Ease of Use

See how Vertex SMB helped Universal Photonics easily automate their sales and use tax process through an intuitive interface.

Universal Photonics’ Challenge

Universal Photonics previously had a manual sales and use tax process including downloading sales tax reports from an internal system, performing online searches and phoning jurisdictions for compliance and reporting rules, and filing paper returns. While Universal Photonics ships and sells to all US states and across the globe, when their responsibility to collect sales tax expanded from six to thirteen states, they needed an automated solution that would reduce the time, effort, and risk of managing sales tax compliance.

In Their Own Words

Vertex makes the whole process really simple. All we do is upload data and check our tax liability against the reports and then download our returns. It’s very easy to use. I love that I don’t have to calculate sales tax or deal with all the notices that we used to get.
