Software 21 Partners with Avalara to
Solve complex Sales Tax challenges
for customers, with innovative web solution - AvaTaxConnect

Kirkland, WA - Software 21, a leading provider of Enterprise
Software Solutions to manufacturing companies of high technology products, announced an agreement to integrate and service the Avalara family of web based Sales and Use Tax tools, developed exclusively by Avalara.

All small to mid sized businesses face the challenge of navigating the calculation and reporting of sales and use tax liabilities, if doing business today in the US or Canada. In the near future, many states intend to man- date on line calculation and reporting of all tax liabilites due including e-commerce and other sources of on-line revenues to the states. Avalara offers a clear solution to the e-filing and e-payment trend in the future through it's innovative AvaTax family of on line services. Being web based, AvaTax maintains the most accurate and up to date tax and filing regulations available for more than 12,500 unique taxing jurisdictions across the country. AvaTax is able to validate rates and calculations of taxes based on zip code, address for the transaction and regulations specifying the type of sale requiring taxes due. The web service is fully integrated and now available through Software 21's FlexGen4 - AE CRM business applications.

With this partnership, Software 21 continues a successful move towards integrating new applications and tools within FlexGen4 - AE, designed to offer our customers value and "Best of Industry Technology" for productivity enhancement, said Rob Foulkes, CEO of Software 21.
