Companies need to accurately classify products, pinpoint documentation requirements and stay current with government changes as goods cross borders. For many businesses, robust customization and Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) connectivity is not required. Instead, a quick and easy rollout of a powerful Harmonized System (HS) classification solution is a better choice to realize a rapid time-to-value.
