Bainbridge Island, WA – August 28, 2013 – Avalara (www.Avalara.com),  the market leading provider of sales tax and compliance automation services in the cloud, today announced Sana Commerce (www.sana-software.com), the integrated e-Commerce solution for Microsoft Dynamics NAV & AX, has joined Avalara’s growing list of certified solution partners. Avalara’s solution partners are software publishers that integrate Avalara’s software as a service (SaaS) offering for sales tax management directly into their own applications.

As a result of this partnership, customers can now use AvaTax’s capabilities from within a Sana web shop to automatically calculate sales tax. This eliminates the tedious work and complexity of calculating taxes across multiple jurisdictions on multiple platforms and helps businesses focus on their core offering.

“One of the most important features of our product is the seamless integration with Microsoft Dynamics,” said Arno Ham, product manager for Sana. “Since Avalara is also based on a complete integration with Dynamics, this cooperation with Avalara will allow our users to easily calculate sales tax for their online orders.”

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. “Sana customers are now able to spend time on what matters most, delighting their customers and growing the business online.”
