Bainbridge Island, WA – July 24, 2015 – Avalara, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based software delivering compliance solutions related to sales tax, VAT, and other transactional taxes, today announced ECi e-automate® software, a business system for dealers in the service technology industry, has joined Avalara’s community of certified solution partners.
