Vericred’s enrollment and member management API enables GoCo to reduce new employer group setup time from weeks to days while automating key functions for benefits administrators and HR teams

November 16, 2021 – Vericred, the API platform powering digital quote-to-card experiences in health insurance and benefits, today announced that GoCo, a leading provider of flexible software solutions for HR, benefits, and payroll, has selected Vericred’s enrollment and member management API to dramatically simplify and speed up small group benefits setup, enrollment, and administration. With the API integration, GoCo can now activate new groups for their employer customers substantially faster—within days instead of weeks—without manually forging individual connections between its platform and carriers to facilitate data exchange. 

Simplifying Benefits Administration  

GoCo is an all-in-one HR platform that streamlines time-consuming HR tasks, including benefits administration. With the integration of Vericred’s API, GoCo is, for the first time, automating previously manual employee benefits enrollment tasks for its small business customers. The move will save employers and brokers time and resources as they add or update benefits for employees. 

“Vericred’s enrollment and member management API has helped us unlock an unprecedented level of small group benefits automation previously available only to medium and large employers,” said Nir Leibovich, CEO of GoCo. “As a result, we’ve freed up internal resources, and made the enrollment process faster, easier, and better for employers, employees, and brokers. That is a huge competitive advantage for us during open enrollment periods and beyond.”

Connectivity for Seamless Data Exchange 

Vericred’s API enables GoCo’s platform to seamlessly connect to Vericred’s network of health insurance and employee benefits carriers, making the exchange of quoting, enrollment, and eligibility data between health insurance carriers, brokers, and GoCo instant. As a result, employee data is now automatically transferred to the carrier, removing manual data entry steps for the benefits administrator, and speeding up the path to enrollment for both the employee and employer. Additionally, any errors in the data are corrected before they even reach the carrier. 

“We are thrilled to be GoCo’s partner in blazing a new trail for the small group benefits industry and demonstrating the power that instant carrier connectivity can unleash,” said Michael W. Levin, CEO and co-founder of Vericred. “The GoCo platform is truly maximizing its integration with Vericred’s enrollment and member management API to deliver tangible value to its users.”

Vericred Powers Benefit Sync Dashboard  

GoCo’s Benefit Sync Dashboard puts the power into the hands of the HR and benefits administrators, giving them the tools to craft and automate their preferred workflows. By integrating with Vericred’s API, GoCo’s dashboard now provides users with end-to-end visibility into the entire enrollment transaction, including each stage of the transaction when it’s with the carrier.
