A unit of Unum Group Corp. has updated the technology it uses to help workers sign up for benefits.

Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Company, Columbia, S.C., says its new, Web-based Harmoney enrollment system can help employers get daily reports on enrollment progress.

The system can help life benefits representatives communicate with employees and enroll them in Colonial Life programs one-on-one, in person, over the Internet or by telephone, Colonial Life says.

The system can handle employer-paid benefits as well as employee-paid benefits, the company says.
