Bernie Becomes More Widely Available
This time period marked a very exciting time in the small employer HR technology space, and we decided to spin BerniePortal out of Bernard Benefits into its own, standalone business. This allowed it to be available to employers everywhere – the incubation period was over. And it worked! BerniePortal almost immediately began generating serious revenue on its own. For those of you counting, that is about eight years after writing the first line of code!
BerniePortal continued to experience rapid growth in 2017, and in 2018 its revenues even grew to be larger than the revenues of Bernard Benefits, which continues to be a thriving firm in its own right.
