”Achieving Oracle Validated Integration gives our customers confidence that the integration between AvaTax and Oracle E-Business Suite 12.2 is functionally sound and performs as tested,” said Kevin O’Brien, senior director, ISV and SaaS Strategy, Oracle. “For solutions deployed on premise, in the cloud, or both, Oracle Validated Integration applies a rigorous technical review and test process that helps to reduce deployment risk and improves the user experience of the partner’s integrated offering.”
“AvaTax’s integration with Oracle E-Business Suite can make it easy for customers to install and start saving time,” said Pascal Van Dooren, Chief Revenue Officer of Avalara. “We’re thrilled to achieve Oracle Validated Integration, and pleased to provide our solutions to customers in a fast, easy, and cost effective way.
