We are now seeing that the next advancement in Trade Compliance is digitalization. Rather than compliance being a cost, automation can result in a potential source of revenue. Initially, for any company, the key is knowing what automation is appropriate for the business and what processes can and should be automated. Once this has been identified the benefits include; handling more transactions with greater efficiency, reducing errors that can lead to penalties, enhancing visibility and control and more importantly, increased regulatory compliance.
There are certain areas in compliance which are currently more easily automated, for example, FTA, export licencing and classifications. Companies are now looking for individuals who have a process driven mentality and understand that with the development of compliance procedures, automation goes hand in hand
The sectors we work in:
- Professional Services
- Pharmaceutical and Chemicals
- Logistics and Transport
- Retail and FMCG
