Global Data Synchronisation Network (GDSN)
Global Data Synchronisation Network is a system which lets trading partners access and exchange securely product information in real-time. Product information data must be entered into a data pool, a database of standardised product information that manages this information between trading partners via the network.
In less than 5 years, the number of GDSN users worldwide has grown to over 20,000. Companies can have complete control over who gets to see your product information.
The GS1 UK TrueSource solution gives you the tools to easily manage accurate and trusted product data that complies with GS1 industry standards. It incorporates a certified data pool and is your route into GDSN.
The GDSN standards are a set of agreed identification keys and product information attributes which can be used by any company regardless of size, industry or location. This allows different companies to use the same names for the same things, limiting mistakes. GDSN makes it possible for suppliers and their trade partners to have the same data about the products they are trading.
Some of the largest retailers, suppliers and food operators in the UK and around the world use the GDSN, including:
Many retailers are adopting GDSN as their method of exchanging product data.
