Vista HRMS Offers Complete
Affordable Care Act Compliance Capabilities
IRS-Approved Solution Enables Users to Easily Track ACA Information and File Electronically at No Cost
Blue Bell, Pa., March 2, 2016 – PDS®, a leading provider of human resource, benefits, recruiting, payroll, and time and attendance software throughout the U.S. and Canada, today announced that its flagship software solution, Vista HRMS, has successfully produced 1095-C forms and electronically transmitted files to the IRS for many of its customers. Vista HRMS offers a comprehensive range of functionality for Affordable Care Act (ACA) compliance as part of the benefits and payroll applications, and at no additional cost to its customers. PDS provides tools and training to make the complex mandatory government reporting less cumbersome and easier to comprehend. Although the IRS has extended the deadline to furnish Forms 1095-B and 1095-C to individuals until March 31, 2016, PDS delivered the tools early so that customers had sufficient time to administer and audit their own data.
PDS is an IRS-approved vendor for electronic ACA filing. Vista HRMS enables customers to easily manage, track and comply with all of the Employer Shared Responsibility provisions of the ACA. It handles all of the nuances related to ACA filings, regardless of the size and nature of an organization or its workforce. It provides robust features to track hours, create reports, create transmission-ready files, produce 1094-C and 1095-C forms, and even trigger alerts if there are compliance issues. PDS also offers extensive support, training, integration, and other services to help customers meet the ever-changing ACA requirements.
“Our customers, like most organizations, have been concerned, confused and overwhelmed by the Patient Protection and ACA requirements. In 2013, we started reviewing the thousands of pages of the ACA law and developed a multi-year plan to enhance Vista HRMS and educate our customers to ensure their compliance with the law,” said Pat Palmer, senior vice president and product manager at PDS. “Unlike most vendors in the market that require their users to outsource the ACA compliance functions to their benefits provider at an additional cost, we are saving our customers significant time, money and frustration by including this comprehensive functionality as part of Vista HRMS.”
Vista HRMS provides a comprehensive ACA solution. Some of the key ACA features of PDS Vista HRMS include:
Automation of employee benefit eligibility to meet compliance and eliminate financial penalties
Tools to manage and audit employee ACA date and reporting scenarios
Numerous audit reports that alert non-compliance conditions
Automated workflows to gather 1095-C e-delivery consent
Creation of 1094-C and 1095-C forms
Creation of IRS transmission files
