Learn More About Our Data Sync & GDSN

Providing accurate and complete product information is an important part of our business. Our diverse product offerings can be described or characterized in a number of different ways. We support providing product information as efficicenly as possible to our trading partners via the Global Data Synchronization Network.

Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN)

GDSN enables secure system-to-system transmissions of standardized product data between trading partners governed by GS1, a global organization that provides data governance, standards development, and education for a range of industries.

To join the GDSN and receive product data:

  1. Select a GS1 certified data pool
  2. Agree with a trading partner to exchange product data
  3. Subscribe to products by item (GTIN) or manufacturer (GLN)

We have chosen 1SYNC as our GS1 certified data pool for all our brands. 1SYNC stores our compliant product information, including product descriptions, dimensions, weights, and classification codes. We strongly encourage our trading partners to consider the GDSN as their product data source, as this enables trading partners to electronically share standardized product data in a timely fashion.
