The system allows therecording of the entire process of supporting, interacting and removing difficulties of the Customs authority with each business and the satisfaction level of each business for the service quality of the Customs authority. Accordingly, all databaseson businesses are classified into groups, import-export business fields andmanagement areas to effectively support and monitor.
The system also allows interaction with businesses through the function of automatic messaging, email and archiving operations with businesses.
