While the vast majority of honorees in our annual Top New Products listing are software and applications, there’s a reason we don’t call it the “Top New Computer Programs.”……Read on to see the 2016 list:

Affordable Care Act Tools

ONESOURCE ACA Reporting & Compliance (Thomson Reuters)

Helping businesses of all sizes comply with the Affordable Care Act is one of the great opportunities of the past few years (as well as one of the bigger nightmares), and we’ve named Thomson Reuters’ ONESOURCE ACA Reporting & Compliance tool as one of our Top New Products for managing the distribution and filing of the forms associated with Obamacare for all the organizations that need to send out 1095-As, Bs and Cs. The Web-based tool tracks form corrections, collects consent forms for electronic distribution, and helps with managing file errors when e-filing with the IRS.

We gave Greatland’s Yearli an Honorable Mention, for adding the ability to file Forms 1095-B and C with the IRS and send copies to recipients, as well as developing a toolkit of great ACA-related resources for users.

Software Platforms

Onvio (Thomson Reuters)

The cloud has certainly made collaboration and integration easier — but it hasn’t eliminated friction entirely. For that, you need to look at tools that were built from the ground up to interact, and that’s what Thomson Reuters’ new Onvio platform promises, with the added benefit of not having been built on the ground, but in the cloud. It’s designed to give a single look and feel as well as a common database to a host of tax and accounting-related tools, and it launched with two core modules, Onvio Documents for document management and Onvio Client Center, a portal for securely sharing information with clients and staff. Thomson Reuters has already added Onvio Time and Billing, and plans more additions in the future.
