CLARK, N.J. — April 3, 2013 — QuestaWeb, Inc., a premier provider of Web-based, integrated Global
Trade Management (GTM) solutions, announced today that it has entered into an alliance partnership
with Chihuahua, Mexico-based AduanaSoft, Inc., a leading provider of IT solutions that automate
Mexican Customs clearance, and assure import and export compliance. Under the terms of the
alliance, QuestaWeb and AduanaSoft have integrated their software to offer a seamless solution for
U.S. companies manufacturing in Mexico’s maquiladora industry and thus conducting trade on both
sides of the border. The single system allows companies to benefit from the IMMEX Program, while
generating all required documentation in full compliance with all the regulations of both
governments. Further, this alliance, in conjunction with a soon-to-be-released solution for Canada,
positions the integrated system as a global trade compliance solution for all of North America.
QuestaWeb has long recognized Mexico’s status as a premier sourcing locale and growing
manufacturing base. However, U.S. firms seeking to leverage the market advantages arising from
favorable trade agreements and geographic proximity often had to resort to separate solutions for
each side of the border. Unfortunately, efforts to comply with Mexican regulations frequently
created bottlenecks because the documentation produced by piecemeal solutions was inaccurate or
incomplete, overlooked regulatory changes or miscalculated tariffs.
QuestaWeb thus sought a highly qualified partner to bring to market a single solution that
could deliver the same reliable services and assured compliance as QuestaWeb’s U.S. solutions do.
In AduanaSoft, QuestaWeb found a leader in Web-native software with a 17-year history of excellence
in serving over 350 customers. Notably, the two companies found they already shared customers in
common that would welcome the efficiencies and economies made possible by only having to enter
Eduardo Ramos, CEO of AduanaSoft, said, “Manufacturing in Mexico is all about cost savings
and speed to market for U.S. companies. Firms want to move raw materials/parts/components in and
finished goods out as quickly as possible. Unfortunately, navigating the supply chain can create
bottlenecks, especially when attempting to comply with Mexican regulations. In entering into this
alliance, our two companies will optimize trade between the United States and Mexico assuring
compliance, reducing costs and eliminating holdups.”
Leon Turetsky, CEO of QuestaWeb, said, “In AduanaSoft, we found a company that operated using
a similar business model and shared our penchant for excellence and customer service. Our system
designs are highly complementary, thus facilitating seamless integration. AduanaSoft, like
QuestaWeb, offers modular, Internet-based products; provides real-time database updates; allows
electronic payment of pedimentos; and enables users to customize both the system and reports to
meet their specific needs. It is an ideal match that will help promote the economies of both
countries by simplifying cross-border transactions.”
QuestaWeb is exhibiting at the 39th Annual Conference of the National Customs Brokers &
Freight Forwarders Association of America (NCBFFAA) in Rancho Mirage, Calif. from April 7-10. Both
companies will be represented at Booth #412, and interested parties are invited to stop by and
learn more about this alliance and this exciting new trade solution.
