Strong Austria year with customs software specialist Dakosy

Growing demand for Zodiak GE, a European customs clearance software; successful implementation at Unisped Speditions GmbH

Strong Austria year with customs software specialist Dakosy

In 2017, the Hamburg-based software company Dakosy gained numerous freight forwarders in Austria as customers for its European customs software Zodiak GE. These also include Unisped Speditions GmbH, based in Suben on the German-Austrian border.

Dakosy’s Zodiak GE is a certified software solution, which provides one user interface to cover Germany, Austria and if required also other EU countries (e.g.Belgium, Netherlands) as well as Switzerland. This unique selling proposition features modules for order entry, invoicing and billing as well as open interfaces for financial accounting.

Ernst Stolzlechner, Managing Director of Unisped Speditions GmbH, immediately liked the software after a presentation: “We have always been looking for a solution that covers everything. We already have used electronic customs software solutions. However, we used an in-house development for billing, while bookkeeping was covered by a tax consultant. “

The decision in favor of Zodiak GE was made in the summer of 2016. The add-ons, such as the forwarding book and the financial accounting interface, were started subsequently.

For a three-day workshop and an initial training, Ernst Stolzlechner and one of his key users traveled to Dakosy in Hamburg. There he got the answears to all his open questions and was informed about the system requirements by various experts.

The training focused on the program and administrative processes of Zodiak GE. In a second training held at Unisped, customs clearance, order processing and billing covered the remaining areas so that all the functionality of the software could then be used.

Unisped employees appreciate working with Zodiak GE. The mere possibility of opening and processing several customs declarations in Germany or Austria at the same time is convenient and enables even more efficient work processes in day-to-day business. “The cooperation with Dakosy is excellent, as our contact person from the South office and the specialists from Hamburg always respond quickly and competently to our requirements,” reports Ernst Stolzlechner.
