How IT and tax teams can improve their business’s e-commerce experience

The recent rise in e-commerce has significant tax and IT implications for businesses

As e-commerce activity skyrockets around the world, more companies are opting to sell their products online, opening a new channel to meet consumer demands. But ensuring a frictionless shopping experience is easier said than done. Behind the scenes, many corporate tax and IT teams are now considering new technologies to support this growing consumer purchasing behavior.

Enter edge computing, a hybrid deployment option that combines both cloud and on-premises benefits. Using edge computing, companies can get faster tax calculations while still reaping the benefits of a cloud-based tax engine that is always up-to-date with the latest rates and rules. Edge computing allows data to be processed closer to its source and sends only the relevant information back through the network, reducing latency. E-commerce is one of the best applications for edge computing, due to the recent acceleration in e-commerce and demand for high-performing tax services.
