Infoman Receives Award for Excellent Customer Service at Insights

20 May

Insights, the annual Sage conference for its business partners, was held in Denver, Colorado this year. The conference just ended today, and I’m actually writing this blog post waiting for my flight home to Seattle-my flight has been delayed by a maintenance issue. Nobody wants a delay while trying to get home, but hey-it’s better to be safe than sorry!

Insights 2010 was a well planned and executed conference, thanks to Sage employee Suzanne Spear and her capable event planning team. The Colorado Convention Center had ample space for our conference and could actually accommodate events much larger than ours. And the two-story tall blue bear peering into the lobby of the Center certainly is impressive and humorous!

The Center includes the beautiful Wells Fargo Theater in which the Sage management team presented keynote addresses on corporate direction, partner programs, and product announcements.

The Theater was also the venue where Infoman received the prestigious Sage award for providing excellent customer service. We have only our valued clients to thank for this award, and the entire Infoman staff thanks you again for your votes of confidence!

Accounting for the Impact of Health Care Reform

15 May

Now that the health care reform package has been finalized, employers need to be aware of its many provisions. Some small employers (less than 50 employees) may notice little change. However, larger employers will definitely be impacted–in their accounting for health care plans, the tax implications for their business, and in the definition and structure of the plans themselves.

Officially, the reform package is made up of two acts: the “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” and the “Health Care and Education Reconciliation Act.” If you’d like to read a good summary of the acts’ hundreds of pages of text, check out this link on the site Lexology: http://www.editurl.com/gf7.

We’ll all learn more about what’s required of employers as the federal government (including the Internal Revenue Service) and insurance companies sort out the details. In the meantime, start to become familiar with the highlights of the reform package. You’ll be glad you did!

How do you expect health care reform to affect your business, including your business management software? Post a comment and share your thoughts!
