Data synchronisation service hits milestone in food & beverage sector

GS1 Australia’s National Product Catalogue service has hit a major milestone, welcoming it’s 2000th registration.

Launched in 1997, the National Product Catalogue (formerly EANnet and GS1net) is GS1 Australia’s data synchronisation solution that helps businesses exchange standardised supply chain data including product details, pricing and marketing-related information with their trading partners.

John Hearn, GS1 Australia’s Head of Data & Digital Content Services said, “The National Product Catalogue service has been around for twenty years and has constantly evolved and been enhanced to meet the data hungry needs of today’s eCommerce, supply chain and digital channels. Support for the Country of Origin Labelling requirements and enhanced user interface are just some of the recent service enhancements.”

“With 2000 active users, we have a thriving National Product Catalogue community that relies on the service to underpin trade between suppliers and buyers, covering identification, logistical, compliance, pricing and consumer facing data requirements.”

GS1 Australia has enjoyed a successful uptake of the National Product Catalogue over the years. It is currently one of the top three largest Global Data Synchronisation Network (GDSN) data pools, with over 1.1 million Global Trade Item Numbers (GTINs) from 2000 user organisations, split evenly across the Food & Beverage and Healthcare sectors.

“Hitting the 2000 subscriber mark is a significant milestone, highlighting not only positive growth but the continued success of the service,” added Mr Hearn.

The National Product Catalogue is an extremely successful data synchronisation solution, providing suppliers and data recipients with exceptional functionality and usability to achieve objectives.
