    Companies in International Trade, Our Robust Software Suite Helps Ensure Regulatory Compliance and Optimization of Operations Around the world, competition among companies to source and sell globally is intensifying. The opportunities may be vast, but trying to expand into new markets is a complex and high-stakes challenge. It’s an increasingly confusing and risky business environment that forces importers and exporters to deal with multiple trade programs, dynamic political landscapes, and a thicket of overlapping laws. Recent cases illustrate the disastrous fi nancial consequences and damage to corporate reputations that can result from non-compliance. Moreover, senior managers are now liable should their organizations’ global trade compliance programs fail. Despite these risks, however, some companies continue to use outdated, manual processes to maintain compliance.

  8. Customized e-Government Software that Streamlines and Expedites Export and Import

    Processes For governments seeking to improve their ability to fulfi ll their mandate, one of the most promising solutions is the development of e-government resources — also known as single window or one-stop shop solutions. Single window solutions, Business to Government (B2G) and Government to Government (G2G), simplify and streamline government transactions with external parties and also among agencies or departments within a government. Single window solutions are benefi cial to companies seeking to conduct international trade. Normally, such companies must manually submit identical (or nearly identical) information and paperwork to multiple government agencies. This process can require a needless duplication of effort on the company’s part, and can also increase the chances of errors, confl icting information and other issues that can delay the approval process. Steps for the Establishment of Single Window Solution Assessment ◆ Process analysis and harmonization ◆ National data standardization ◆ Cross border data standardization ◆ Document/messaging simplifi cation ◆ and standardization Customization of data ◆ CORE MODULES PUBLIC AGENCIES Ports & Customs Services Ministry Finance Trade Ministry Defence Ministry Agriculture Ministry Health Ministry Ministry of the Interior Transport Ministry Environment Ministry Communication Ministry Other Agencies PRIVATE AGENCIES Shipping Agencies Cargo Agencies Freight Forwarders Airlines Shipping Lines Lead Transporters Banks Warehouses Couriers Insurers Other Agencies Export Documentation Import Management Watch List (Denied Party) Screening License/Permit Screening Visitor and ID Management Commodity Classi cation License/Permit Applications License Management Anti-Money Laundering E-tendering P PR R G hi ar e rl hi a P P A Sh Ca Fre Le Ba Wa Co Ins Ot r h Le Air Sh Le SINGLE WINDOW SOLUTION Single Window Solution: Government to Government and Business to Government OCR’s Single Window International Trade Solution
