Support: What is an Import Management System (IMS)?

What is an Import Management System (IMS)?
An Import Management System (IMS) is a supply chain platform that uses technology to plan, execute, and optimize the import supply chain. The entire process becomes efficient and secure, and your products get to market swiftly and in great condition.

An IMS works by connecting with your ERP* to receive and digitize your international orders. Your digitized orders are then presented to your suppliers via a secure cloud-based platform. Upon receipt of your order, you are fully connected to your suppliers and products throughout the 90 days it takes on average to produce your orders. The platform contains process, workflow, and automation to ensure that all order activities are conducted in an efficient and transparent manner.

*Connectivity available by API, CSV, EDI, OCR, and data entry.
