BOS currently feeds or receives feeds from over 100 different vendors. In addition to insurance carriers, BOS communicates with payroll and HR systems, such as PeopleSoft, ADP, Ceridian, Lawson and others. Files are typically PGP encrypted and transferred via secure FTP. We support fixed width, delimited and 834 layouts. BOS does not force our formats on you or your vendors; we follow your layouts and your vendors’ layouts. Status and exception reports are generated for each feed and emailed to the appropriate personnel. BOS has also implemented Single Sign On (SSO) and other Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) transactions with vendors who require instantaneous information.
