ShawHankins, one of the leading employee benefit brokerage firms in Georgia, was recently honored by bswift, a leading employee benefit software firm, at their annual conference in Chicago.

ShawHankins is a full service employee benefits brokerage firm founded almost 50 years ago in Cartersville. Since that time, ShawHankins has grown its business by developing and communicating valuable and cost-effective employee benefit plans for their clients. Because of ShawHankins' steady and intentional growth, the firm has expanded its locations from a corporate office and service center in Cartersville, to satellite offices in Albany, Cumming, and Rome, and Birmingham, Ala.

bswift began in Chicago 11 years ago and offers software and services that streamline HR and benefits administration. More than 5,000 companies tap bswift's state-of-the-art Software-as-a-Service technology and Business Process Outsourcing solutions to significantly reduce administrative costs and time-consuming paperwork, making life easier for HR staff and employees alike.

bswift has emerged as a national independent leader in benefits administration software and services. Business Insurance consistently ranks bswift among the top five benefits administration software firms in the nation. The firm's rapid growth and market leadership are attributed to the strength of its highly configurable, best-in-class technology and the increasing number of brokerage firms, like ShawHankins, offering benefits administration as part of their core value proposition.

ShawHankins received two distinguished awards earlier this month at the annual bswift Summit, a national industry conference for Human Resources and benefits professionals held this year at the University of Chicago's Booth School of Business.

The first award was the "MVP Award," presented to the leading bswift Reseller in the nation for 2010. The second was the "Largest Growth Award" for largest percentage increase in clients with bswift products and services in 2010. ShawHankins competed against all other Reseller Partners across the country that utilize bswift's benefits administration software and services.

"We are honored to receive these two awards from one of our most valued strategic partners," said Scott Hankins, President and CEO of ShawHankins, Inc. "Our ability to build and maintain this technology for our clients gives us a significant strategic advantage in the market place."

"bswift salutes ShawHankins for their strong partnership in bringing benefits administration solutions to employers who -- now more than ever -- need guidance and expertise in navigating the complex and rapidly changing world of benefits," said bswift CEO Rich Gallun. "We are more confident than ever in our continued growth and leadership in the benefits administration sector given our foundation of agile technology, superior customer service and expertise in the world of benefits. Ultimately, our goal is to help clients grow their operations efficiently, implement new benefit initiatives, engage employees, and reduce health costs."
