Good news developers! Avalara have announced a new low-code studio to help you easily build integrations between Avalara’s compliance platform and business applications, and two new APIs for sales tax returns and e-invoicing.
Avalara is pursuing a headless compliance approach that decouples the front-end presentation layer of a compliance experience from the back-end compliance functionality. With new and future APIs for compliance, software developers can more quickly and easily build complete compliance workflows into business applications.
Avalara introduces low-code tools
To improve the process of creating and maintaining integrations for partners, Avalara Integration Studio — a low-code platform for integration development — provides simple, customized workflows that developers can follow to build specific functions. Integration Studio both simplifies the complexity around understanding tax context and Avalara APIs, and allows nontechnical teams to more easily assist in the development of integrations.
Developers are critical partners to Avalara. We want to make it as easy as possible for developers to build integrations, compliance experiences, and new compliance applications using the innovation and expertise from Avalara, The capabilities announced today are the next step in our journey of learning from, working with, and supporting the developer community.– Sanjay Parthasarathy, chief product officer, Avalara
Avalara’s new APIs
- Avalara’s e-Invoicing API will allow partners to offer their customers the ability to trigger and manage e-invoicing workflows from within their application.
- Avalara’s Returns API will allow partners to embed tax return workflows for their customers natively within their application.
