MuleSoft Powers AvaTax Integration with Oracle E-Business Suite to Automate Invoicing and Tax Calculation
Bainbridge Island, WA – March 11, 2013 – Avalara (www.Avalara.com) the market leading provider of sales tax and compliance automation services in the cloud, today announced it has certified the integration of AvaTax, Avalara’s software as a service (SaaS) solution for sales tax management, with Oracle E-Business Suite (EBS).
The integration is powered by MuleSoft, the provider of the world’s most widely used integration platform, and allows AvaTax to automate the invoicing and tax calculation process within the Oracle E-Business Suite application. Oracle E-Business Suite is a comprehensive suite of integrated, global business applications that enable organizations to make better decisions, reduce costs and increase performance.
Since its founding nearly a decade ago, Avalara has pioneered the service-based platform for tax automation and emerged as the dominant player in this market by leading the automation effort for financial, ecommerce, POS and mobility applications. Today Avalara’s SaaS solution provides a complete set of transactional tax compliance services for businesses of all sizes.
“The Oracle EBS integration application for AvaTax is a great example of how MuleSoft can help SaaS companies quickly enter new markets,” said Chris Purpura, vice president and general manager of cloud integration at MuleSoft. “MuleSoft gives companies like Avalara the ability to integrate their application with existing customer systems, opening up new markets and removing one of the largest barriers in their sales cycles.”
The Oracle EBS integration application, built and managed on CloudHub, MuleSoft’s integration platform as a service (iPaaS), allows Oracle EBS customers to reduce time and reduce risk with accurate sales tax calculations. Using the Oracle EBS integration application users will reduce time spent calculating tax and performing double data entry between systems. In addition Oracle users will reduce risk with accurate tax calculations and synchronized report details in both AvaTax and Oracle EBS.
CEO and Founder Scott McFarlane said, “Avalara eases the burden of statutory sales tax requirements by providing a fast, easy way to manage indirect taxes that is as accurate and affordable for small and mid-size businesses as it is for large corporations. “Oracle EBS customers are now able to spend time on what matters most, delighting their customers and growing the business.”
The AvaTax integration for Oracle EBS is delivered in conjunction with OAC Services, a leading technology, application and management consulting firm and Oracle Gold Partner. For those AvaTax customers with customized implementations of Oracle EBS, OAC Services can assist in the configuration and deployment of the packaged integration solution, accelerating customer time to live.
