Seattle, WA – March 15, 2016 – Avalara, Inc., a leading provider of tax compliance automation for business, today announced Greystone Technology, a technology services company specializing in managed IT Services and app development, has joined Avalara’s community of certified solution partners.
Greystone was certified for the integration it built between Avalara and QuoteWerks, a leading sales quoting and proposal solution. As a result, customers who use QuoteWerks can now benefit from Avalara, which automatically calculates sales tax for every invoice line item, in real-time. Avalara helps reduce the tedious work and complexity of calculating taxes for millions of products and services across the U.S., Canada, Europe, and dozens of other international jurisdictions, giving customers more time to focus on driving their own business success. In addition, QuoteWerks customers can add Avalara’s tax return preparation, filing, and remittance services.
Greystone initially built the QuoteWerks integration for its own use and, after recognizing the benefits of Avalara’s Compliane Cloud™ platform, made it available to all QuoteWerks users. “Automating sales tax calculation and remit was an easy decision,” said Jesse Armstrong, CEO of Greystone Technology. “Our integration with Avalara help us keep up with our growth while broadening our loyal customer base. We’re now pleased to provide QuoteWerks customers with easy access to Avalara’s tax compliance solution, which helps reduce costs and increase audit preparedness, allowing users to focus on their core business.”
Pascal Van Dooren, Chief Revenue Officer at Avalara said, “Our partnership with Greystone allows Avalara to provide its comprehensive solutions to QuoteWerks customers in a fast, easy and cost effective way.
