Since it was founded in 2007, Swizznet has relied on the comprehensive functionality of the interworks.cloud platform. The company founders were both business owners and a CPA firm so they had the inside scoop on architecting Swizznet systems with a deep understanding of how businesses need to operate. With this clear template in mind, it then sought out “best-in-class” technology that could deliver against demanding requirements. It chose the interworks. cloud platform because it offered a significant edge compared with competitor solutions. It was essential that its solution was reliable and could be seamlessly integrated with third-party systems and payment gateways. By leveraging interworks.cloud’s broad scope for integration, Swizznet has been able to realize the goal of largely automating its business. For example, it rapidly provisions QuickBooks licenses through an integration with Atria; deploys the interworks.cloud’s prebuilt integration with Authorize.net to automatically clear end-customer invoices; and is fully integrated with Avalara, which uses a database of US tax rates and rules to automatically calculate amounts due and ensure compliance.
The automation edge provided by the interworks.cloud platform has underpinned Swizznet’s year-over-year, double digit, growth from the start. Over 60% of new-customer provisioning is now fully automated and the interworks.cloud platform has delivered further savings through its integration with the company’s invoicing and accounts receivable. Together with the platform’s flexibility and scalability, these have freed Swizznet to focus on the decisions that really matter for its rapidly expanding business.
The combined solution of the interworks.cloud marketplace, provisioning engine, and billing platform, has enabled Swizznet to streamline operations, strengthen its go-to-market presence, and focus on growth.”
