SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - May 6, 2016) - Avalara, Inc., a leading provider of tax compliance automation for business, today announced Kenandy, a cloud ERP for business innovation built on the Salesforce App Cloud, 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 result of this partnership, Kenandy customers can now benefit from Avalara, which automatically calculates sales tax for every invoice line item, in the real-time "magic moment" of ecommerce. Avalara helps reduce the tedious work and complexity of calculating taxes for millions of products and services across the U.S., Canada, Europe, and dozens of other international jurisdictions, giving customers more time to focus on driving their own business success. In addition, Kenandy users can add Avalara's tax return preparation, filing, and remittance services.

"We are dedicated to helping midsized manufacturers focus on growing their business rather than managing their software," said Rod Butters, CTO and president of products and services for Kenandy. "Our partnership with Avalara will allow Kenandy customers to simplify reporting and administrative compliance in the face of having to manage increasingly complicated tax regulations."

As a Gold sponsor of Avalara's national tax compliance conference, CRUSH 2016 in New Orleans on May 10-11, Kenandy will showcase how their cloud ERP solution benefits finance and accounting teams with real-time visibility into business operations at booth 2. Kenandy's cloud ERP built on Salesforce is differentiated in the market as it allows customers to map to their existing business processes.

Pascal Van Dooren, Chief Revenue Officer at Avalara, said, "This partnership allows Avalara to provide its comprehensive solutions to Kenandy customers in a fast, easy and cost effective way. In today's electronic world, commerce happens in real-time so businesses need to generate accurate invoices (including sales tax) in real-time. We're pleased to welcome Kenandy into our community."
