Q1'2020 and Beyond


Avionté has a lot of exciting plans underway for 2020. Our product development themes for the year are experience, performance and expanded choice. Some of our overall themes and areas of focus for our different product lines include:



AviontéBOLD Front Office: Focusing on our Recruiter, Sales, Talent, and Contact Users


  • Automation: Focused in on our front office users' experience we are working to provide automation within key workflows. The goal of this effort is not only efficiency but also to provide a strong experience for our users.


  • Talent Experience: With a dedicated development team focused on our talent and contact users we are looking to further enhance the talent's experience with your organization with the goal of making the areas of our product your talent accesses not only easy to use, but generates a sticky experience that talent chose to come back for.


  • Client Experience: Similar to the talent experience we are focusing in on how your clients access the Avionté product and the experience they are seeking with the goal of improving their overall experience with your organization making you the desired staffing and recruiting provider. 


  • Reporting & Analytics: Additional standard reports will be added throughout 2020 based on compliance reporting needs, customer feedback, and industry trends. In addition, BI users will also see enhancements throughout the year. We will also add features such as Self Serve BI for users that want a deeper analytics experience.



AviontéBOLD Back office: Focusing on our Payroll and Billing Users


  • Web-Based Back Office: This effort is focused on providing our back office users a web-based experience all accessible from one location on the AviontéBOLD product.  We will begin our focus on Time Entry.


  • Compliance: Continued focus will be placed on compliance to ensure the application is compliant with state and federal changes that occur throughout 2020.



Expanded Partner Network


  • Mobile Workforce Management: Facing the challenge of scheduling employees for positions based on their availability as well as the available days/shifts, Avionté is expanding its partner network to include options that focus on providing us an on-demand staffing solution with a strong mobile-first presence.


  • Talent Engagement: As a staffing and recruiting firm one of the most common things heard from talent is that they do not hear from you enough. Partnering with solutions that focus on talent engagement will allow some of that burden to be removed by providing more automated, personalized communication with talent based on where they are in your pipeline.
