Avalara - A great do it all Tax solution
Overall Satisfaction with Avalara
- Really good interface for users to look at.
- The reporting aspect is one of the best I have ever seen from a financial software.
- Security access and changes is simple and straightforward.
- User workflow for processes is not straightforward.
- integration with other systems could be improved.
- leaving notes within the tool for other uses to pick up would be a nice add on other systems have.
- We were able to reduce headcount.
- First year implementation expense is obviously higher.
- The reporting analysis allows us to run scenarios on what our tax rate should be.
We don't currently use any of these capabilities at this point in time. There is some discussion to get these implemented but we like our offline excels. The biggest hurdle is the workflow aspect as Avalar does not handle workflow change very well. If we can get passed this hurdle we would like use all of these capabilities.
