Retail Sales Tax
ALDI needed a retail sales tax system that could support their expanding market and product line. Driven by growth and improved technology at the point of sale, the system needed to offer accurate real-time tax calculation for a broadening product offering as well as new jurisdictions.
Growth in new jurisdictions, new retail sales taxes, and a product line that included many new products left ALDI with a need for a retail sales tax solution that could support existing point of sales equipment, while the transition to a new high performing point of sale system was deployed. Ever changing retail sales tax laws required a system that could accurately meet the existing challenges while being robust enough to handle expansion into new markets and products.
Systems Guild established a system to maintain existing retail sales tax solution so that all the capabilities remained uninterrupted while a new system was implemented with enhanced functionality. There were several key elements involved in building a new retail sales tax system. One of the first issues was to find a tax data vendor that could handle the increasingly complex state and local regulations for managing taxes on multi-channel transactions. Providing technical expertise in both the operation of existing systems as well as current state technology, Systems Guild was a technical partner to ALDI and was integral in the process of selecting of Vertex, Inc. as the new tax data and software supplier. Systems Guild worked closely with the Vertex Consulting technical team to on ALDI’s behalf to specify, create, qualify and maintain a system to provide data from the Vertex product in the format needed by legacy systems. Systems Guild advised in the setup and configuration of the Vertex product to allow a seamless transition to the new point of sales system. With Vertex in place and mindful of regulatory requirements identified by Price Waterhouse, Systems Guild built a comprehensive retail sales tax software system to interface, manage, and update existing legacy point of sales systems while allowing the seamless in place upgrade to the new point of sales system. The product was delivered in a mature state, including operation, installation, and troubleshooting guides which allow ALDI's staff to install and implement the system with minimal oversight from Systems Guild. The transition from the existing system to the new system occurred seamlessly in place with no changes or interruptions to upstream or downstream systems.
Systems Guild maintained ALDI's current tax system and engineered and implemented a turn-key retail tax solution implementing client specified best of breed third party systems and custom development that allowed ALDI to use their staff to install and execute the product. The solution was delivered on time and within budget.
