Streamline Insurance Meeting Scheduling
A fact that should alarm most companies is that on average 336 hours are dedicated to open enrollment each year, but only one hour is spent actually selecting their benefits. This is a sign that HR departments need to adapt the way they schedule meetings to save time and effectively discuss insurance open enrollment plans. Texting can be used to help alleviate the troubles of scheduling meetings by streamlining communications, and then with landline texting your reps can reach out to employees to get scheduling sorted.
With an SMS service provider, you’ll be able to establish personal two-way communication through your existing business number, also known as landline texting. Your reps can then have a one-on-one conversation with your employees to schedule insurance meetings at their preferred time and at their own pace. By using your existing business number to send bulk SMS, employees will be familiar with who to contact in order to schedule a meeting with their representative.
Increase Open Enrollment Awareness
Traditional techniques for sharing open enrollment dates and deadlines include sending emails, mailing postcards, printing infographics, and answering questions through call centers. Unfortunately, all of these methods have proven to be expensive and time consuming. A quick and cost-effective way to increase awareness of your company’s open enrollment period is to use mobile keywords, opting in for your employees to receive text alerts that are read 98% of the time.
By advertising a mobile keyword you can sign employees up and track which employees have received the essential information and are aware of the upcoming healthcare enrollment period. By creating multiple keywords, you can effectively sort your employees into specific distribution lists to send targeted enrollment information. By choosing to send these messages via bulk SMS instead of traditional methods, you will save valuable time and resources while maximizing employee awareness.
