osCommerce and AvaTax: End-to-End Sales Tax Compliance

Platform: osCommerce

The osCommerce Connector for Avalara AvaTax is an open source module that seamlessly links osCommerce with AvaTax to calculate the correct sales tax amount, eliminate the headache of sales tax compliance and to reduce the risk of business audits. The module uses the sales tax address and line item information from the osCommerce order, making a secure SOAP request to the AvaTax service to process real-time sales tax calculations.

AvaTax is a web-based service that delivers instantaneous sales tax calculations using a centrally managed, highly accurate calculation engine leveraging up-to-date sales tax rates, rules and jurisdictional boundaries. Coupled with automated filing, remittance and exemption certificate management, the osCommerce Connector for AvaTax provides unprecedented sales tax functionality to boost business productivity while minimizing audit risk.

Pulsar crafts solutions and builds web-based applications for customers using a variety of approaches and methodologies that best fit the specific project requirements. The main project delivery model is based on the Agile (Scrum) methodology. Scrum provides for a much faster release cycle with the better quality control and flexibility that cannot be attained with traditional waterfall or iterative methodologies. At the same time, we also utilize iterative project development methodology for smaller-scale projects where it makes more sense. Under such model, we design and develop software based on initially formulated functional and technical specifications and deliver the complete application at the end of development and testing cycle. In general, we align our approach based on our customers’ project management model and requirements.
