For export-oriented companies, smooth international trade processes are relevant to their competitiveness. This includes, among other things, customs clearance in the ATLAS procedure (Automated Tariff and Local Customs Clearance System). However, companies using SAP ERP or SAP S/4HANA often carry out the export declaration processes manually and time-consuming via the internet platform of the customs administration or turn to a standalone solution for this purpose, along with the related disadvantages. These include redundant data storage and effort required to set up and maintain interfaces.
With a special solution for ATLAS exports that integrates completely into their SAP software (SAP ERP or SAP S/4HANA) and enhances it without modification, companies that do not use SAP GTS can process export declarations and transit declarations (NCTS) automatically and thus efficiently, transparently and quickly. ATLAS exports are declared electronically to customs directly from the SAP system, which in turn also receives information from the customs authorities. This ensures transparency, because the current status of all export declarations can be tracked at any time.
The ATLAS Export solution enables export declarations in accordance with the electronic declaration procedures of various countries. In addition to export processing in Germany, the software currently supports exports to nine other countries, which can be integrated seamlessly if required. These include Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Great Britain, Poland and Sweden, as well as the Netherlands and Switzerland.
All customs documents created by the solution can also be automatically printed out and checked into archiving software certified by SAP for the ArchiveLink interface and connected to the SAP system. In the process of being archived, the customs documents can be linked to the associated SAP documents, which also simplifies audits by customs and tax authorities or internal audits.
WSW Software supports the implementation of this SAP-integrated solution for ATLAS export and the realization of IT-supported, integrated export processing with comprehensive consulting and services, from process analysis to setup and individual customization to preparation for go-live. The customer receives a solution that is perfectly tailored to their requirements, for which the customs and foreign trade experts at WSW Software can also provide post-commissioning support if desired.
