Web-Native Solution Allows FTZ Transactions to Be Conducted Wherever Internet Is Available
QuestaWeb, Inc. (www.questaweb.com), a premier provider of web-native, integrated global trade management software (GTM) solutions, announced today that EnerSys, a global leader in stored energy solutions for industrial applications, recently went live with QuestaWeb’s Foreign Trade Zone software (FTZQW). The solution not only allows EnerSys to concurrently manage two foreign trade zones (FTZs) on opposite U.S. coasts from its global headquarters in Reading, Pa., but also provides advanced technology to support compliant FTZ operations, including inventory control, recording keeping and data transmission.
Tom Biello, Senior Director of Customer Operations, EnerSys, said, “From mock testing to training through ‘go-live’ and daily operations, QuestaWeb delivered an outstanding plug-and-play solution. The implementation process went smoothly and completely according to plan. We found QuestaWeb and its team to be flexible and responsive to all our needs.”
Biello continues, “And, because the QuestaWeb solution is web-native by design, we can conduct FTZ transactions from home, when traveling, in a hotel and even in-flight on a plane. As long as an internet connection is available, we can access the platform. This feature is a real time saver.”
Eric Dalby, Director of FTZ Implementations, QuestaWeb, said, “QuestaWeb is known for its ability to accommodate special corporate requirements. We can respond to such requests because we offer one of the most modern and flexible software solutions available in the marketplace today. Plus, our programming team is second to none. EnerSys wanted to manage two separate FTZs, on opposite coasts of the United States, from a central corporate setting without having to be on site. And, EnerSys wanted to do so confident that all of the inventory, record-keeping and data transmission processes fully complied with U.S. Customs and Border Protection regulations. QuestaWeb is pleased that our FTZQW solution allowed us to deliver to EnerSys on all fronts.”
