Here at Advansys, we understand just how fine the lines are in the competitive eCommerce world. Any slight advantage that you can gain, could well be the difference in your business being a success, or not. When it comes to attracting (and keeping) a wide customer base online, one major factor is the functionality of the website.

As a great example of this, a recent project that we've undertaken is assisting renowned audio equipment manufacturers, Focusrite, in improving their website with Avalara integration. Being a one-stop shop in the management of sales tax and filing, Avalara is a Cloud-based application that automatically calculates and updates tax rates, making the sales process (for both the business and the customers that use the website) much easier.

In this blog, we're going to outline the project we undertook for Focusrite and explain why Avalara would work for you too.

Focusrite's Avalara Integration

Focusrite are a market leader in the design and sales of audio hardware and software, with their products being supplied to amateur and professional audio engineers, producers and musicians all over the globe. Being a well-known brand with such a wide customer base, Focusrite were seeking an integration system that would be able to perform a range of tax calculations that would ultimately allow them to better streamline the purchasing process for customers. In addition, they were also seeking a system that would help them to be more efficient with their filing.

As we already had an existing relationship with the company (having previously worked with them to produce their responsive website) they understood the process. As such, our team were able to swiftly implement the Avalara Integration within their website's software. Being adept at introducing all manner of applications into a wide range of software management systems, we were able to introduce Avalara to Focusrite's existing system and explain how each aspect works in order to help them to achieve their aims.

Now, Focusrite are able to present their products to their worldwide customer base, displaying the correct total price, no matter the tax rate of their locality. Not just that, but being able to accurately and automatically calculate and file their tax and VAT returns, the company can now concentrate on other aspects of their business. The end product, of course, is the deliverance of a better service to their customers. This is something that helps to make their experience of purchasing from the company much more enjoyable and will play into many returning to them to complete more purchases in the future.
