Avalara, Inc., provider of cloud-based software that delivers compliance solutions related to sales tax and other transactional taxes, has announced Bigcommerce, an ecommerce platform for fast-growing brands, 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 platform, Bigcommerce's goal is to provide customers with a comprehensive suite of best-in-class applications that simplify and automate processes while making the technology as invisible as possible," said Tim Schulz, Chief Product Officer at Bigcommerce. "By integrating Avalara AvaTax our customers are able to manage and accurately apply hundreds of thousands of tax variables in real time, all with the click of a button."
Bigcommerce customers now have access to the full features of Avalara AvaTax and Avalara Returns, Avalara's cloud-based tax calculation and sales tax filing solutions, to automatically calculate the final sales tax amount on every invoice and file sales and use tax returns.
Pascal Van Dooren, Chief Revenue Officer at Avalara said, "This partnership gives Bigcommerce merchants even richer support and solution capabilities for automating sales tax compliance 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 Bigcommerce into our community of certified solution partners."
Avalara pioneered a web-based compliance platform for sales tax automation a decade ago and now provides an end-to-end suite of transactional tax compliance services for businesses of all sizes. Today its SaaS solution integrates into numerous ERP systems, accounting packages, ecommerce shopping carts, Point of Sale systems, and mobile payment platforms.
