Global Item Data Synchronization:
The next wave for Retail, Distribution and Manufacturing
Al Grega - LANSA Inc.

July 20th, 2004 FASUG Meeting

Large retailers have sent letters to their suppliers and distributors requiring them to subscribe to UCCNet (A non-for profit global hub for the synchronization of product data between trading partners). Long gone are the days when a supplier can send a retailer a catalog with all their latest offerings. The UCCNet Global Registry is acting as THE main repository for product information, packaging, identification (UPC codes), and soon pricing.

So what does a supplier or distributor do when they get one of these letters from a Wal-Mart sized retailer? They attend this meeting! This presentation will give the attendee an overview of UCCNet, how it functions, what to look for in a solution and what's next with technology like RFID and EPCglobal.
