Maximize your competitive advantage through free trade agreements.
Best-In-Class Free Trade Agreement (FTA) Software
UTILIZED BY INDUSTRY LEADERS FOR AUTOMATED FTA ORIGIN DETERMINATION & COMPLIANCE
In today’s fiercely competitive global market, manufacturers and importers alike are challenged to find innovative ways to increase market share. This includes understanding the various trade-related programs that can reduce risk, costs and improve import cycle-time.
ENTER FREE TRADE AGREEMENTS
Free Trade Agreements reduce or eliminate import tariffs on selected goods traded between signatory countries. An FTA eligible good must meet certain conditions related to its production process, and/or its percentage of locally sourced content.
For manufacturers, this is a complex process which begins by pulling production bills of material (BOMs) and performing the respective content calculation. That’s just the beginning. If their goods qualify, manufacturers must prepare and disseminate potentially thousands of FTA Certificates of Origin – a process which may need to be repeated multiple times during the calendar year.
For importers, it means identifying source suppliers in countries which have a reciprocal FTA program, then validating whether their goods actually qualify. Managing multiple agreements for hundreds — or even thousands — of products is a time- and labor-intensive process. QAD Precision Free Trade Agreement is an automated customs compliance solution that simplifies this process.
With QAD Precision's free trade agreement management solution you can solicit for inbound Certificates of Origin from suppliers, easily assess your entire product line under FTA Rules of Origin, obtain a full detailed audit trail of the results, and generate outbound Certificates of Origin to customers. Our software seamlessly integrates into your existing ERP and business systems for consistent, refined calculations and centralized data.
The QAD Precision Free Trade Agreement solution manages all trade agreements recognized by the World Trade Organization (WTO) in every region of the world and covers Rules of Origin across all Harmonized Tariff Headings (HTS).
