Beam Teams With ThreeFlow to Further Streamline RFP Process

COLUMBUS, Ohio (June 23, 2021) — Today, Beam Dental announced it is now a certified partner with ThreeFlow, a Benefits Placement System designed to help brokers and insurance providers buy, sell, and manage employee benefits in one shared system.

With Beam now on ThreeFlow, brokers can efficiently receive and compare dental quotes. By eliminating the manual and redundant processes that come with renewals and RFPs (request for proposals), brokers and Beam can dive into the details of benefits strategy, rather than tracking down missing details.

“As Beam continues to find ways to leverage tech to reach new brokers and employers, a partnership with ThreeFlow makes perfect sense,” said Andy Hutter, Beam’s director of digital distribution. “Their platform will allow us to build new and better relationships with brokers, so that even more people can access easy, smart, and preventive dental benefits.”

Beam is changing and modernizing the dental insurance industry by embracing a digital-first approach. With this mindset, the company focuses on three core tenets:

  • Easy: Beam’s digital platform makes everything from quotes to claims fast and easy for brokers, members and employers.
  • Smart: Smart pricing driven by machine learning means benefits brokers can get more accurate custom quotes* in as little as 30 seconds.
  • Preventive: Members who use Beam’s connected toothbrush may earn lower insurance rates based on their dental hygiene as well as incentives to maintain better wellness overall. Beam's brush program§ has produced over 54 million brushing seconds to date, helping employers control their insurance costs and helping members earn rewards#.

“As a Benefit Placement System, our software empowers brokers and carriers to collaborate together more effectively throughout the plan year,” said Ryan Sachtjen, CEO and co-founder of ThreeFlow. “Beam is one of the leading technology-driven dental insurance providers, focused on delivering the best broker and employer experience. We’re thrilled to support them as a certified partner available to all brokers on ThreeFlow.”
