Export Software And How It Helped My Company

By   June 11, 2014

There are lots of businesses today who are still not taking advantage of special software packages that’s tailored to a specific industry. As I have seen multiple times, many small businesses use standard accounting software for their internal organization and think that’s all they need. But this can backfire.

shipping-software-2Some businesses today, and the export and import business is one of them, can benefit tremendously from industry specific software packages.

In my business, I have seen than export software helped us tremendously when it comes to several critical tasks where it concerns the internal organization. This is clear if one realizes that a lot in this business depends on this, possibly more than in any other business.

The export software and the export documentation software makes things easier that were rather challenging before. Where it took hours to manage our invoices and orders, now it takes only a few mouse clicks. With the software we see right away when a document is missing, this is extremely important if we ship overseas.

If customs finds that one single document is missing or filled out erroneously this will otherwise result in lengthy hold-ups, a disaster for any shipping company if goods are time-sensitive which they most of the time are. A client won’t do business with you again if you happen to deliver late, let alone if goods you deliver would be spoilt due to hold-ups.

There are many industries today where I think specific software can go long ways, beyond of what ordinary accounting software can do. I can only recommend to anyone to look into this type of software if not already done.
