Our Story

Before BerniePortal, we handled HR the old-fashioned way. We were a small business based in Nashville, Tennessee trying to help local employers and individuals figure out healthcare, but we were spending just as much time on administrative work as we did helping our clients. 

Basically, we were drowning in paperwork. Sound familiar?

BerniePortal connects all the parts of the HR puzzle in a comprehensive, all-in-one HR tool, allowing employers to spend less time on administration, and more time building the businesses they love.

BerniePortal History

Founder Alex Tolbert learns about Health Savings Accounts. He’s ready to change the world, one employer group at a time.


Alex’s brother Brian joins the company…and doubles the staff.


Two years in, business is great – but the administrative work is taking a toll. Hey, what if we built a solution? And the all-in-one benefits and HR software, BerniePortal, was born.


After 8 years of getting BerniePortal just right with our own clients, we launch into a new market – the nation’s trusted benefit advisors.


We surpass 200 broker partners and 120,000 BerniePortal users.


We launch the BerniePortal Broker Network to get BerniePortal in front of as many employers and HR professionals as possible.


We make HR easier for every business in America – or at least, that’s the plan!
