It begins with your customs master data. Product Classification provides the home – a single source of consolidation where you can run automated, intuitive, secure searches of commodity codes and export control numbers in up to 150 tariff systems. Driven by the power of AI.
Product Classification harnesses the power of AI and smart rulebases to quickly find the right commodity code – using manual, automatic, or custom processes.
Product Classification stores all customs-related master data – goods descriptions, CAS numbers, country of origin, preferential origin, and much more – in a clean, user-friendly interface.
The latest commodity codes are automatically imported, checked, and updated in collaboration with our content partner Mendel Verlag.
One app – many applications. Product Classification also helps you find the right export control number, so you’ll breathe easy during customs and tax audits.
Take advantage of self-learning automation. Newly added articles are compared to previously classified goods. The software uses matching characteristics to determine the appropriate commodity code and export control number.
The plug-in for classification can be integrated seamlessly with SAP®. Users simply work in their familiar environment, initiate searches from there, and find the commodity codes directly where their master data is in the SAP® system.
Our Product Classification application programming interface (API) lets you integrate other IT systems. Support is available from our API documentation, test features, and teams of experts.
Transfer material master data, sync data with the ERP system, access content data immediately, embed Product Classification interfaces directly in your host system: Dedicated web services make all of this possible.
You can also import or export data using the file interface. A standardized file interface makes it possible to import the relevant data in a predefined format and then export it again when classification is complete.
No, you do not need to restart the classification work each year. Product Classification has a year-end update feature to automatically reassign all the unambiguous new commodity codes for the next year. A preview feature lets you check the classification, of course. In the case of ambiguities, you are prompted with the possible commodity codes. Then, simply select the correct one.
No. You can also use Product Classification without connecting to a host system (ERP, etc.). It’s helpful to have Product Classification automatically exchange data with your host system, but of course you also have the option of using a CSV file to export the data to your host system, where your team can work on it before importing it back to Product Classification.
Product Classification lets you first assign the correct export/import commodity code and export control number, then insert a subsequent approval step – for each material individually or for multiple materials simultaneously.
"Classifying products is a complicated process that requires a high level of expertise. For companies I speak to, it's an onerous and time-consuming task that (unfortunately) needs to be repeated regularly. When I explain how the self-learning algorithm of our solution largely automates the process, they are amazed and were often not even aware that IT support in this area exists."
