Smooth processes without system breakage

Anyone who has to deal with customs processing knows that ERP systems from SAP offer little support for this. The legally required documents for international goods movements and the electronic transmission of all data are very time-consuming manually, for example, if you have to declare your export to customs manually because your IT systems cannot handle it.   

These processes can be automated: With the help of SAP-based add-ons, they can even be handled directly in the SAP system, because most of the necessary data can be generated directly from the system and enriched based on rules. With such an add-on, you save on manual data determination and transfer and also have insight into the current status of your processes at all times.
