Improves Compliance with International Trade Regulations and Advisories
EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ, November 18, 2009 -- Management Dynamics, a leading provider of Global Trade Management solutions, today announced the release of Trade Wizards 10.0, a Web-based portal to trade content from 122 countries that facilitates the research of complex trade questions. The new release makes it easier for companies to classify products, calculate landed costs and perform document determination at the Harmonized Schedule (HS) level. In addition, a new user experience allows users to manage their searches and ultimately find information faster.
“Trade Wizards is an invaluable tool for our global trade team and we use it daily to quickly and accurately classify our products, determine applicable import or export controls, or to answer a question from the business on total landed cost,” said Glenda Welch, Director of Corporate Logistics and Transportation, Belkin International. “The latest version of Trade Wizards is much easier to use, allowing us to conduct our research more efficiently and to fully tap into Management Dynamics’ trade content library including the new HS-based document templates.”
Management Dynamics’ Trade Wizards 10.0 enables the user to make quick, interactive queries using a standard Web browser to calculate landed cost, screen for restricted trade parties, search for HS and Export Control Number (ECN) classifications, identify applicable regulatory controls, and determine trade documents. Management Dynamics maintains the trade content needed to answers these questions for 122 countries or approximately 99 percent of the world market. What used to require many hours to manually research trade rules and regulations can be achieved in minutes using Trade Wizards 10.0.
New key features available on Trade Wizards 10.0 include:
- New Classification Workflow - Perform complex searches that include the tariff number and either a legal or common term to quickly find relevant classifications. Also, searches may be defined with complete Boolean logic and search results are displayed in a tree format to simplify the navigation to a classification.
- Landed Cost Calculator Scenarios - Build landed cost scenarios with multiple origin countries to quickly identify the minimum landed costs with respect to product invoice, duty, VAT, excise, other governmental charges, transportation and insurance.
- Restricted Party Screening - Screen with an improved screening engine and access to Management Dynamics’ coverage of 94 restricted party lists offering the highest level of compliance with the lowest rate of false positives.
- Document Determination - Determine the documents required for exporting and importing based on country of export, country of import, and HS number. Results returned include hundreds of documents required for exports, imports, preferential agreements and product specific documents based on the HS number provided.
Trade Wizards 10.0 functionality is available in a highly intuitive user experience with online help that can be used immediately with no user training.
“As businesses continue to globalize at a fast pace, it is important for supply chain teams to have the resources they need to keep up with the ever-changing trade regulations and supporting content,” said Nathan Pieri, SVP Marketing & Product Management, Management Dynamics, Inc. “The latest Trade Wizards 10.0 release takes a big step forward on usability and ultimately makes it easier for users to accurately answer their toughest trade questions.”
