GDSN 101

In order to succeed in today’s cross-channel world, brands must be able to give consumers what they want, when they want it and in the manner they demand it. If shoppers can’t find the information they are looking for, they will go elsewhere.

According to a survey of 4,000 US online adults by Forrester Research, “The No. 1 feature online shoppers want from a website is product information.”

As rich and robust product content is an integral part of the shopping experience, the availability of 1World Sync makes that far easier for customers to achieve and improve the shopping experience for consumers.

partners to globally share trusted product content. The 1WorldSync GS1 GDSN-certified data pool is the industry-leading solution for implementing data synchronization and supporting user needs over time.
