GCCI Certificate of Origin Software - Establishing the origin of goods.
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.
