Indigo Software Welcomes GS1 UK Global Data Synchronisation data pool launch.
01 Mar 2005
Indigo Software, the supply chain management software specialist and member of GS1 UK (the new name for e-centre), welcomes the planned launch of the UK’s first Global Data Synchronisation (GDS) standards compliant data pool for the supply chain, facilitating collaborative commerce in multiple industries and business sectors. This follows the re-branding of e-Centre, the UK independent body responsible for promoting supply chain efficiency and standards, which was re-launched as GS1 UK in February 2005.
Simon Dadswell, Marketing Manager of Indigo Software said, “Indigo welcomes the GS1 UK planned GDS data pool launch as it offers a single point for all UK companies requiring worldwide data synchronisation with their existing and new customer base. Ensuring there is a single, standardised and internationally recognised repository for the worldwide supply chain to access clean, synchronised data is critical to the continued growth of truly efficient collaborative trading.
The role of GS1 will be to provide the platform of consistency that supply chain companies of all sizes can benefit from; it will enable accurate synchronisation of product information between trading partners and minimise errors and inaccurate data. Importantly GS1 will also drive and promote new product development in next generation services and technologies, such as RFID.”
