Open Systems' TRAVERSE Certified by Avalara

The TRAVERSE version 10.5 connector, part of the business accounting and ERP platform from Open Systems Inc., has been certified by Avalara, which establishes a partnership through which Open Systems' customers can now use Avalara’s AvaTax capabilities from within the TRAVERSE v 10.5 existing workflow to automatically calculate the final sales tax amount on every invoice. This eliminates the tedious work and complexity of calculating taxes across multiple jurisdictions and helps businesses focus on their core offering.
