Click Reasons Below To See Why EdgeCTP is Perfect for Domestic + Overseas Trading

Use the built-in Contact Relationship Management (CRM) system to remind you keep in touch with your valued clients and track where they are in the buying cycle.  Work individually or as a team to identify, connect and win new business clients or ensure you have a range of suppliers in the CRM so you can source the best price.  A CRM built around your needs.

A Stock Control and Inventory Management system, built seamlessly into EdgeCTP, ensure that you’ve got accurate and timely tracking of the goods and materials you have in-hand.  Automatic stock reorder triggers, when quantities run low or large orders need to be met.  Warehouses allow simply management of stock locations, and powerful stock reporting too.

Knowing what components (materials) you need to complete the manufacturing of a product is criteria if you want to fulfil an order in a timely manner.  Bills of Materials (BoM) is a list of the materials you need to assemble a product from start to finish, and goes to 6 levels deep.  BoMs also help defining the origin of a product, i.e. its materials origin + final assembly.

Coupled into the CRM and Stock Control elements of EdgeCTP you get the ability to manage suppliers and purchases.  From knowing when you need to reorder stock and from whom, to sending Requests-For-Quotes (RFQs), and placing Purchase Orders with the winning supplier.  Later updating stock when goods arrive and paying supplier invoices (bills).

Making or building products either to order or to hold-in-stock, EdgeCTP has a complete manufacturing work flow to help guide you from planning to completion.  Batches help with quality control, so we’ve incorporated that in EdgeCTP, along with matching the batches to sales orders or finished goods warehouse locations.

To support your buying and selling needs, whether nationally or internationally, EdgeCTP has a comprehensive range of 23 documents (from Quotes, Proformas, Invoices, Packing List, Export Cargo Shipping Instructions, Dangerous Goods Notes etc.) and several certificates (Certificates of Origin, Movement Certs etc.).
Whether you use your own logistics firms or any of the seamlessly pre-connected, integrated carriers (FedEx, TNT, UPS etc.) within EdgeCTP, you can compare rates; arrange collection; pack. load + track goods to the destination, and if necessary handle returned goods too – all from within EdgeCTP. Additionally, ETDs (Electronic Trade Documents) are supported.

When shipping goods overseas or receiving them from international markets, customs declarations are an import step in international trade.  EdgeCTP connects with customs declarations systems (via Descartes) to support Export and Import declarations.  Further, if you’re using the postal service then the CN22 and CN23 are easily completed.

Overseas buyers and sellers may want settlement in their own domestic currency, rather than yours.  Instead of relying in bank FX rates, EdgeCTP facilities access to FX payments service providers, who could provide better rates.  Additionally, via Chambers of Commerce, an export office support service can also be requested via EdgeCTP.
