TROY, Mich., Jan. 31, 2013 – Plex Systems Inc., provider of Plex Online, cloud ERP for manufacturers, today announced the availability of an automated sales and use tax compliance solution through its strategic partnership with Avalara, the market-leading provider of sales tax and compliance automation services in the cloud.
Managing the complexity of multiple use and sales taxes is now a less time-consuming and laborious task with the integration of Avalara’s tax solution. Plex Online users who opt for this functionality will no longer be required to research and verify taxes that are required by states, counties, cities, municipalities and other governmental entities.
Plex Online and Avalara have combined to provide the fastest, easiest, most accurate and affordable way to manage sales tax compliance for manufacturers.
“Plex Online and Avalara provide a tax management solution that simplifies and automates the computation of applicable taxes with minimal effort by our staff,” said Debbie Horner, controller at Inovo. “We were manually computing taxes prior to the implementation of the Avalara and Plex Online solution. It has made order fulfillment much easier and improved our ability to respond to tax audits as well.”
Avalara Founder and CEO Scott McFarlane said, “Automating the collection of sales tax for Plex Online users is a great example of how we help improve the manufacturing process. Our fast, easy solution complements the benefits Plex Online offers, helping them provide manufacturers with an effective ERP solution.”
“This is yet another strategic partnership that helps our community of users operate more efficiently,” stated Plex Systems Vice President of Strategy Jim Shepherd. “We are continuously improving Plex Online and the enhancements in automating sales tax information are another example of how we ensure that manufacturers achieve unparalleled operational efficiency.”
