In addition to Avectra's premier-level, Canada based data hosting operations, our integration with Moneris and VAT/GST/HST computations deliver the essential capabilities Canadian associations need to manage their organizations and serve their members.
Mclean, VA (Vocus) November 29, 2010
Avectra, the industry’s association management software innovator, now offers new services for the company’s Canada-based customers. Introduced in the most recent release of netFORUM Team and netFORUM Pro, Canadian customers can now perform computations for value added tax (VAT), goods and services tax (GST) and/or harmonized sales tax (HST) as well as process credit card transactions through Moneris Solutions, the leading payment processor in Canada.
In addition to these product developments, Avectra also operates data hosting services in a “Class A” data center in Toronto that helps Canadian associations comply with PIPEDA laws.
“We have been received enthusiastically by our Canadian customers and prospects looking for a top-of-the-line membership management system that not only adheres to the unique requirements of the Canadian market, but also successfully manages their association and members with a rich combination of integrated membership, e-Marketing, e-Commerce and social community features,” said Patrick Dorsey, vice president of marketing for Avectra. “In addition to Avectra’s premier-level, Canada based data hosting operations, our integration with Moneris and VAT/GST/HST computations deliver the essential capabilities Canadian associations need to manage their organizations and serve their members.”
Avectra customers with Moneris accounts can now set up their netFORUM association management software to process credit card transactions directly within the system. This integration enables associations to offer one-stop e-Commerce for dues payment as well as the ability to sell products online through the association website. In addition to Moneris, netFORUM Team and Pro also integrates with PayPal and Authorize.net for payment processing.
With the recent software update to netFORUM, Canadian associations can also specify and track sales tax for memberships, certifications, donations, merchandise and events. netFORUM’s tax tracking takes into consideration the Harmonized Sales Tax rules that enable applicable taxes based on the member’s province.
“Our investment in state-of-the-art data facilities and functionality specifically for this market means Avectra provides more than just a PIPEDA compliant, reliable service for our Canadian member-based customers. It means there is a more efficient and successful way for Canadian associations to manage their business and their members,” said Dorsey.
Avectra’s hosting facility in Toronto, Ontario, is operated by leading communications provider Primus Business Services. In addition to providing the most reliable and redundant network available, the data center provides world-class access and environmental controls for Canada-based associations using Avectra’s netFORUM association management software.
