Perks Made Simple: 6 Basics of Abenity

Our one goal at Abenity is “Perks Made Simple”, and I wanted to take a moment and explain what that means for us. We’ve built a perks model that truly places you, our clients, first and aligns our goals with your own.

When you boil it down, here’s how Abenity embodies Perks Made Simple:

1) It means Over $4,500 In Savings for your members featuring private discount offers from some of the most popular national brands like Sam’s Club, Firestone, Regal & AMC Theaters, HP, Costco, and many more.

We’ve tallied up the savings on some of our most popular national offers. You’ll be surprised at how quickly the savings add up!

2) It means Easy Mobile Access so your members can access their discounts wherever they are, at home or on the go with their smartphone.

We’ve put a ton of work into making Abenity the most mobile accessible perks program over the past year. Check out our responsive design, branded app icons, and mobile eTicket store.

3) It means No Hidden Fees in our movie and theme parks ticketing store, which means the price listed in our store is the price your members will have to pay. No surprises, no gotchas, and that’s a big deal because we’re the only discount program provider that can say that.

4) It means Flexible Branding Options so that you can confidently present your organization as the valued provider of your discount program.

At the core, we help our clients engage their members on a deeper, more meaningful, and more seamless level. We do that by positioning you – our client and partner – as the provider of your perks program with dozens of integrated customization options.

5) It means Consistent Member Engagement where we’ll work by your side to communicate your perks and build loyalty.

Each program is equipped you with a full arsenal of 40+ marketing tools that make it easy to spread the word about your program to members, including suggested email copy, videos, flyers, vendor logos, custom product and branding options, and a personalized program launch document.

6) It means Powerful Back Office Tools where we give you everything you need to control your perks program, build engagement, administer your benefits, and track your success in one comprehensive online software suite.

The tools we provide in our new Back Office speak to the core of Abenity’s purpose and our managed services approach. Your goals are our goals – we provide you with the marketing tools, recognition resources, and analytics you need to increase loyalty, maximize profitability, and heighten morale inside your organization.

How to Engage Millennials with Voluntary Benefits

Engage Millennial EmployeesAs a new generation of employees enters the workforce, employers are needing to take a renewed look at how they engage the Millennial Generation.

Born between the years 1980-2004, Millennials think differently, communicate differently, and work differently than their predecessors. With all of these generational differences at play employers often run into challenges as they work to engage the “Facebook Generation.”

We recently sat down with Employee Benefit Adviser magazine to chat about how to engage the Millennial generation with voluntary benefits. While these confident and idealistic workers are a huge asset to companies, they are often very confused and in need of guidance when it comes to making choices about corporate benefits.

What I've found is that transparency is the cardinal virtue of Millennials, and you won't gain their trust without it.

Of any age group, Millennials are the least likely to adopt voluntary benefits, but 50% of employees cite benefits as an important reason they remain with their current employer. And 86% of Millennials say they especially value having benefits personalized to meet their individual circumstances and age.

What I’ve found is that transparency is the cardinal virtue of Millennials, and you won’t gain their trust without it. In Abenity’s industry of employee perks, employee discount programs have become notorious for shady tactics that Millennials see right through. These tactics include complex points-based schemes and the addition of extra taxes and fees on tickets to popular theme parks and movie theaters, driving employee savings down and provider profits up.

As you can imagine, this practice severely damages loyalty from Millennials and it’s why we’ve invested so much in technology that allows our clients and broker partners to deliver a truly transparent perks experience.

HR leaders have a unique opportunity to guide their younger employees toward making wise choices when it comes to perks and benefits. Shepherding these Millennial employees has a direct impact on engagement, and the strategies you can implement may not be as foreign as you might expect.

Check out the entire article on the Employee Benefit Adviser website, and let me know what you think in the comments!

Abenity Helps Minimize the Threat of Identity Theft with IdentitySecure

Within four days after the first public reports of the major flaw in internet server security known as Heartbleed surfaced, mass attacks searched for and actively targeted vulnerable systems.

The catastrophic flaw allowed attackers to mine cryptographic keys and passwords, and some experts argued that Heartbleed was the worst vulnerability discovered since the dawn of the Internet.

Still, months after the initial rush to patch systems, approximately 50 percent of potentially vulnerable servers have been left unpatched, making Heartbleed an ongoing, critical threat. And every year widely publicized incidents of cyber breaches occur, like the ones that have recently plagued Target, JP Morgan, and UPS.

