Bainbrige Island, WA (PRWEB) May 14, 2015

Avalara, Inc., 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 a new partnership with Commerce Guys, the creators of and experts in Drupal Commerce, a premier open-source content management.

As a result of this partnership, AvaTax™, Avalara's cloud-based solution, is now directly integrated into Drupal Commerce, allowing its customers 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.

"We're always focused on helping our clients manage their businesses more efficiently," said Scott Dahlgren, Managing Director for Commerce Guys. "Our partnership with Avalara will enable Drupal Commerce users to easily manage and remain up-to-date on increasingly complicated tax regulations."

Avalara pioneered a service-based compliance platform for sales tax automation more than 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.

Jamee Nunnelee, strategic alliance manager at Avalara said, "We recognize the value Commerce Guys brings to its clients, and are pleased to augment their offerings with our easy and affordable compliance solution. In today's electronic world it just doesn't make sense to manually manage sales tax, and we're convinced all sales and use tax will be automated in the coming years."
