  • Jul 17, 2015 | Avalara

Bainbridge Island, WA – July 17, 2015 – Avalara, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based software delivering compliance solutions related to sales tax, VAT, and other transactional taxes, today announced AscentERP, a leading Force.com ERP solution, 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, AscentERP customers now have access to AvaTax™, Avalara’s cloud-based solution, 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.

“We are extremely pleased to announce certification with Avalara,” said Shaun McInerney, president of AscentERP. “As an ERP solution focused on distributors, manufactures and companies that rent equipment, it is extremely important that we offer our customers the ability to calculate tax from an Ascent sales order, invoice, and credit memo.  The Avalara partnership is another important relationship that extends AscentERP’s reach and our ability to provide superior customer service and satisfaction.

“We continue to find ways to make it easier and more efficient for our customers to create quotations, sales orders and purchase orders,” McInerney continued. “AscentERP will continue to add strategic global partnerships in order to extend our reach.”

Pascal Van Dooren, Chief Revenue Officer at Avalara said, “This partnership allows Avalara to provide its comprehensive solutions to AscentERP 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 AscentERP into our community.”
