The days when employers worried about workers who lacked a home computer with internet access have come and gone. Today, more employers are concerned with how to enable their workers to make benefit elections on their smart phone or mobile device.
It’s not surprising when you realize the speed at which the mobile revolution is taking hold. When you hear that 13 million new iPhones are sold on the first weekend they are released, it’s not hard to believe that 70% of working age adults possess a smart phone or tablet with internet access. As these devices become more and more powerful and displays become larger and easier to read, you have to believe that it won’t be long before email and printed handouts are replaced by mobile enrollment.
