Bainbridge Island, WA – May 22, 2014 – Avalara, Inc., (www.Avalara.com), a leading provider of cloud-based software that delivers a broad array of compliance solutions related to sales tax and other transactional taxes, today announced aACE Software, a flexible, fully customizable all-in-one integrated accounting, CRM, and ERP platform, has joined Avalara’s community 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 now use AvaTax’s capabilities from within their existing aACE Software workflow to automatically calculate the final sales tax amount on every invoice. This eliminates the tedious work and complexity of calculating taxes across multiple jurisdictions and helps businesses focus on their core offering.
“If you sell taxable products or services, filing taxes can be a huge hassle – and it gets more challenging if your products and services have different tax rates, or if you conduct business in multiple states,” said Brian Voll, Director of Product Development for the aACE Software line of products. “Our integration with Avalara alleviates this complexity by making sales tax compliance simple and automatic for businesses of all sizes.”
Pascal Van Dooren, EVP of sales and marketing at Avalara said, “This partnership allows Avalara to provide its comprehensive solutions to aACE Software customers in a fast, easy and cost effective way. In today’s electronic world it just doesn’t make sense to manually manage sales tax. We’re pleased to welcome aACE Software into our community.”
Avalara pioneered a web-based compliance platform for sales tax automation a decade ago and now provides an end-to-end suite of transactional tax compliance services for businesses of all sizes. Today its SaaS solution integrates into numerous ERP systems, accounting packages, ecommerce shopping carts, Point of Sale systems, and mobile payment platforms.
