King of Prussia, PA
Vertex, Inc., a leading provider of tax technology and services, announced its partnership with digital commerce provider Insite Software and an integration with the company’s InsiteCommerce platform. Deepening their portfolio of integrations, Vertex will enable automated and real-time sales tax calculations for manufacturers and distributors using InsiteCommerce.
Insite Software, a leading provider of digital commerce solutions architected for manufacturers and wholesale distributors, needed an effective sales tax management system to ensure users had the correct content. By integrating Vertex solutions into its B2B e-commerce solution, the most up-to-date tax rates and rules are applied in real-time providing improved accuracy and reduced audit risk.
“As companies expand their sales reach through B2B e-commerce, conducting business across state lines and internationally can pose challenges around collecting and remitting sales tax. These requirements can be of particular concern for manufacturers and distributors that often deal with numerous product types across multiple jurisdictions in and outside of the U.S.,” said Paul Beirnes, managing director of partner development at Vertex. “By automating sales and use tax compliance, users of InsiteCommerce can ensure consistent and accurate tax processes so they can allocate more time to operations and growth strategies.”
The integration between Vertex and InsiteCommerce will support a comprehensive list of capabilities such as exemptions and discounts, with pinpoint tax area precision. With multiple deployment options, users can integrate with Vertex in cloud, hosted or on-premise environments.
“More than 70 percent of B2B buyers find purchasing from a website more convenient than buying from a sales representative. To increase satisfaction and make it easier for our customers to do business, we wanted to reduce the overwhelming burden of sales tax calculation,” said Steve Shaffer, CEO of Insite Software. “With Vertex as a partner, we can remove the stress of tax compliance, enabling our customers to increase efficiencies and drive more revenue with B2B commerce.”
