About Apprize Technology
Apprize got its start in 2001 inside a Benefits Brokerage Firm in Minnesota. The leaders of that firm were convinced that their clients deserved better benefit enrollment options. They decided to make the investment in software and people and became the first reseller of the BenefitsConnect software platform. In 2005, Apprize was formed as a separate company to provide benefit administration software and support services for benefit brokers and employers.
Today Apprize serves hundreds of employers with 200 to 5000 employees, across the country. We’ve learned a lot along the way. One size does not fit all, so we now offer a complete toolkit of benefit software and service to deliver a customized solution to any client’s needs and budget. We’ve also learned that any technology is only as good as the people and service behind it, so we’ve created a unique “single point of contact” support model. And, we’ve kept what we knew from the start – that a team of benefit experts running best in breed technology delivers a better experience.
Today we are a reseller of bswift, Benefit Express and benefitsCONNECT.
Apprize is a unique company, as we blend both technology and employee benefits experience.
Because we are not the software developer, we have focused our business around the service and support that is essential to a successful benefit administration experience. We strive to become the standard by which you hold all service partners to.
As a service organization, we believe we provide a more hands on level of support, and clients are often surprised to find that our services go beyond what is standardly provided.
Although our staff is tech-savvy, they are also benefit professionals with background in HR & Benefits and understand the real world of benefits. They understand your benefit structure, will recognize and learn your internal processes and can anticipate how A affects Z.
By having a single point of contact at Apprize with a dedicated Account Executive, this person becomes an extension of your HR office. That means your calls are answered by your benefits expert, every time. They know you. They know your company. And they are there for you, from implementation, to ongoing support and beyond.

Public vs. Private: How Shortlister Gets Paid
|Shortlister Public Site
|Who can Access Shortlister?||Versions of the Shortlister app are available for employers and benefits consultants to access detailed information on service providers and issue RFPs.||Anyone can access the basic vendor data listed on the Shortlister public site, free of charge.|
|Do employer & consultant users pay to access Shortlister?||Yes – There is a monthly subscription fee||No – Shortlister's public site has tens of thousands of visitors per month that are researching vendors. They do not pay to access this basic vendor data.|
|Do service providers pay to be listed?||No – Service providers can enroll on the Shortlister app for free.||No – Service Providers do not pay to be listed on the Shortlister public site.|
|Can service providers pay to improve their position?||No – The Shortlister app's matching algorithm is completely neutral & unbiased. It matches employer & consultant users with service providers based on how closely the buyers requirements match the service provider's capabilities.||Yes – ONLY on Shortlister's public site. Service providers can bid to show up higher on listing pages. This is how Shortlister is compensated for the substantial effort it takes to curate this pages and vet vendor data.|
|What if a service provider doesn't pay Shortlister?||Nothing – Service providers don't pay a fee to participate on the Shortlister app and are matched based on how well their capabilities align with a buyer's demographics and needs.||Service providers will still be listed on the pages for the services they provide, they will just be listed below those that have bid to list higher on that particular product page.|
|What about the Top Vendor lists at the top of the product listing pages? Is there a fee to be listed?||Not Applicable – The Shortlister app doesn't display Top Vendor lists because the algorithm generates a custom list based on the customer's needs.||Yes - There is a nominal fee of $50 per quarter that's charged if a service provider is approved for a Top Vendor list. Shortlister evaluates vendor capabilities & market performance data to determine who should be listed. Evaluating this data takes considerable time and effort, so the nominal $50 fee covers the cost of the work it takes to curate these lists. If a vendor applies for a Top Vendor list but doesn’t meet the criteria, they are not charged a fee.|
|Who provides reviews of service providers?||Reviews on Shortlister's app are collected from employers and consultants. Service providers are also able to collect reviews from their customers, once they are validated by Shortlister. When a user is logged into the Shortlister app, they can clearly see the source of the review.||Public site reviews are an aggregation of employer, consultant and provider-collected reviews. There is no way for public site visitors to differentiate the source of the review.|
|Do service providers see information and reviews put in the site by your users?||Service providers cannot see the information put in by Shortlister's consultant and employer users.||Service providers can see information that was collected from their own clients.|
