IT Intelligence Bulletin (HG Insights) — Vertex is the first sales tax software provider included as a Core Bundled Extension (CBE) with the latest release of the flagship Magento Commerce platform.

As a Premier Magento Technology Partner, Vertex has delivered tax solutions for Magento Commerce and Magento Open Source users since 2015. This new integration provides Magento merchants with direct access to an automated sales and use tax solution, eliminating manual compliance processes across multiple storefronts and improving the customer e-commerce experience.

“Accurate tax calculation should be a seamless aspect of online shopping that the consumer shouldn’t have to think about, despite many potential tax complexities,” said Bradd Wildstein, director of sales at Vertex. “The goal of the integration is to make automated tax calculation a reality for online retailers so they can focus on sales and business goals, rather than the latest tax rates and rules.”
