Hodges-Mace, an innovator in benefit management software and services, has been named a 2019 Top 25 HR Technology Provider by CIO Applications Magazine. Now in its third year, this annual award recognizes companies who deliver game-changing solutions to simplify and improve the benefits selection experience and enhance employee engagement.

A pioneer in HR technology, Hodges-Mace is among the first to embrace AI, data aggregation and multi-lingual messaging to personalize the benefits experience for each employee. Recently, the company integrated their SmartBen benefits management platform with Amazon Alexa, dramatically boosting employee engagement. A secure, cloud-based system that runs on any device, SmartBen also features an integrated mobile app that is vendor agnostic, providing employees with a single platform where they can access all of their important benefits information right from their phone.

This year readers nominated 50 companies for the prestigious Top 25 HR Technology Provider Award. Winners were selected by the publication’s advisory board. Hodges-Mace President and Chief Technology Officer, Kevin Andrews, was interviewed about the company’s unique value proposition by the editor of CIO Applications. This interview is featured here in the current issue of the magazine, which is read by 62,000 executive decision makers in HR and IT.

According to Kevin, today’s employer faces a myriad of major HR challenges including rising healthcare costs, data overload, compliance issues among others. “Our mission at Hodges-Mace is to help our clients drive health and financial wellness by simplifying processes, aggregating information, and connecting with their employees,” notes Kevin. “Integrating the most cutting-edge HR technologies into our products is one of the ways we are empowering HR teams to meet the growing challenges of running a successful workplace.”

Kevin does not see the benefits landscape becoming any less complex in the foreseeable future. For that reason Hodges-Mace recently created the SmartBen Bridge Program. This thriving partner network of brokers and consultants, carriers, vendors and program managers brings these important players together to simplify the benefits experience for employees and administrators. Hodges-Mace is currently leveraging APIs and other integrations with leaders in healthcare, retirement and HR technology to simplify enrollment and communication processes and to create a more cohesive administration experience.
