Outsource Your GDSN Synchronization Efforts to IDEA

IDEA’s Data Management Service, known as DMS, is a professional service provided to suppliers that use IRD CERICOMX® to synchronize data in the Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN) and publish product catalogs to retailers such as Lowe’s and Walmart. The DMS gives suppliers the option to outsource their GDSN synchronization efforts, enabling them to make product updates and seamlessly notify retailers without having to become an expert on the GDSN data sync requirements.

As part of the DMS service, IDEA works with suppliers to:

  • Compile data
  • Find proper codes
  • Validate data against GDSN rules
  • Publish and sort through retailer messages
  • And much more

The only time the supplier will be contacted is when additional product information is needed. The Data Management Service gives suppliers a peace of mind in knowing their product data is continuously synchronized with retailers and accessible 24/7 in a safe and secure hosted environment.

Suppliers can contact their account manager or email to request more information about DMS or to start taking advantage of the professional service today.
