CLARK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--QuestaWeb, Inc. (www.questaweb.com), a premier provider of Web-based, integrated Global Trade Management (GTM) solutions, announced today that the firm’s Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) Division doubled its customer base in 2013. The division, founded in 2009 to meet the specialized compliance needs of companies employing an FTZ in its business model, now counts firms in the automotive, electronics, manufacturing, logistics, pharmaceutical, biotech and wholesale distribution industries in its client portfolio.
The overwhelming response to the December 2009 release of FTZQW, an advanced, Web-based software module that automates FTZ operation and related distribution and manufacturing actions, spurred creation of QuestaWeb’s FTZ Division. Since then, customers cite automation, ease of use and integration, customizability, and two deployment options (SaaS and self-hosted) as key factors driving their acquisition decision.
QuestaWeb’s FTZQW offers FTZ operators and tenants the following functionality:
- Direct electronic filing of Customs Form 214
- Fully automated distribution and manufacturing procedures
- Direct electronic filing of FTZ entries, weekly estimates and in-bonds
- Database of pre-classified parts/products, including bills of material
- Automated Export System (AES) connection to file export manifest information directly
- Multi-layered integration interfaces that unify multiple platforms (ERP, WMS and MRP)
- Automated generation and storage of documents and analytical reports
Wayne Slossberg, Senior Vice President of QuestaWeb, said, “We are excited by the marketplace response to our FTZ technology. Our goal is to help companies achieve the cost efficiencies FTZs confer with utmost confidence that they are complying with all federal rules and regulations. We find that each company’s requirements vary, but our FTZ staff prides themselves in their ability to meet these unique needs with our technology. Our personnel are specialists who know the FTZ space and are continually adding new and innovative functionality. In my opinion, technological innovation and customer commitment are key reasons why QuestaWeb doubled its client base in 2013.”
