Montreal, Canada (PRWEB) June 16, 2016
3CE Technologies, the global leader in automated customs commodity classification, congratulates its partner, Thomson Reuters, for winning the 2016 CODiE Award for best Content Search and Discovery Solution.
Powered by 3CE, “Checkpoint Global HS”, was recognized by the Software Information Industry Association for its innovation in simplifying the first, and the most complex and error-prone step in cross-border trade; Harmonized System (HS) commodity classification.
"This award highlights the technical advancements made by 3CE and Thomson Reuters, and validates the approach that we have taken in solving this chronic and costly problem for the international trade community," said Randy Rotchin, President and CEO of 3CE Technologies.
“3CE’s contribution to the success of Global HS is fundamental,” added Suzanne Offerman, director of product management for international trade, with the Tax & Accounting Thomson Reuters business. “3CE’s classification engine in Checkpoint Global HS allows users to expertly generate customs commodity codes and obtain duty information for more than 160 countries by understanding everyday commercial goods descriptions and interacting with users in an intuitive way. Global HS users can also use that same information to conduct country-to-country comparisons in the Create-a-Chart feature on Checkpoint. It’s been a great partnership.”
3CE HS classification tools have been developed with the understanding that international trade professionals cannot afford to arbitrate through long lists of mostly irrelevant “potential” keyword matches; they require a single, correct answer immediately.
