As the pressure intensifies on supply chains to deliver products faster and more effectively, manufacturers, distributors and retailers worldwide are implementing global data synchronization strategies and turning to the Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN).
GDSN connects data pools to the GS1 Global Registry™, a global “yellow pages” directory operated by GS1 GDSN, Inc. The network provides an environment where standards-based data is exchanged in a streamlined manner throughout your entire global supply chain, reducing supply chain errors with information that is accurate, up-to-date and compliant with industry standards.
Stibo Systems STEP, a Master Data Management (MDM) platform, is a key enabler for global data synchronization. By implementing the platform prior to joining the GDSN, you will have a stronger foundation on which to execute a successful data synchronization strategy. And if you are already synchronizing product data at some level, the platform will help you reap the full benefits of your GDSN investment.
