Vivansa “The eCustoms People” is a private company delivering 15+ years of Customs & Trade facilitation business expertise and IT excellence.
Vivansa has been participating to the major Customs Union reforms launched by the EU and has gained the confidence of the involved stakeholders (European Commission (DG TAXUD), national Customs/Tax authorities, Economic Operators) with respect to a shared vision for providing electronic Customs solutions as well as trusted service provider.
Vivansa benefits from a EU-wide presence through its network of Regional Sales Offices aiming at developing Vivansa activities on 4 main regions: Benelux (with two offices respectively based in Brussels-Wavre, BE, and Luxembourg, LU), Eastern Europe (with office based in Sofia, BG), Southern Europe (with office to be opened soon in Limassol, CY) and Nordics (with office to be opened soon in Copenhagen, DK).
Vivansa workforce encompasses 30+ experts that are either attached to those Regional Sales Offices or to the Vivansa International Excellence Centre (IEC) based in Sofia. Those experts are IT specialists with strong knowledge of Customs-related business processes modelling (BPM) and solid SOA background (most of them being TOGAF- and/or ARIS-Certified) as well as (non-IT) Customs experts involved in business-level discussions. Vivansa is also promoting the development of a web community of Customs Experts around the globe involved in some R&D activities, all of them being federated under the company label “the eCustoms People”.
Vivansa has a constant growth and consolidated annual revenue of €2M in FY2016. About 40% of the revenue base is recurring, deriving from the upgrade and maintenance of its turnkey solutions as well as subcontracting activities to major IT partner companies.
