A New View of Avionte: Building on the New Aero Platform
The Aero platform is the next generation of Avionté. The platform was built API first, allowing us to leverage the strengths of our Core system while building a new Anytime, Anyplace, for Anyone user interface. The Recruiter Module, Job Board Module and Talent Module are all part of the upcoming 16.2 release and while the user interface has changed and new features and integrations have been added, the modules still leverage the same core data and flow through to all of Avionté’s back office systems.
The new modules offer many workflow efficiencies, such as:
- Faster and more effective resume parsing
- Boolean searching with dynamic filters
- Quicker access to view data
- Anytime, Anywhere, Any Device access
- Automated activity logging (where/when appropriate)
- Ability to create multiple, branded job boards and many other features
Starting with the 16.2 Release in September, you will have access to the same Core Features and User Interfaces you have grown to love, while also having access to all the new Modules on the Aero platform. This will allow you and your team time to become familiar with the new platform and provide feedback on the new platform all without any risk to your daily productivity. To understand which features and functionality will be present within the new modules on the Aero platform, read the August Looking Glass!
The Looking Glass: The Roadmap, Past, Present and Future
There are so many great things that Avionté’s product and development teams are working on. We are pushing the boundaries to bring you best-in-class features and functionality to go along with our top-notch customer service. Together, we will build staffing software, the way it should be!
This month, we are excited to release our product roadmap for the next 3 Releases: 16.2 (September 2016), 16.3 (November 2016) and 17.1 (February 2017). Let’s take a look through the looking glass to see what is currently on the roadmap; The Past, Present and Future of ideas are just a click away!
Compliance Corner: ACA Subsidy Notices
Have you received a subsidy notice? If not, be on the lookout. In late June, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) started mailing out notices to employers alerting them that one of their employees was certified as eligible for a premium tax credit (subsidy) through the federal Health Insurance Marketplace.
If you are in a state with a state-run exchange, you may have received these notices back in 2015; However, this will be the first time they are being sent out from the federal exchange and for states that have a federally-operated exchange. For a complete list of the exchanges by state, view the list here. Back in September 2015, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced that subsidy notices would not go out for 2015, meaning employers will first hear of the subsidy from the IRS when they issue employer penalties. There will be no employer subsidy appeal process for 2015.
The notices currently being mailed out are for those employees that received a subsidy for “at least one month in 2016”. These notices alert the employer that the employee said: 1) they weren’t offered health care coverage, 2) they received an offer of healthcare that was either unaffordable or didn’t provide minimum value,or 3) they were within a waiting period and could not enroll.
