Xylem implemented, a cloud based system, with five separate ERP systems across its global business units in fewer than three weeks. The flexible, on-demand solution covers all key export compliance capabilities, including maintaining reference data, screening trade parties, producing documentation and providing audit trails.
“We needed a user friendly, automated solution that could connect to multiple systems, expand as we grow our business and allow us to continuously screen entities,” said Charles Mooney, director of trade compliance, Xylem, Inc. “With Export On-Demand, we have removed redundancies in our compliance process because we no longer have to screen individual customers. We are thrilled with the speed of implementation and look forward to exploring added functionality in the future.”
Before implementing Export On-Demand, Xylem relied on a semi-automated process for screening customers, vendors and partners against the various government-issued restricted party lists. However, with its diverse business groups, Xylem needed a simple to use, flexible, fully automated screening solution that also managed its export and import data and could be deployed quickly without costly software or hardware.
Export On-Demand’s flexibility allows Xylem to manage, add or delete users as needed; create a more comprehensive screening process; and provide global 24x7 export compliance support to users, including trade compliance professionals, shipping, customer service, IT, and human resources.
“We applaud Xylem’s commitment to improving its export compliance program and anticipate its expanded use of automation technology to lead to further company successes,” said John Preuninger, president and COO of Amber Road. “With its turn-key implementation, Export On-Demand is a perfect solution for exporters that want to make an immediate impact to their export operations with a fast return on their compliance technology investment.”
