Automatically Using
SAP GTS

Export control processes can bog exporters down with endless amounts of documentation. Automating these processes improves efficiencies, saving companies both time and money. SAP’s Global Trade Services (GTS) helps automate export controls.
Key Concept
The Compliance Management component of the SAP Global Trade Services (GTS) system allows global firms to move away from the costly practice of maintaining export control processes manually. It provides an automated system that accommodates the data and trade processes related to exports and can double as a centralized repository for export information.
Export control is a critical aspect of international trade. Countries impose controls for various reasons ranging from national security to foreign policy requirements to international treaty obligations as well as for terrorism concerns and human rights-related issues. In addition to all the bad press a company may receive, falling out of compliance can result in increased government scrutiny, loss of export privileges, or civil or criminal penalties.
