Consulting Customs & Foreign Trade

Create automated and compliant processes!

As an exporting company, the smooth handling of international trade processes is relevant to your competitiveness. We are happy to support you in making your processes transparent, efficient and automated!

Two employees from the customs and foreign trade department are discussing.

Your path to efficient processes directly in SAP

Whether for preference determination, confirmation of arrival, maintenance of customs tariff numbers or electronic procedures for import and export (ATLAS, AES, NCTS): the processes in the course of cross-border exchange of goods with customers and partners are usually complex - especially since the legal requirements of more than one country must always be strictly adhered to!

You therefore need integrated and automated processes with high efficiency, quality, transparency and legal compliance. However, in many places there is a need to catch up on this point, even in the SAP environment. Many companies therefore handle the demanding tasks of customs and foreign trade outside their ERP system - for example, with complex Excel spreadsheets.

We at WSW Software support the optimization of your foreign trade from A to Z with all our experience and our profound consulting, solution and process expertise. Our experts establish an end-to-end IT-supported, automated, legally compliant customs and foreign trade processing in your company under SAP ERP, S/4HANA or Global Trade Services (GTS) - tailor-made and cost-optimized.

When you benefit from our advice:

Your manual processes are too time-consuming.

You want to make sure that your processes can also map new requirements quickly and transparently.

Too many errors occur due to system breaks or manual entries.

Your customs and foreign trade processes are not fully mapped in SAP.

Your processes must be customs and legally compliant at all times, i.e. "compliant": you must ensure that all supporting documents and evidence are correct, thus avoiding false declarations to the authorities.

Performance overview

We offer you consulting, software and service from a single source - individually adapted to your initial situation.

Consulting for SAP GTS
SAP Global Trade Services is an application that comprehensively covers national and international export and import requirements and automates global trade processes. First, our consultants use a detailed analysis of your customs and foreign trade processes to determine whether SAP GTS is the right foreign trade solution for your company. If this is the case, our experts support the implementation with all their know-how and, if required, carry out extensions, for example the rollout to additional locations, as well as optimizations even after the go-live.
Consulting SAP ECC and S/4HANA
The SAP standard offers different scopes of functionality depending on whether you use S/4HANA for International Trade or SAP Foreign Trade. We conduct workshops and fit-gap analyses with you to ensure that you are making the best possible use of your existing solutions. We provide you with professional and technical advice based on our best-practice approach to ensure that you optimize your business processes with SAP in the best possible way, and create the conditions for automated processing. Our experts are happy to provide user training and support you during short-term staff shortages and seasonal peaks.
Extensions for your SAP systems
Where your SAP systems no longer provide the support you need for your complex foreign trade processes, we can extend your standard with SAP-based add-ons. Our AVENIO solutions are seamlessly integrated with SAP and extend the functionalities even for the special requirements of international goods movements.
