Be Efficient. Be Compliant. Be Transparent.

This year more than 250 1WorldSync community members gathered in Austin, Texas for 1WorldSync Annual User Group, Americas to collaborate on hot topics under the theme: Be Efficient. Be Compliant. Be Transparent. With informative sessions addressing key industry pain points relating to supply chain efficiencies, regulatory compliance and any channel commerce, Annual User Group, Americas attendees heard how leaders in their community are addressing challenges and empowering their businesses for trusted product information exchange. As part of the dynamic agenda, fourteen 1WorldSync customers took the stage to share their success stories and attendees were treated to a special preview of The Attribute Graph (TAG) by 1WorldSync’s Chief Marketing Officer, Nick Parnaby.

The Fifth Annual Power of 1 Awards rounded out the event with General Mills, The Kellogg Company, Knights Apparel, McDonalds, Mondelez International and Walgreens each taking home an award for their significant contributions to product information exchange initiatives and the 1WorldSync community.

As the Diamond Sponsor of GS1 Connect 2015, which was co-located with 1WorldSync Annual User Group, Americas, 1WorldSync enjoyed an array of opportunities to continue to build upon the Be Efficient. Be Compliant. Be Transparent. theme. 1WorldSync CEO, Nihat Arkan, introduced the Wednesday keynote speaker to the GS1 Connect audience and 1WorldSync was the primary sponsor of the Wednesday night networking event, GS1 Connect on Rainey Street. Attendees to the 1WorldSync booth experienced the product information journey in the digital world, attended informative Major Release 3 1:1 sessions and engaged with leading recipients Target Corporation, The Kroger Company, Sam’s Club, SuperValu and Walmart.

New for 2015, 1WorldSync launched the 1WorldSync Events App which brought 1WorldSync and customer collateral, as well as dynamic community engagement right into the hands of attendees. The overwhelmingly positive feedback has ensured that 1WorldSync Annual User Group, Europe attendees will enjoy a similar digital experience. All in all, the week was a great success and we are excited to extend that success to 1WorldSync Annual User Group, Europe in September!

Identifying the Barcode gets Easier!

Today when communicating the Barcode (many times referred to as the UPC or EAN) as part of the information about a product, the type of bar code must also be specified:

Confusion may result on how to properly identify the Barcode.

With the upcoming GDSN Major Release, the EAN.UCC identification attribute gets easier!  A simple identification of whether the UPC/EAN is 14, 13, 12, or 8 digit GTIN needs only to be supplied:

Easier?  We hope so!
