Bainbridge Island, WA (PRWEB) June 02, 2014
Avalara, Inc., (http://www.Avalara.com), a leading provider of cloud-based software that delivers a broad array of compliance solutions related to sales tax and other transactional taxes, today announced it has joined the Commerce Guys Marketplace, a premier site gathering the best resources for Drupal Commerce, making them easier for users to find and engage.
As a result, users of the Drupal Commerce eCommerce platform are now able to access AvaTax™, Avalara’s cloud-based solution, to automatically calculate sales taxes owed on every invoice. This eliminates the tedious work and complexity of calculating taxes across multiple jurisdictions and helps businesses focus on their core offering.
“Avalara’s presence in the Commerce Marketplace demonstrates our commitment to the open source community,” said Pascal Van Dooren, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Avalara. “We look forward to delivering our industry-leading sales and VAT compliance solutions to users of the Drupal Commerce eCommerce platform, giving merchants timely access to up-to-date sales and use tax tools and educational resources and enabling them to better serve their customers.”
Avalara pioneered a service-based compliance platform for sales tax automation a decade ago and today works within a company’s own financial, billing, eCommerce, or point of sale system to provide an end-to-end suite of transactional tax compliance services for businesses of all sizes.
“Correctly and efficiently automating sales and use tax is an attractive proposition for any merchant,” said Scott Dahlgren, managing director for North America at Commerce Guys. “Having Avalara on Marketplace illustrates their commitment to Drupal Commerce and the open source community, and provides a valuable option for our customers.”
