Retailers are facing increasing challenges to comply with complex state and local tax regulations for managing the taxability of multi-channel transactions, a high-volume of transactions, jurisdictional special tax rates and rules, and increasing growth and market expansion through mergers and acquisitions. Through Vertex O Series, these Retailers are finding the solution they need which delivers a multi-channel, end-to-end comprehensive and centralized indirect tax solution.
Vertex recognized early on that automating the tax at the Retail POS level would involve integrating with dozens of POS systems and versions. Therefore, the retail solution was designed from the ground-up to deliver a superset of tax data that has easily integrated with the existing legacy or new tax data models of merchandising and POS systems.
In addition, certain POS providers have integrated their POS applications to the Vertex Retail In-Store Tax Engine. Vertex's Retail Partner program is currently engaged with the top POS providers to create an even more seamless and functionally rich solution for indirect tax as they evolve their ability to help our clients accomplish the highest degree of accuracy for all nuances of the tax law.
Furthermore, to ensure the success of all retail clients, Vertex offers Vertex Consulting Services to provide guidance on tax system implementation, tax process optimization, and tax data management services.
