How it Works
What our Customers & Users say
We are known for our great customer response, so using essCert to get the Certificates of Origin within a couple of hours is a huge help.
We have been working closely with essCert for over seven years and have developed a first-class working relationship. Over the years nothing has been a problem to the essCert Support Team and have upgraded the system and process to suit. The development to meet all the Chambers’ needs has been second to none, in order to work with all our compliance requirements. Nothing can compare to the friendly, professional and “can do attitude” of all the staff, keep up the great work.
Annette Kinghorn, Sr. Certification Officer

Bolloré Logistics (SDV)
essCert gives us a lot of flexibility in organising company’s division of labour. Sales offices all around the world can apply for and issue their own Certificates of origin and get other documents certified. If needed an application can be sent from the office in Miami and printed out in the office in Dubai. essCert gives us also the possibility to have a good and easy overview over all documents that our company has applied for and of course it is more convenient to fill in all applications on-line, not mentioning that the whole process is much faster.
Export Coordinator, Stockholm, Sweden
We switched on essCert's credit card facility for key customer segments and gained immediate improvements in cash-flow and credit control, with related time and money savings for our accounts team. The introduction of credit cards plus the invoicing and VAT receipts options was positively received by most customers. The team at essCert were very responsive, nothing was too much trouble and we are delighted to now have these payment options – which are very flexible and easily controlled by us.

The essCert system is extremely beneficial to us as previously someone from the office had to physically drive to Ballina, complete the details in the Chamber offices and wait for approval before returning to the office with the paperwork. The essCert service has simplified the process and in removing the necessity to travel to Ballina it means that person is in the office focused on activities generating value for PEL Waste Reduction Equipment.
