AvaTax now available for Cartweaver.com customers

Bainbridge Island, WA – March 20, 2012 – Avalara (www.avalara.com), the market leader and visionary in sales tax automation for businesses of all sizes, today announced Application Dynamics Inc, developers of Cartweaver4 PHP and Cartweaver 4 ColdFusion, has joined Avalara’s growing list of certified Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) partners.

Avalara’s OEM partners are software publishers that integrate Avalara’s software as a service (SaaS) offering for sales tax management directly into their own applications, typically under their own brand name. Avalara has concentrated on building OEM relationships since its inception and today its partner applications span all platforms, including enterprise resource planning (ERP) and financial/accounting, point of sale (POS), ecommerce, mcommerce, compliance, and customer relationship management (CRM) systems.

Cartweaver is an ecommerce software application that allows web designers and developers to quickly and easily deploy full featured online stores for themselves or their clients. “While Cartweaver makes it incredibly easy to develop an online store, there is one aspect of online selling that’s becoming increasingly difficult – sales tax management, said Lawrence Cramer of Application Dynamics. “Our partnership with Avalara allows us to offer Cartweaver users an affordable standalone solution that meets their sales tax compliance needs, no matter how thorny or complicated they might be.”

CEO and Founder Scott McFarlane said, “The rapid growth of our OEM partnerships represents a milestone on our quest to become the de facto transactional tax service provider across all applications and channels.  As one of America’s fastest-growing companies, Avalara is proud to welcome Application Dynamics and its family of Cartweaver users into our ever-expanding community.”
