Chart Key
Average Rating
Average rating based on reviews
Number of total page views
Number of times compared to another product
Total number of reviews on IT Central Station
Number of followers on IT Central Station
The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score. The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score. (20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.) Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) * 80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews; two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old, as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.

What is Benefits Administration?

Benefits Administration refers to the umbrella of establishing, managing and updating benefits for the employees of an organization. Benefits Administration solutions are the responsibility of a Human Resources (HR) Department, itself usually overseen by Operations and closely maintained by IT. Corporations depend on Benefits Administration to oversee payroll, medical and other insurance choices, HIPAA, IRAs, 401ks, extra-curricular benefits, vacation time, sick time and maternity/paternity leave.

Software for Benefits Administration can be labor intensive for IT due to employee special needs, the ACA, taxes, compliance and ever-changing Federal, State and Municipal regulations. IT Central Station users are looking to maximize productivity through technology, saving time and improving collaboration and transparency.

Benefits Administration is one of the most “tech-heavy” segments of an organization, often running software that interacts with other software platforms, and depends on the extended enterprise. In order to make information more accessible in spite of organizational boundaries, Benefits Administration should have good extensibility, SAAS, mobility and web platforms.

Benefits Administration partners with IT to deliver analytics for strategic management decision-making. Actionable data and systems should allow IT Central Station users specific and secure points of access and integration. Overall, Benefits Administration needs IT to provide accurate data analysis to keep track of employee contracts and metrics. There should be agile, updates of employee details regarding date hired, marital status, dependents, hours worked and attendance. There is the part-time and temporary hires piece and maintenance of detailed records in case of an audit.

IT Central Station users look for Benefits Administration that syncs with overall organization strategy, culture and existing technology. Raw data search should be easy and tech leaders such as IT Central Station will offer useful integrated and related data to any search. This adds value and ROI to IT professionals.
