Benefits of Commport GDSN

Just some of the many benefits to implementing GDSN within your business operations

Standardized Data Exchange

Commport GDSN establishes a common language for product information by defining a set of standardized attributes and formats. This ensures consistency in the exchange of data, reducing discrepancies and errors between trading partners. By adhering to these standardized data formats, businesses can seamlessly share product information across their supply chain networks.

Global Data Pools

Commport GDSN operates through a network of interconnected data pools. Suppliers upload their product data to their chosen data pool, which then synchronizes and distributes the information to other data pools worldwide. This global network ensures that trading partners can access and utilize accurate and up-to-date product information, regardless of their geographic location.

Centralized Product Repositories

Commport Datapools serve as centralized repositories of product data, ensuring a single source of truth for shared information. This centralized approach eliminates the need for individual data exchange agreements and enables real-time updates, providing a reliable foundation for efficient supply chain management. By maintaining a centralized repository, businesses can efficiently manage and distribute product information to their trading partners.

Comprehensive Product Attributes

Commport GDSN supports a wide range of product attributes, including product descriptions, packaging details, nutritional information, pricing, regulatory data, and more. This comprehensive coverage allows for precise and holistic product representation, facilitating better decision-making across the supply chain. By including a diverse set of attributes, Commport GDSN ensures that all relevant product information is accurately shared, promoting transparency and consistency.

Regulatory Compliance

GDSN plays a crucial role in assisting businesses in adhering to various regulatory requirements. For instance, it helps companies comply with the EU's Food Information to Consumers Regulation (FIC), which mandates accurate and up-to-date nutritional information on food products. Similarly, GDSN aids compliance with regulations such as the FDA's Unique Device Identification (UDI) requirements in the healthcare industry. By facilitating accurate and standardized product information sharing, GDSN helps companies meet compliance standards and streamlines regulatory reporting processes.

Increased Efficiency and Accuracy

With automated data synchronization, businesses can ensure that their trading partners have access to the most up-to-date and accurate product information. This streamlined approach improves operational efficiency and reduces time-consuming manual tasks, allowing supply chain partners to focus on core business activities.

With GDSN, trading partners always have the latest information in their systems, and any changes made to one company’s data are automatically and immediately provided to all of the other companies who do business with them. This is the case not only Walmart but data updates are also sent to any other retail customers who are using the GDSN. When a supplier and a customer know they are using the same accurate and up-to-date data, it is smoother, quicker and less expensive for them to do business together. The GDSN provides a single point of truth for product information. Because of the standardized and automated architecture of the network trading partners may belong to any GDSN-certified data pool in order to do data synchronization. This means that you are not forced to use one data pool over another simply because your retail customer has chosen a particular provider.
