Paylocity and Employee Navigator Set New Standard with Launch of Single Sign-On (SSO) Integration

Integrated Partners
Nov 29, 2021

Employee Navigator, a market leading benefits and HR technology solution, today announced the launch of Single Sign-On (SSO) integration with longtime partner Paylocity, a top provider of cloud-based HR and payroll software solutions.

Employee Navigator and Paylocity first partnered in 2017 by launching a real-time integration are now raising the bar once again with the launch of Single Sign-On for employees. Over 2,500 leading national and regional brokers trust Employee Navigator’s online benefits management solution as a modern alternative to both legacy systems and less sophisticated products designed exclusively for the small employer market. With this launch, Paylocity and Employee Navigator continue their collaborative drive to solve complex industry challenges and realize true innovation within the insurance, HR, and payroll landscape.

“Every employer is complex regardless of their size and every HR wants to streamline administration in today’s tight employment market. Leading brokers know that if they want to retain customers or grow their business, they need to focus on administrative simplification for employers, and the past 8 months of work has allowed Employee Navigator to launch a robust infrastructure that allows employees to seamlessly, and securely, manage their benefits after logging into Paylocity. There’s a reason brokers recommend Paylocity, they continue to invest in modernizing their infrastructure to support great features like SSO” said George Reese, CEO of Employee Navigator.

It’s no secret that HR managers have been demanding seamless one-touch login for their employees, and most recognize the irreplaceable consulting support insurance brokers provide. The launch of this SSO satisfies both requirements by allowing virtually all benefit and HR tasks to be completed within a single portal while simultaneously strengthening a company’s relationship with their independent insurance broker. Employees who are logged into Paylocity can quickly and easily enroll in benefits, make changes, or access details, with all changes updated in real-time. Through this integration, organizations can simplify the enrollment process, reduce administrative burden for HR managers, and eliminate the need for employees to remember login credentials for multiple systems.

Today’s evolving security threats necessitate an evolved mitigation approach, which is why Employee Navigator and Paylocity designed SSO functionality using OpenID Connect, the industry’s most modern and robust identity layer. As opposed to the complicated deployment of third-party access management applications, this newly released SSO is fully integrated and easy for end users to configure and use.

The Single Sign-On is available to all Employee Navigator and Paylocity employers at no additional cost. It is currently enabled for all current employers using the integration and will be turned on automatically for new customers. To learn more about the Single Sign-On functionality or to opt-out, visit our Help Center.
