iMedia originally worked with the Local One Funds office and created an informational site that included basic information about the three funds: welfare, pension and annuity. When this first phase of the Welfare, Pension and Annuity Funds of Local One website
was launched, back in 2009, the broader vision was to eventually allow union members to be able to view their benefit accounts online.
When Local One Funds was ready, iMedia implemented against that vision, recently launching a member portal that allows users to not only view their benefit information, but to make some changes to it.
iMedia worked together with Syntonic Systems
, the company employed by Local One Funds as their database fund record keeper. iMedia’s web interface both reads from the current database and, in some instances, writes to it to make changes. Members log in from a link on the regular site and have instant access to their benefits information.
We’re delighted that we could help Local One Funds realize their vision for their site and that, with the completion of Phase 2, Local One Funds has made it easier and more convenient for members to access their benefits online.
