Stay on top of your AES filing with Descartes Visual Compliance–Export Documentation Manager. Our automated export system helps ensure that you are using the right forms, abiding by EEI filing requirements, submitting your export documentation to the correct parties, adhering to new government regulations—all the while helping you establish and maintain an export compliance program that is up to code.


Staying up-to-date with government regulations is no easy task. Classifications, procedures, and export requirements change frequently. Export Documentation Manager helps you take care of your EEI requirements and filings.


Descartes Visual Compliance–Export Documentation Manager provides centralized alerts and status dashboards that direct you to anything that requires your attention. It provides an instant snapshot of your compliance status, helps determine where your goods are in the export compliance process, provides a full range of status indicators, and alerts you to potential issues. All of these features help you take control of, and simplify, the export process.


Descartes Visual Compliance–Export Documentation Manager is easy to set up, easy to learn, and easy to master. Even better, it learns as you use it, allowing you to create an automated export system that is uniquely tailored to your business. The system builds databases with the information you enter, simplifying your EEI filing and saving you time on future shipments. Prefilled shipment templates for standard or repeat shipping patterns means reduced re-keying work for you, and company-wide documentation consistency.


If you submit your own automated export system (AES) submissions you can streamline your export procedures and save on third-party fees. Descartes Visual Compliance–Export Documentation Manager takes care of your AES filing by allowing you to directly submit your forms to U.S. Customs with a single click. It also completes AES pre-validating verification to help ensure first-time AES acceptance. Your AES confirmation numbers (ITNs) will be printed automatically for proof of filing. Our software even determines which shipments require AES filing and which ones are exempt. What could be easier?
