Transforming Trade Documentation

In order to ensure smooth shipment processes, it is essential to provide documentation verifying the origin of goods. This requirement serves multiple purposes, including eligibility for duty and tax waivers as established in bilateral or multilateral trade agreements between countries. At Assutech, we recognized the need for an efficient solution to streamline the certificate of origin generation process. Previously, our clients relied on pre-printed certificates, manually filled in using typewriters. However, our innovative software now empowers our clients to effortlessly generate accurate and customized certificates of origin.



Our goals include simplifying the process, enhancing accuracy, enabling customization and compliance, embracing digital transformation, improving efficiency, and ultimately empowering our clients. By pursuing these goals, we aimed to revolutionize international trade documentation and provide an unparalleled experience for our clients.

Simplify the process
The primary goal of the project is to simplify and streamline the certificate of origin generation process for our clients. By replacing the manual, typewriter-based method with our innovative software, we aimed to significantly reduce time and effort required to create these documents.
Customization and flexibility
Our goal was to provide the client with a software solution that offers customization options, allowing them to tailor the certificate of origin templates according to their specific requirements. This flexibility ensures that the generated documents meet the unique needs of each client and adhere to the regulations of relevant trade agreements.
Improve efficiency
By automating the certificate of origin generation process, our software aimed to improve overall efficiency. The client can generate the required documents quickly and accurately, reducing administrative burdens and enabling faster and smoother shipment processes.
Client empowerment and satisfaction
Ultimately, our goal is to empower our clients by providing them with a user-friendly and efficient software solution. We aim to enhance their experience, increase satisfaction, and establish Assutech as a trusted and thinking partner in providing their software needs.

A New Territory for the Client

As we sought to revolutionize the process, we encountered several challenges that required careful consideration and innovative solutions. These challenges included technological transitions, data integration complexities, regulatory compliance, user adoption, system security, scalability and performance, user interface and experience, as well as ongoing support and updates. By acknowledging and addressing these challenges, we have been able to overcome obstacles and pave the way for frictionless product usage.

User Interface and Experience
Designing an intuitive and user-friendly interface that simplifies the certificate of origin generation process and enhances user experience is a challenge. The software should be accessible to users with varying levels of technical expertise and provide clear guidance throughout the document creation process.
Scalability and Performance
As the number of clients and certificate generation requests increases, ensuring that the software can handle the scalability and perform efficiently without slowdowns or system crashes is essential.
User Adoption
Encouraging staff of the client to embrace the new software solution and transition from their familiar typewriter-based method was met with resistance. Ease of use, and time-saving advantages of the software was an important component for a successful adoption.
System Security
Safeguarding sensitive trade and product information within the software is critical. Addressing potential security vulnerabilities and implementing robust data protection measures to ensure confidentiality and integrity of the generated certificates of origin was a challenge that needed to be addressed.

Simplifying Processes, Ensuring Accuracy, and Enabling Transparency

The introduction of the Certificate of Origin software marked a pivotal collaboration between Assutech and GCCI, delivering a highly stable and efficient system. The software revolutionized the process by offering easy data entry, significantly reducing errors and processing time. It seamlessly integrated with existing systems, ensuring streamlined document management and retrieval. The intuitive user interface catered to users of all technical backgrounds, enhancing accessibility and usability. Beyond improving operational efficiency, our solution played a vital role in facilitating compliance with trade agreements, enabling clients to obtain necessary documentation for duty and tax waivers. The Certificate of Origin software emerged as a remarkable achievement in trade documentation, simplifying processes, cutting costs, and elevating overall efficiency for international businesses. It served as a cornerstone of our successful partnership with GCCI, demonstrating our commitment to delivering stable, reliable, and impactful solutions.
