Launchpad joins forces with Avalara to transform workflow efficiency and accounting

VANCOUVER, B.C., Aug. 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Launchpad Technologies Inc. ("Launchpad"), a trailblazing provider of enterprise integration software and post-configuration support services, is proud to announce that it has partnered with Avalara Inc., a Seattle-based global leader in cloud-based tax compliance automation. 

By seamlessly integrating  Avalara’s tax compliance solutions with Launchpad’s PaasportTM iPaaS platform, the partnership enables new and existing customers of either company to increase workflow efficiency while automating and digitally transforming their accounting functions. 

“We are delighted to partner with Avalara to make automation easier and more rewarding for its customers around the world,” said Launchpad Founder and Principal Bruce Qi. “Increasing efficiency and productivity, while also taking care of workflow automation and apps, gives them a significant competitive advantage, especially with the PaasportTM iPaaS platform being truly scalable and managed 24/7.”

PaasportTM's Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) architecture is already purpose-built to efficiently integrate Avalara, and works seamlessly with all major software-as-a-service (SaaS) apps, including:

  • Sales & Marketing: Shopify, Salesforce, Amazon, Ebay, Etsy
  • Finance: QuickBooks Online, Sage Intacct, Oracle NetSuite, Xero

“Both of our companies deliver a technological edge to our clients with solutions that drive business outcomes and make organizations more efficient,” said Jermaine McKinnon, Sr. Manager, Strategic Alliances at Avalara. “This partnership allows Avalara to help Launchpad clients digitally transform their accounting departments in order to spend less time on non-revenue generating activities, and more time on processes that will impact their bottom lines.” 

Before Launchpad’s founding, only enterprise-level and Fortune 500 companies could afford the costly platforms and services needed to integrate and automate siloed data and apps. Now, organizations of all sizes around the world can seamlessly connect and manage enterprise automation and data integration by leveraging both the PaasportTM platform and post-configuration services that go above and beyond by providing long-tail support as part of clients’ subscriptions.
