It is a transparent solution that concentrates B2B-specific functionalities on the GDSN (Global Data Synchronization Network) or private data synchronization communities in a single environment.

EDICOMData - What is a Data Publisher?

Manufacturers and suppliers publish information automatically about their products in electronic data catalogs that they share with their trading partners in real time.

1

Uploading

The publisher uses a data entry process to upload its product data and company information to the database.

2

Registration

The Data Pool then publishes the basic information for each product in the Global Data Registry, which stores the information and makes it available for subsequent access and consultation by subscribers.

3

Authorization

During the registration process, the publisher defines a list of distributors who may request information on the publisher's products through the GDSN network. A list of authorized subscribers is compiled, after which the two product data platforms are synchronized to share data in real time.

GDSN: Who Subscribes to the Information?

Subscribers are distributors who take advantage of data synchronization technology to access real-time, standardized and up-to-date information on their suppliers' products

Subscription Order

Subscribers use specific data forms to sign up to receive product information from one or several publishers. EDICOMData currently offers several segmentation possibilities, since the application allows subscribers to filter according to different parameters (publisher, sector, product family, geographical area, etc.). The subscription request is sent to the GDSN network for processing and the subscriber data and their subscription request are sent to the selected publishers.

Reception of Information

When the subscription request is sent, the publisher receives the user's data and may send a message confirming receipt of the information and thus the synchronization of both data catalogs. This is an optional message that publishers can use to certify that the entire process has been carried out correctly. It is not essential, however, since the two platforms are synchronized when the subscription request is launched.

Product Data Synchronization Services

EDICOMData implements specific tools for integrating and uploading product information in compliance with the specifications of the different projects and the various public and private synchronization networks.

Product Data Management Integration

Data Integration

EDICOMData lets you automate the synchronization of product master data with your suppliers or customers using powerful integration tools that allow you to manage the publication and subscription processes from your ERP, PIM or any other internal information system you use.

So whenever an essential attribute of an item is updated, it is automatically communicated to EDICOMData, which launches the synchronization processes in the corresponding publication and subscription environments. Calls are also made to other GDSN Data Pools to request or, where appropriate, serve the product information to be synchronized.

Product Data Management

Data Uploading

If your product synchronization processes with your clients do not require the publication of high volumes of product information, you may prefer a non-integrated solution for uploading data. 

The product information can be uploaded or published directly on EDICOMData's Data Pool data entry screens. If you prefer, you can manage your product information in structured files such as MS Excel and import them from the EDICOMData interface enabled for this purpose.
