SAINT LOUIS (Oct. 18, 2012) Perficient, Inc.

Vertex Exchange, which will be held Oct. 21 – 24 in Orlando, Fla., is the premier conference for tax professionals looking to learn from and network with Vertex subject matter experts and other information technology professionals.

“The last few years have brought a lot of change for tax professionals. Tax legislation, rate hikes and increased audit activity have created a more challenging compliance environment,” said Kenneth Gaines, director, Tax Technology Practice for Perficient. “Companies that have had simple tax considerations in the past recognize the need to take a stronger look at how they maintain better tax compliance going forward. They’re looking for the right technology solutions to help address these growing challenges and maintain regulatory compliance.”

During Vertex Exchange, Perficient experts will be available to discuss Oracle solutions and services that address various tax technology needs. Perficient has been providing automated tax solutions for Vertex and Oracle clients for the past decade.

“Our strong experience with Oracle EBS affords us an advantage in designing the custom Tax Links to work with Oracle EBS and Vertex O Series,” continued Gaines. “Perficient’s tax link integration tool provides functionality unmatched by other link providers as organizations experience a minimal amount of ongoing maintenance, and audit exposure, fines and penalties are greatly reduced. We’re pleased to have the opportunity to demonstrate our Tax Links at Vertex Exchange 2012.”
