Converted a number of End Point Dev clients from their existing password management for user and administrative accounts over to bcrypt.
Tax Jar integration for Interchange: In response to the Wayfair court decision, many ecommerce implementations face compliance challenges. To provide an option for 3rd-party tax services, constructed a connector to Tax Jar that allows a seamless interface to Interchange’s existing sales tax algorithms.
