“There is an increasing demand from our clients to make their multi-channel content and commerce sites integrate to order management, ERP and tax solutions,” said Dilip Keshu, CEO, Group FMG. “Our partnership with Avalara addresses the sophistication required on tax functionality. The partnership will enable our ecommerce clients to easily manage and remain up-to-date on increasingly complicated tax processing and regulations.”

Jay Deubler, vice president of sales at Avalara, said, “We recognize the value Group FMG brings to its clients, and are pleased to augment their offerings with our easy and affordable compliance solution.
