Being an ERO you can e-file the 1099s through the ATX software. 

For W-2s, you must have a user id from SSA that is obtained by creating an account the BSO (Business Services Online) section on the SSA site.  Once you have registered with SSA and have that number, you can create the W-2s in ATX and use the ATX e-file function to convert that into a data file.  That data file must be uploaded directly through the SSA site.   Alternately, W-2s can be created and filed directly on the SSA site, but this isn't going to have the roll forward features that your tax software does.

On what date will efile open for filing 2019 Form 1099? Tried to file them tonight and get the message that "the service is unavailable at this time".

January 27, 2020.  Nothing before that date.

I believe the IRS FIRE system opened up on January 10th.

However that doesn't mean that ATX is ready yet ?

cbslee is correct. The IRS FIRE system is open, but ATX doesn't produce the file that the user can get to in order to file directly on the FIRE site, and the tax pro would also have to register to use the FIRE system too, not something ATX users do if filing through the ATX software.
