I think it would be beneficial to both EaseCentral and BambooHR to integrate, so that clients aren't having to go through onboarding in BHR, and then make elections within EaseCentral.
We've looked at this with some of our clients...it's important to them that the feeds be bi-directional (so that they can pull EE info into the BenAdmin, then also pull enrollment/deduction info back to their HRIS). This would be true regardless of the HRIS from what we hear.
I too would greatly benefit by integration between BambooHR and EaseCentral. A lot of time would be saved if I didn't need to manually sync the two systems. And, yes, it should be bi-directional.
We talk to quite a few companies who use Bamboo HR and would like to use Ease as well. Interested in any way to make these two systems talk - To my knowledge, Ease has API capability (though not an "open API"). If nothing else, perhaps a preferred/trusted vendor could be tasked with linking the two systems...? OR, if this is not possible, adding certain features that Bamboo offers could be great.
