Avalara Sales & Use Tax Automation for eCommmerce

And that's not counting the cost of audits or penalties if your sales taxes are in error.

Our partnership with Avalara can help you automate your Joomla eCommerce sales tax calculations, reducing the risk of audit and ensuring timely, accurate sales tax calculation during checkout, whatever you sell, across the globe. Our Avalara-certified integration for HikaShop supports over 150 counties.

LastPass Enterprise....

LastPass Enterprise - Password Security ManagerAre you still storing passwords in your browser? Or reusing the same memorable password on multiple websites?

Most people do, even though they know it's a really bad idea. But how in the world can you possibly be expected to remember unique, nonsensical, long, secure passwords that are different for every single website you use?

You can't, and that's why LastPass exists. LastPass is the best way to manage all your passwords, saving them in a secure password manager vault.

LastPass is one of the security tools we personally use everyday to serve our clients. Each of our employees gets a unique, strong password to every client site, which is stored privately in LastPass Enterprise. We don't share login accounts and we don't reuse passwords across client sites, ever.
