Wichita Regional Chamber embraces essCert
Wichita Regional Chamber of Commerce is now live with essCert electronic Certificates of Origin (eCOs), enabling its Exporter and Freight Forwarder members to apply for eCOs online via the secure platform. Wichita Chamber, in turn, can now review applications as well as electronically sign, stamp and return eCOs to applicants.
The Chamber recently adopted essCert to streamline and digitize its Certificate of Origin processes and provide value-add service to its growing member base, saving time and money while ensuring a secure, efficient and speedy process for eCO applicants using the solution.
Wichita Regional is targeting 50% paperless certification by end of Q4 2018 and aiming to reach 100% paperless by end Q1 2019, whereby all CO applications, reviews and approvals will be handled online.
Commenting on the recent go-live, Jaime Dupy, Director, Investor & Strategic Development, Wichita Regional Chamber, said: “essCert allows us to provide a streamlined service to our members, while also making our Certificate of Origin processing a simple and efficient process both for us as well as CO applicants.”
Wichita Regional joins 200+ Chambers of Commerce issuing eCOs out of 12 export countries for imports into 203 countries.
