Ebix Inc. Helps O'Reilly Auto Parts Communicate the Value of Health
Insurance and Other Employee Benefits
Santa Barbara, CA - March 16 , 2004 - Ebix Inc.
Ebix Inc. (www.Ebixweb.com), developer of Fringe Facts®
Communicator software, helps O'Reilly Auto Parts (NASDAQ: ORLY) communicate the value of
health insurance and other benefits with personalized employee benefit statements.
Christina Zahn, HR Information Coordinator for O'Reilly Auto Parts, uses Fringe Facts Communicator to
produce printed benefit statements for the company's more than 16,000 employees in 1,109 locations, in
18 states throughout the Midwest and Southeast.
Ms. Zahn stated, "Fringe Facts Communicator is the best benefit statement solution for us because it allows
us to customize our statements, work on the project in-house, and complete our project without relying on
a vendor. In addition, the cost of producing the statements compared to the value they provide to our team
members is very important. The Cost Recovery Analysis presented by Ebix showed our savings
over several years."
Ms. Zahn also said, "The primary reason we produce benefit statements is to illustrate to our team members
the value of their benefits. We also use benefit statements to demonstrate that compensation is more than
just your paycheck. It includes the worth of your benefits. Benefit statements help team members confirm
which benefits they are enrolled in and the level of coverage that they have. Our statements give a brief
summary for all of the benefits we offer, so they make team members aware of benefits that are available
that they may not be enrolled in."
William Smith, Business Development Director at Ebix says, "Our clients are constantly looking
at ways to improve their employees' understanding of employer paid benefits. We're all aware that improving
employees' appreciation of employer paid benefits improves retention and morale. Fringe Facts Communicator
has been helping employers improve employee retention for 25 years. Our latest release, version 6.2,
includes many ease-of-use features designed to further reduce the time it takes our clients to produce
professional quality statements."
Fringe Facts Communicator, part of the Fringe Facts suite of products and services offered by Ebix Inc., continues to be the fastest, easiest, and most cost-effective way to provide benefit
statements. According to Business Insurance (December 8, 2003), Fringe Facts Communicator is the 2nd
largest employee benefits communication system used by benefits departments. Investing in Fringe Facts
Communicator should be seriously considered by any organization that is seeking an affordable, easy-to-implement
solution to communicate benefits.
