Our SAP GTS service offer


The GTS team
  • GTS practice employs industry-trained GTS consultants, each with a minimum of five full GTS deployments, along with trade compliance specialists supporting clients’ trade operations.
  • Unlike all competitors in this area, our GTS consultants are required to have both technical skills and a real knowledge of trade compliance.
  • GTS practice consultants have extensive past experience with SAP ERP (R/3 and ECC), especially in those areas that impact GTS.
  • All projects are conducted in collaboration with the entire global trade team, so all of our clients benefit equally from our experience, best practices and methodology.
The Global Capability
  • GTS supports local country trade compliance requirements using a standard structure and variable rules.
  • Once a “best practice” structure is setup for one country it can be replicated for all others.
  • Can be applied for licensing, forms, electronic communication, trade preference, duty calculation, etc.
  • NextLink’s expertise with deployments in Switzerland, US, Canada, UK, Ireland, France, Poland, Germany, UAE, Australia, Singapore, India, South Korea and Malaysia to deploy GTS globally with low risk and minimal duration.
The Reputation
  • We are often asked by a client to fix the work done by other GTS consultants who had less experience. We did this so frequently, it developed into our most successful service: The GTS Body Scan.
  • We provide bonuses to our consultants based almost entirely on whether a client will enthusiastically recommend the consultant and NextLink to colleagues and business associates.
  • We have used the expertise and reputation we’ve gained from GTS implementations to offer our clients additional GTS-related services.
