Vertex O Series Edge

Calculate tax at the point of transaction using edge computing.

Vertex O Series Edge

Edge deployment delivers ultimate control

Vertex O Series Edge lets you calculate tax at the point of transaction but manage it centrally – for the highest availability, improved control over performance, and a streamlined tax technology landscape. Don’t let tax create friction in your business – move it to the edge.

Explore Features, Benefits & Highlights

An edge deployment ensures the highest availability.

Deploying the tax engine using edge technology eliminates network connectivity and bandwidth issues in local store settings. Edge also enables fast automated scalability while minimising latency to address increased demand on e-commerce websites, especially during peak traffic.

Gain consistent, predicable performance.

Eliminate most (if not all) network latency in processing a transaction. Edge containers provide consistent, reliable performance since they calculate without an internet connection.

Calculate tax locally, but centralise the control.

With an edge deployment, tax is calculated locally with minimal friction. Data and telemetry are streamed to a main hub intelligently to centralise reporting, compliance, and maintenance. You’ll eliminate the cumbersome and resource-heavy maintenance of a wide network of local endpoints.

Deployment options deliver greater efficiency.

Customise individual containers for each specific line of business, region, or any other way you organise your business. Deploy only the tax content needed for that location.

Protect Personal Identifiable Information (PII)

Transactions are processed and tax is calculated behind the company firewall which minimises traffic through the firewall. PII never needs to leaves the local network.

Centralised and Local

Hub-and-spoke model lets you manage configuration, maintenance, and reporting centrally, but manage tax calculation locally for frictionless commerce.

What is a Container

What is a Container?

Vertex enables the user to create tax system “container images” that can be deployed locally anywhere.

  • A container image is a pre-packaged unit containing all the dependencies required to run the software (software, server, tax configuration, etc.). Each container image can be customised to a specific location’s needs (i.e., only the tax content required for that location).
  • Containers are used to set up many similar multi-component systems in different locations.

Edge deployment is ideal for:

  • Retailers with in-store operations who require high availability checkout solutions.
  • e-Commerce operations who require a highly scalable, low latency tax solution. 
  • Companies who want to deliver a frictionless customer checkout experience.
  • Companies who want a backup system to ensure uptime for their cloud or on-premise tax engine.
  • IT departments already using edge technology, and those looking  for a more creative implementation approach.
  • Companies with security concerns sending data across their firewall.
