Avalara Partners With Aria Systems to Automate Sales Tax Management

Built-In Solution Enables Aria's Customers to Spend Less Time Managing Tax Compliance and More Time Driving Business Success

SEATTLE, WA and SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 28, 2016) -  Avalara, Inc., a leading provider of tax compliance automation for business, and Aria Systems, which helps enterprises grow subscription and usage-based revenue, today announced that Aria 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, Aria clients can now benefit from Avalara, which automatically calculates applicable taxes, fees, and surcharges for every billing line item, in real-time. 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 users more time to focus on driving their own business success.

"Businesses in every corner of the country use our service commerce platform, and that means we have to figure out how to charge, report, and file sales tax in thousands of localities that all have different tax laws -- it's a logistical nightmare," said Rosemary Biagioni, Vice President and Controller for Booker, an all-in-one local service commerce platform that leverages the joint Avalara-Aria solution. "Avalara's AvaTax solution takes a huge burden off of us. The tax rules and records are always up to date and Avalara does the filing, so we know we've paid the right taxes to the right agencies at the right time." 

"Aria is focused on increasing the speed and agility of our client's businesses at scale," said Tom Dibble, President & CEO at Aria. "Our integration with Avalara allows Aria clients to better manage their business by automating and easily managing increasingly intricate tax regulations."

Pascal Van Dooren, chief revenue officer at Avalara said, "This partnership allows Avalara to provide its comprehensive solutions to Aria customers in a fast, easy and cost effective way. In today's digital world it just doesn't make sense to manually manage sales tax."
