Nucleus Research’s latest technology Value Matrix finds the benefits administration market has experienced significant growth during the past 12 months as organizations look to maximize the ROI from their human capital management (HCM) solutions.

“Benefits are an important part of the overall employee compensation package and retaining high quality employees is even more challenging in today’s market,” said Research Manager Evelyn McMullen. “We found companies across the market are continuing to invest in usability and func in an effort to meet the needs of an increasingly distributed workforce.”

The report shows that in the past 12 months, leaders in the space have invested in acquisitions to build out benefits coverage and functionality gaps in areas such as reporting and compliance. These leaders have also continued to expand partnerships and API integrations to better meet specific customer needs.
