource and BambooHR have partnered together to introduce a seamless employee management and benefits administration system to cover all your HR needs. At PlanSource, our mission is to provide better technology for a better benefits and HR experience. Our benefits administration software provides cloud-based benefits shopping, enrollment, billing, compliance, and administration.

Friendly Mobile Experience

Not everyone has access to a laptop or desktop computer. And not everyone can enroll in benefits while at work. The PlanSource system uses responsive design, which means that employees can enroll in benefits on any device, whether it is on a laptop, tablet or phone. Our new employee experience applies concepts that consumers are already familiar with such as a shopping cart and checkout process.

Plan Recommendations and Decision Support

Throughout the shopping experience, employees are given guidance and recommendations for all types of benefits. While many companies focus mostly on recommendations for medical, PlanSource provides recommendations for voluntary benefits that take into account the employee’s complete benefits package. For example, when employees enroll in a high-deductible health plan, we can recommend that they consider a voluntary product such as Accident coverage.

Customizable Reports

Create, customize, preview, save and schedule reports and graphs. PlanSource offers a full suite of configurable reports – from employee and dependent census reports to enrollment roster and change reports – that help HR professionals oversee their benefit programs.

The PlanSource Advantage Program

PlanSource has partnerships with leading national insurance carriers who provide financial credits when you offer their products to your employees and those employees participate. This is a good thing for you because it’s becoming increasingly costly and complex to manage employee benefit programs and by paying you when employees enroll, we’re putting money back in your pocket.


How it works.

You will continue to manage all employee data and information in BambooHR. You can rest assured knowing that when you update information in BambooHR such as employment status, salary, marital status and more all the information will be automatically reflected in PlanSource.
