This provides the ability to detect a wide range of otherwise untraceable risk and fraud behavior patterns.
The introduction and implementation of new technologies require methodical knowledge transfer, training, and extensive capacity building programs, to ensure maximum efficiency and compliance with local policies and regulations. In an exciting ceremony held in Nairobi, the Regional Office for Capacity Building represented by Director Liza, and Ultra, represented by David Smason, VP Business Development signed into effect an MOU for unprecedented support of the region.

On hand to witness the ceremony, representing the Honorable Lilian Nyawanda, Commissioner Customs & Border Control, Kenya Revenue Authority was Madam Josephine Manyasi, Deputy Commissioner, Trade Facilitation.
