Epicor BisTrack Expands SaaS Footprint with Avalara Sales Tax Automation Certification

North American Version of LBM Software Now Offers Users Access to Cloud-Based Sales Tax Calculation Functionality

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwired - November 30, 2016) - Epicor Software Corporation, a global provider of industry-specific enterprise software to promote business growth, announced today that its North American version of Epicor BisTrack, a software solution designed for dealers and distributors of lumber and building materials (LBM), and construction supplies, is now a certified solution provider of Avalara, Inc.

Through a strategic relationship with Avalara, a leading provider of tax compliance automation for business, the North American version of BisTrack software is now integrated with Avalara's software as a service (SaaS) offering for sales tax management. Epicor BisTrack customers now have access to expanded functionality, including access to AvaTax™, Avalara's cloud-based solution which automatically calculates the final sales tax amount on every invoice -- eliminating tax calculation complexities and helping businesses place more attention on their customers and other essential operations.

"Avalara can now provide its comprehensive solutions to Epicor BisTrack customers in a fast, easy and cost effective way," said Pascal Van Dooren, chief revenue officer, Avalara. "In today's electronic world it just doesn't make sense to manually manage sales tax. We're pleased to welcome Epicor into our community."

"We are a company focused on meeting the needs of our clients by simplifying complexities and helping them manage their businesses more efficiently," said Jason Parchomchuk, manager, BisTrack product management, Epicor Software. "Our integration with Avalara will allow Epicor BisTrack software users in North America to easily manage and remain up-to-date on increasingly complicated tax regulations."

The newest version of Epicor BisTrack, announced earlier this year, is designed to give LBM dealers and distributors the advanced features and functionality needed to manage and profitably grow their businesses. The software, with the addition of AvaTax SaaS functionality, should help dealers achieve this growth by simplifying and streamlining their operations.
