Markus Kellermeyer, head of technology consulting at itelligence AG, says: “Companies that use SAP now have the advantage of being able to realize their connection to ATLAS-Ausfuhr directly and with no detours or additional interfaces in the SAP system. it.x-atlas ensures that data transfer to the German Customs Administration is integrated in the SAP landscape. Therefore, no third-party system is needed.”
All companies that export to countries outside Europe must comply with the extensive customs regulations and declare its goods for export to the German Customs Administration. Whereas this information exchange has previously often been carried out in a highly time-consuming manner by hand and on paper, it can now be done electronically, which is much faster and more secure. From July 1, 2009, electronic data exchange with the customs authorities will be compulsory for exporters. This means that all exporting companies must use a connection to the digital customs system ATLAS. The itelligence solution it.x-atlas makes this electronic data exchange much easier.
