Export Document Processing Made Easier with SAP Business One

Following the process laid down by the GOI and complying with all documentation is an inherent business function for any export house.
As per the established process, there are a bunch of documents required with every export consignment like common export documents, transportation documents, export compliance documents, certificates of origin, other certificates for shipments of specific goods, other export-related documents, and temporary shipment documents. Not just this, every company that exports goods also has to plan the shipment with respect to a container whether it is FCL or LCL etc.
Many export houses in India in the SME sector rely on niche software applications that cater to the export documentation alone. Whereas such applications are aligned to the basic documentation needs, they are rarely integrated with actual operational data and are susceptible to manual error. In such scenario companies rely on a large team that is responsible for creation, verification, making corrections, reverification etc. There is a significant manual effort needed to coordinate with various departments in the company that provide critical inputs to such documentation.
