The Bureau of Customs (BOC), the Philippines will install a new Integrated Philippine Computer System (IPCS) to increase the agency’s efficiency and improve its workflow.

The new system is designed to revamp the agency’s existing information technology system and address the recurring problem of computer network slowdown and downtime.

The BOC’s Management Information System and Technology Group (MISTG) officer Jaime Taborda, who is in charge for system management, said that the IPCS will not only practically overhaul the agency’s Electronic to Mobile system (E2M), but once fully operated, it will feature additional features to accelerate transaction and provide a tighter controls.

The MISTG is in the process of finalising Terms of Reference for the IPCS, and the preparation for the bidding of the same which is conducted by the procurement service office of the government.

Port of Batangas Deputy Collector for Assessment Celso Tugday said that the IPCS would help the BOC’s frontline officials in revenue collection and shipment monitoring and allow them to have a real time management over all cargo movement.

“Providing us with advance information of cargoes will enable us to enforce more efficiently our revenue collection and anti-smuggling initiatives,” Tugday said.

He also added that the new system will allow the port officials to prepare the necessary steps to meet the requirements of all incoming and outgoing shipments.

The Port of Batangas with its high-tech facilities is used mainly by the country’s major auto dealers, and now it generates about PHP 1.53 billion (US$ 37.1 million) in revenues for the government each week.
