Austin, TX (PRWEB) February 18, 2014
Volusion, Inc. today announced a best-in-class integration between the Mozu platform and Avalara Inc., a leading provider of sales tax and compliance automation services in the cloud. This integration is designed to further simplify and support the commerce needs of Mozu’s growing list of mid-market to enterprise-level clients by offering AvaTax™, Avalara’s software as a service (SaaS) solution, to automate their sales and use tax process.
"Partnering with an innovative company like Avalara speaks to our commitment of ensuring the Mozu platform delivers the most intuitive and powerful tools to our clients," said Clay Olivier, CEO, Volusion, Inc. "This integration is the first of several extensions that delivers on Mozu’s mission to deliver truly limitless commerce."
The AvaTax integration comes built-in to the Mozu platform, and removes the complexity and guesswork from sales tax compliance. The tool automatically calculates sales tax directly at the point of transaction, and uses advanced features to help minimize audit risks for retailers, ensuring end-to-end tax compliance.
In addition to tracking rates in more than 11,300 jurisdictions across the U.S., Avalara helps manage exemption certificates, file returns and remit payments across regions, all in the cloud. This native feature helps further extend the Mozu platform into a full-scale commerce solution by creating additional efficiencies between otherwise disconnected business software and platforms.
Pascal Van Dooren, EVP of Sales and Marketing at Avalara said, "Manually managing sales tax is difficult, expensive, and time consuming - and businesses can face stiff penalties if they don’t get it right. Avalara’s SaaS offering makes sales tax compliance simple and automatic for thousands of customers every day, and we look forward to doing the same for Mozu customers. In today’s electronic world it just doesn’t make sense to manually manage sales tax."
This integration is one of many important enhancements and extensions to be added to the Mozu platform. Since making its debut in January, Mozu has signed numerous deals with new clients and partners, with additional product and client developments in progress.
