Institutional Reforms

Our solutions always work better in a streamlined institutional environment. We work to maximise the benefit of our technology by helping to adjust the overall administrative and organisational background of the institutions we work with.

No Government administration is exactly the same; The country environment, its sociology, history, heritage and culture often profoundly affects the way in which standardised foreign-trade tools are delivered.  We aim to provide systems in optimal environments.

Improved ability to internalise and support modern technology and to optimise performance according to international best practice.

Identification and elimination of breaches of integrity through built-in checks and measures, flagging of risk areas, and real-time monitoring of potentially inappropriate transactions.

Real-time reporting and identification of clearance delays, incidents, and performance, following internationally recognised standards, and with real-time analysis enabling swift remedial action.

A vision of what processing of foreign trade should look like in the 21st century at national, local, and border post level, and along smart and integrated transport corridors.

More about Institutional Reforms...

We offer a thorough review and recommendations of the work environment, legislation, and administrative structure of the institutions we work with. We also provide tools to measure the effectiveness of Customs administrations, identify weaknesses, and pinpoint necessary action.

Our Department of Institutional Reforms carries out a thorough audit and recommendations of existing organisation and procedures, submits recommendations for modernisation of the administration, identifies legislative or administrative gaps, and, based on worldwide experience, offers a roadmap for phased reforms to allow Customs and other institutions to make the best out of modern technology as it is rolled-out.

Training and exposure to international best practice is part of the modernisation package and fits into a detailed holistic change management strategy.

Our administrative tools, such as WEV, are designed to meet international criteria for performance monitoring and provide national decision makers with a powerful monitoring and control tool, together with the ability to carry out simulations, evaluate the return on investment, close loopholes, and benchmark performance according to international best practice.

Through the combination of our entire suite of tools and software we offer countries and regions the ability to think ahead along a transnational or corridor approach, combining allowed data exchange, pooling of resources whenever possible, defining new border management processes at country and agency level and across the border, catering for the needs of local communities so that cross-border small trade is treated ethically and efficiently, improving enforcement and compliance along transit routes, and overall reducing delays, bureaucracy, and harassment.
