Bainbridge Island, WA – August 30, 2012 – Avalara (www.Avalara.com), the market leading provider of sales tax and compliance automation services in the cloud, today announced NitroSell (www.nitrosell.com), the leading integrated ecommerce provider for pcAmerica’s Cash Register Express and Microsoft Dynamic’s Retail Management System, 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.
