The bnchmrk technology platform was developed in 2015 by Andrew Kimmel. The objective was to level the information technology playing field between employee benefits and other core business functions through the creation of world-class benchmarking analytics.
While serving as Director of Analytics for a national employee benefits brokerage firm, Andrew was responsible for advising and assisting employers in managing the costs of their health and welfare programs. Competitive market analysis was essential; however, finding actionable benchmarking reports was growing increasingly difficult. The available data was quickly outdated, limited in sample size, inherently biased, and often posed to be a conflict of interest. Many professional service industries along with the employee benefits field share these issues, but have been slow to incorporate cutting edge IT practices into their consulting models.
A passion for big data problem solving led Andrew to pursue a career in the field of business intelligence consulting following his tenure at the national brokerage firm. Quickly recognizing the inherent value of cross applications of current sales and marketing techniques, an innovative approach to collecting, processing and storing benefits data was formulated. This breakthrough gave rise to very successful outcomes, ultimately leading to the development of the bnchmrk proprietary analytics platform.
