Vertex tax solutions not only streamline compliance, but also connect tax data to other business functions, optimizing resources and enabling tax departments to manage these requirements and help with strategic growth.

“As global regulatory complexity and uncertainty increase, organizations continue to seek advanced tax software to automate processes and drive for success,” said David DeStefano, Vertex president and CEO. “We’re thrilled to honor these teams of tax, finance and IT professionals who have used technology to elevate tax as a strategic business partner.”

I was honored to help present the Innovation Awards at Vertex Exchange, our annual conference for corporate tax and technology. These awards hold deep meaning to us here at Vertex, as innovation in the pursuit of continuous improvement and helping our customers connect with what matters most are two of our enduring values.
