Avionte Unveils Payment Stub Mobile App
Amid a chronic shortage of workers, employment agencies continue to explore new options for attracting new employees. This week, a Bloomington-based software company Plane rolled out a new payslip platform aimed at improving the worker experience. Known as 24/7 Pay, the mobile app allows employees working through a staffing agency to access all salary and tax information via their smartphones or tablets.
It may seem like a minor detail, but Avionte executives believe it’s a “key differentiator” for recruiters.
Christopher Ryan, director of strategy and marketing at Avionte, describes the offering as another step towards “consumerizing the employee experience”.
According to him, the trend is comparable to what has happened in travel agencies over the past decade. Essentially, people will now turn to the internet to buy a plane ticket rather than bothering to call a travel agent. This also applies to workers looking for a job: people prefer to interact with the job market through an app.
“A lot of people say, ‘Well, where are the workers and why aren’t they showing up?’ And I flip the question around and say, ‘Why are we making it so hard for them to show up? If we really appreciate them, why don’t we value their time? “, did he declare.
Ryan said that over the years Avionté has continued to develop software with this question in mind: “How do you make the job as easy and fun as ordering a product from Amazon?”
Founded in 2005 by John Long, Avionté won the Inc. list 5000 10 consecutive years, the last in 2021. With more than 1,000 customers, the company is now the second largest software provider for American recruitment companies with 2.5 million people receiving a W2 produced on Avionte software each year.
There’s a lot of excitement around what employment will look like in the next five to 10 years, excitement that has helped the company grow, Ryan said.
It’s no secret that labor shortages have left many employers on the hook. People are asking for flexibility in both timing and location. Some may work 40 hours a week, but not a nine-to-five gig. Some are looking for remote work, while others prefer to be in person.
“The idea here is that once you decide you want to be employed and you show up for a certain amount of time – and it doesn’t have to be eight o’clock anymore, it can be three o’clock at a place or five to another – how fast can you get these people to sign up, join, schedule, track their time, get paid?It’s that time compression that’s so critical.
