Employee Portals Going Mobile

Lockton Benefit Group’s Mike Smith weighs in on the future of employee portals in an article for Employee Benefit Adviser.

“Overall, the direction of employee portals, which has historically been employer-based through technology firms or vendor-based through benefit administration firms and carriers, is becoming mobility based,” Smith says in the article. There is a “ton of investment” into the digital health and mobile space, he adds.

“Behind all the investment in new technologies and mobile is the ability to run analytics behind employee portals,” Smith says in the article. “The phone and the apps and location sensors/data are … smashing together and creating this opportunity. Pretty soon, analytics will start talking to each other, the Internet of Things.”

“Who knows what kind of doors that will open in benefits,” Smith adds.