With so much of our daily lives wrapped up in technology, weaknesses in cyber-security may be the greatest threat of our time. At risk are our financial accounts, our personal privacy, and our identity. Sadly the potential for identity theft is not an exaggerated and hollow threat; it’s a reality of our day and age.

Frank Abagnale, FBI security consultant and subject of a blockbuster movie “Catch Me If You Can” notes that identity theft is “an amazing and simple crime. There are 15 million victims in the United States each year. One every two seconds in the United States.”

Protect Your Identity with Abenity and IdentitySecure

While it’s impossible to prevent every instance of identity theft, you can protect yourself, your family, and your assets. Abenity has partnered with IdentitySecure to offer our members state-of-the-art, custom identity protection products.

IdentitySecure guards against all of the main types of identity fraud, providing truly comprehensive protection you can count on.

Recent studies from Towers Watson, an insurance consulting firm, shows that Identity Theft Protection is the #3 fastest growing voluntary benefit being requested by employees this year. And that’s no surprise – every year we spend more time online, we make more purchases on the internet, and we place more trust in the technology integrated into our everyday lives.

Our credit cards, social security numbers, drivers license information, health and medical records, bank account information, tax records, and account usernames and passwords are all stored in vast and disparate internet databases. A weakness in even one of these databases could spell disaster for our personal information and financial livelihood.

It’s Abenity’s goal to help our members lead more rewarding lives, through the perks and discounts we provide. But perhaps our most important responsibility is to help members protect what they already have. Health insurance, car insurance, and homeowners insurance protect the people and physical belongings most dear to us. But Identity Theft Protection defends those assets that we don’t see: our financial information, our digital assets, and our personal identities.

In this 21st Century world, we need to protect against 21st Century threats. We are proud to partner with IdentitySecure to offer the most cutting edge and affordable identity theft protection available inside the Abenity Perks Program. Log in today to learn more and get started.

Every 3 Seconds, Someone Loses Their Identity

IdentitySecure guards against all of the main types of identity fraud, providing truly comprehensive protection you can count on including Daily Credit Monitoring, Identity Verification Monitoring, and Fraud Assist Toolbox.

Abenity Recognized as Fastest Growing Small Business & Our Keys To Success

Eight years ago when we started Abenity, we were trying to solve a simple problem: Organizations needed a way to communicate employee perks without wasting time for Human Resources or leaving great benefits lost in the fray.

And now, on the heels of our third-year straight of being recognized as one of Nashville’s fastest growing small businesses, we’re feeling confident that we were on to something eight years back.

But Abenity has certainly become so much more than just a way for companies to manage their employee perks. Professional associations, alumni groups, and brands needing a customer loyalty solution use us too. And it’s not just about managing perks either – Abenity is a technology company, and as a result we’ve developed some pretty cool tools for our clients and features for our members in the last 24 months.

We’re the only full service perks company offering a built in ticketing store where members can purchase movie and theme park tickets at deeply discounted prices. We’ve made accessing perks on mobile devices simple by leveraging responsive web design technology, which means no apps to download and update. We’re hyper focused on local, while staying on-top of the big picture. Our members can find hundreds of discounts right in their own neighborhood, but we also give them access to perks from thousands of name-brand national retailers.

We’re always looking to innovate, to challenge the status quo and to listen to the needs of our clients.

At Abenity it started with solving one simple problem, but we couldn’t stop there. If anything we’ve learned that our key to success are these three building blocks: Always look to innovate, challenge the status quo, and to listen to the needs of your clients.

A heartfelt thank-you to our clients, members, and vendor partners for making Abenity one of the fastest growing small businesses. Check out our recent feature in the Nashville Business Journal and join with us in celebrating over three years of incredible growth!

New Branded App Icon Design for Abenity Perks Programs

Now we’re debuting a new branded app icon design for all clients that places the focus on your organization’s logo and provides a simple, iconic reference to the program as the place for the perks and discounts.

Mobile accessibility for your perks program is one of the most compelling member engagement features that we offer. Perks are one thing, but perks that your members can access anytime, anywhere transforms your program into something of true value that is relevant to the daily lives of your members.

We’ve provided instructions on how to save a branded app icon to an iPhone home screen, as well as instruction on how to save a home screen bookmark on Android devices, on this Abenity 101 post.
