We can be both your broker, software, and strong point of contact. We act as an "extended HR" for our customers - any issues they have with bills, insurance companies, or doctors - we help them navigate.
My contact info is in my profile - feel free to reach me, and I will get your company set up.
I've worked at places where the salary probably sounded really great to an outsider but there were no benefits; this is not that uncommon in small tech companies from what I've seen. I've also worked where the salary was more in the middle or lower end of what you might expect but there were large contributions to insurance and retirement plans and generous amounts of paid time off.
We faced the same problem a year ago finding insurance for our startup. One major pain point was that everyone just made us sign up and connected to a insurance agent who sent us a bunch of official looking PDF docs. I had to sit and do my research to understand the plans. During that process I landed on this NYTimes article http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/28/health/28patient.html?_r=0
None of the agents sent me a High deductible plan. Then when I asked them, the "researched" and sent me back more PDFs with high deductible plan, which we eventually enrolled.
There are so many options in this space - so I would like you to "educate" me before asking me to give you my contact details.
Making the decisions easier is one thing, changing the industry is another. I wish them luck with the latter.
As a user of bswift I was given a printed booklet specific to my company and was presented with the easiest web page enrollment and benifit summary I've ever seen.
Will you be a competitor to apps like bswift? What are your plans for differentiation (if any)?
1) Your front page essentially contains one button "Get free quotes", which takes you to another page with a form. Why not display that form on the front page? One less click = better conversions.
2) Why do I need to enter
A) company name
B) my email
C) employee names (what if I have 50?)
3) The phrase "get quotes" is a major turn off in my mind. It reminds me of thousands of health insurance websites that give you quotes after endless form fill outs and spam your email. Why can't you phrase it in a human way? "Find plans", "enter your information", etc.
Might be better worded as: "Here is some feedback. I hope it helps."
HN is for brutally honest feedback, not some sugar coated sissy politically correct worded observations that is useless to the creators of the site/software/service.
HN is for civil discussion:
" The most important principle on HN, though, is to make thoughtful comments. Thoughtful in both senses: both civil and substantial."
Decent interface, as anything, always room for improvement.
