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.
Advantages for the Publisher
As publishers of product information, suppliers manage product information internally. This ensures that all updates are immediately published in their catalog and distributed to their community of subscribers.
Publication of Products Using EDICOMData - GDSN Data Pool
EDICOM defines an interface with the supplier to extract data from its management systems.
The products published in EDICOMData with their attributes appear in the defined data interface and in the agreed format (txt, csv, idoc, etc.).
The EDICOM platform translates this data into the standard defined by the GDSN network and publishes it in the EDICOMData Data Pool..
EDICOMData communicates with the GS1 International Global Registry, indexing the new product if it is new to the catalog, or notifying the update if it is a modification of an existing product attribute.

Advantages for Subscribers
The subscribers' integration systems allow them to continuously update their product masters every time a publisher modifies any of the attributes of its references.
Subscription Through EDICOMData – Data Pool GDSN
The Distributor indicates which products it wishes to subscribe to. The subscription request is sent to the GS1 International Global Registry, which identifies the Data Pool where the information for each product is located and sends it to the owners-publisher of each product.
The publisher accepts the subscription request, at which point the synchronization process of the authorized products begins.
Each time a product is updated the subscriber receives the updated information.
With the appropriate integration processes, this data can be integrated into the distributor's management system or PIM (Product Item Manager).
European Regulation 1169: Product Data Synchronization
Since the enactment of Regulation 1169 in December 2014, businesses are required to provide consumers with the nutritional information on their products before they buy them. This means that online food retailers must make provisions to guarantee access to this data. EDICOMData, the EDICOM Data Pool, has features specifically designed to meet the requirements of European regulation 1169.
