PBS ACA Management and Reporting

Passport Software’s New

Affordable Care Act Management and Reporting Solution

Passport’s new ACA software solution not only allows employers to file required 1094-c and 1095-c forms but also helps manage and anticipate ACA related decisions such as work schedules and insurance obligations throughout the year.

Employers with 50 or more full-time equivalent employees (FTE) must file their ACA (Affordable Care Act) reports in January of 2016 for the 2015 calendar year.

The PBS ACA Management and Reporting solution offers several levels of functionality based on the requirements of ACA for Applicable Large Employers (ALEs) with 50 or more FTEs, which include the following:

ACA Essentials Edition – for single companies with up to 249 FTE employees all under one PBS company. Prints the
1094-C and 1095-C Federal forms and includes management reports.

ACA Corporate Edition – for single companies with 250 or more employees under one PBS company. Handles printing
and electronic filing of 1094-C and 1095-C Federal forms. Includes management reporting.

ACA Enterprise Edition – for companies requiring multi-company consolidation to bring employees of multiple companies into one pool and consolidate them into a single 1095-C per employee. Handles printing and electronic filing of 1094-C and 1095-C Federal forms. Includes management reporting.

ACA Accounting and Payroll Service Providers – for Accounting firms and Payroll Service Providers who assist clients with their accounting and end of year State and Federal reporting requirements. Handles single or multi-company requirements, printing and electronic filing of 1094-C and 1095-C Federal forms and includes management reporting.

Passport’s ACA Management Reports include:

  • 1095-C Federal forms required for each insurance-eligible employee.
  • 1094-C Authoritative transmittal summary for a company or ALE (Applicable Large Employer) Group.
  • ALE Calculation Report – Determine if a company is subject to ACA regulations.

The Network

The Network – InfoServ co-sponsors The Network, a bi-monthly business-to-business networking event.  The Network meets on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month.  During the meeting, attendees are given two minutes to give their elevator pitch to others at the table.  After everyone has had an opportunity to speak, we switch tables and do it again!  In total, we get in three rounds at each meeting.  We further encourage attendees to have one-to-one meetings outside of The Network so they can get to know each other on a personal level.  After all, people like to recommend people they like and that is what business-to-business networking is all about!  There are no membership fees and no meeting fees; it is free to participate.  Visit The Network’s web site at www.TheNetworkOwensboro.com for details about meeting locations.

InfoServ Becomes Authorized Dealer for Point of Success

InfoServ is now an authorized dealer for Point of Success, a point of sale system designed specifically for restaurants.  Point of Success works great in a fine dine, fast food, quick serve, deli, pizza and other types of restaurants.

Kevin L. Bruner, President of InfoServ said, “We have had many requests over the years to supply point of sale systems to the restaurant industry.  I’ve looked at several.  Some are just outrageously expensive to purchase and maintain while others are extremely low-end.  Point of Success by Inborne Technology Corporation of Mesa, Arizona is a great fit for most restaurants.  It is feature and benefit rich, yet is at an affordable price point.”

Point of Success is used in over 6,500 restaurants and bars of all types with licenses for more than 14,000 computers.  Our first installation is scheduled for Anthony’s Heavenly Cheesecake in Evansville, Indiana.  If you are ever in the area, stop in for an amazing piece of cheesecake!

What does this mean for PBS users still running on Windows XP?

Passport cannot guarantee that future releases of PBS will continue to be compatible on the XP, and therefore we strongly recommend that you move to a new, supported system as soon as practical.   InfoServ currently recommends Windows 7 Professional.
