Avalara Celebrates "10 in 10" Milestone With Infor

10-Year Partnership Now Includes Integrations With 10 Infor Applications

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwired - Jul 7, 2016) - Avalara, Inc., a leading provider of cloud-based tax compliance automation for business, today announced three new connectors into Infor applications, bringing the total number of Avalara-Infor integrations to ten. These integrations coincide with the tenth anniversary of Avalara's partnership with Infor, a leading provider of beautiful business applications specialized by industry and built for the cloud. 

Avalara's new integrations with Infor are: Infor LN, Infor M3, and Infor Distribution SX.e. These join existing integrations with Infor Distribution A+, Infor Distribution FACTS, Infor Lawson/S3, Infor LX, Infor SyteLine, Infor VISUAL and Infor XA. Together, these ten integrations enable Infor customers to automatically calculate sales tax for every invoice line item, in real-time, saving countless hours of manual sales tax calculations (and the potential for errors), with the confidence they're leveraging up-to-date nexus, tax rates and rules.

"As a cloud first company, it is vital that Infor align with like-minded partners able to deliver superior SaaS compliance applications to best compliment and strengthen our enterprise solutions. That is why we are pleased to join Avalara in celebrating the '10 in 10' milestone, which demonstrates just how valuable this partnership is proving to be for the marketplace," said Neil Wilson, vice president, Global Alliances, Infor. "We look forward to growing our collaborative relationship by delivering the best products to our mutual customers for years to come."
