Simpara Named A Top 50 Business in St. Louis

Less than two years since launch, Simpara has been named a Future 50 business by Small Business Monthly. The award recognizes our rocket-ship revenue growth and future potential but also our impact on the St. Louis community. This award is recognition of our work to reverse the trend in rising healthcare costs for businesses and their employees. We're restoring bottom-line growth, restoring wages to employees, and delivering a superior healthcare experience.

PTO Weekend Hours Are Here!

We're always expanding the functionality of our platform based upon our clients' feedback. Today we are pleased to announce that our Time-Off Tracking (PTO) Module has been enhanced to support weekend hours! 

Enhancements include: 

  • Weekend Hours: if your business operates on Saturdays and/or Sundays, employees can now request weekend time off. Our restaurants have been asking for this for a long time!
  • No more 8-hour full day limitations: we have added settings to customize how you define a full work day. If you have shorter hour days or have multiple shifts, you can now build this into your calendaring. 
  • Variable Full Days: this new feature allows employees to enter the number of hours including start-time and end-time they are requesting off. 
  • Dashboard Enhancements: we've cleaned up and enhanced the employee Time Off dashboard to provide more insights and better visuals without having to click through multiple screens.

Controlling health care spending requires a shift in mindset. For most companies, health care is the second largest expense after payroll. However, as is often the case, most companies don’t apply the same level of care to their health care spending that they do to other large expenditures. You run a healthcare business whether you like it or not.
