Product Data Integration

Automatic synchronization of product data sheets between customers and suppliers.

EDICOMData a GDSN Catalog Integrated with Your Management System

The EDICOMData Data Pool integration module automates the publication of product data on the GDSN network. It simplifies the information updating routines for suppliers and manufacturers. These integration capabilities translate into significant management advantages for distributors. As subscribers to the published information, distributors can automate the synchronization of their product databases each time their suppliers update an attribute.

Agile and Efficient Integration of Product Data in the Health Care and Retail Sector

Ensure that all members of the supply chain are able to communicate product data effectively. 

Synchronize information in the healthcare sector with manufacturers, distributors, hospitals, pharmacies, government agencies, associations, and others. Harmonize product data in the retail sector between large distribution chains, suppliers, wholesalers, logistics partners or any other member of the supply chain.
