1WorldSync is proud to announce that all of our applications are now fully Major Release 3 compatible and global data synchronization has resumed. The time, effort, preparation and cups of coffee paid off!
As a part of our #AskMjR3 video series, we have been identifying and answering some of the most Frequently Asked Questions posed by our user community regarding Major Release 3.
To help you prepare for Major Release 3, 1WorldSync has made a lot of reference material available, including a Major Release 3 Checklist. This Checklist is a free tool you can use to help you navigate the MjR3 documentation and make sure you are on track with Major Release 3.
When a product is composed of multiple sub-units, we call those sub-units “components.” Products with components may contain various pieces to a set, like a table and chairs – or may be a multipack of different elements, like a box of multi-flavored yogurt with different ingredients. With the changes introduced with Major Release 3, information such as ingredients, nutritional information or requirements for each component of a GTIN can be provided using a standard format.
1WorldSync remains committed to the GDSN standards and will support the upcoming GDSN release, Major Release 3. With this release, GDSN will be better enabled to more quickly implement new requests into the standard. There are also many enhancements to existing attribute sets, including nutrients, ingredients, allergens, tax, hazardous materials, promotional, packaging and many others.
