Dealing with tax rates is by far one of the most tedious parts of running a store. Thanks to Hara Partners, Rand McNally can no longer punish its employees by making them research and implement tax policy manually By setting up a connection to their staging environment and installing the Magento Sales Tax module, created by CCH (Salestax.com), directly into the Rand McNally Magento store we have proudly eliminated that form of torture.
Rand McNally has been in the navigation business for over one hundred years. In the last decade they have established themselves as the premier navigation tool in the commercial industry. Their Magento based store at RandMcNally.com is a major destination for companies and consumers looking to improve their navigating capabilities. Since Rand McNally customers come from all corners of the United States a simple and automatic sales tax calculation software is a crucial tool for streamlining the Rand McNally business model. The Magento Sales Tax Module is the ideal tool. Utilizing an extensive and constantly updated system of sales taxes from all over the country, the Sales Tax Module is able to appropriately obtain and implement sales tax figures from every region automatically.
Automating the sales tax was no easy task. Testing various case scenarios was an essential part of our integration. Because tax rates vary wildly based on geographic location it was very important to make sure that business would go smoothly for Rand McNally with no interference from a particularly complicated tax. Finally we were able to implement all this complexity into the Magento configuration parameters so that Rand McNally can easily adjust to any situation without having to hire additional people to change the code.
