Software Company, IES, Ltd. Receives Commendation for its ISF '10+2' Supply Chain Solution

Press release June 1, 2009 Business

Midland Park, NJ – IES Ltd., an industry leader in supply chain software solutions today announces testimonial on the ease of implementing IES’s Importer Security Filing (ISF) 10+2 solution, needed to imports goods via ocean into the United States

The landmark ISF regulation, formerly known as 10+2, now requires additional information about ocean shipments destined for the United States. George Manolis, IES's Senior Vice President of Operations explains, "The industry has known about ISF 10+2 for quite some time. The primary industry concern regarding the regulation was that the information required by CBP (Customs and Border Protection) would not always be easily obtainable or that implementation would become an enormous undertaking.  IES had been testing with CBP well before the final interim ruling went into effect. We leveraged this time to focus on our ISF applications from a user interface perspective while also concentrating on the ease and efficiency of the implementation process."

"We view our customers as partners. Simply stated, our goal was to equip our clients with training and knowledge while simultaneously ensuring a quick and easy filing process. The positive feedback we have received from our customer base is a solid indication that IES's ISF solutions are a resounding success."

The John S. James Company, headquartered in Savannah, Georgia is also keenly impressed by the IES suite of ISF Solutions. Len James, Director of Finance & Accounting provides details, "We recently implemented the ISF 10+2 Solution. The quality of the IES products as compared to other software vendors was immediately evident during the implementation process. The ease of the transition into ISF compliance really put into perspective the level of expertise that IES has achieved as a logistics and transportation software company."

"We take pride in offering exceptional services for all our clients. With IES, John S. James will continue to excel. Our success stems from exceeding the expectations of our customers with every interaction, every transaction, everyday. Working with IES ensures that we can offer the highest level of service while ensuring regulatory compliance. Overall, IES has truly exceeded our expectations with their ISF Solutions."
