GS1 Australia completes data pool migration

GS1 Australia has successfully migrated close to 2,000 GS1net user organisations and almost one million product catalogues from the existing GS1net data pool to the new GS1 Australia National Product Catalogue platform.

The National Product Catalogue (formerly GS1net) is a data synchronisation solution that can help businesses enter, validate, store, maintain and exchange standardised supply-chain data, including product details, pricing and marketing-related information, with their trading partners.

“This new data synchronisation solution will take the National Product Catalogue user community well into the future, providing suppliers and data recipients with greater functionality and improved usability,” GS1 Australia CEO Maria Palazzolo said.

The team responsible for this multi-year project also listened to user feedback from the former GS1net community and has incorporated many enhancements and streamlined features into the new platform.

GS1 Australia says there has been positive uptake of the National Product Catalogue and strong endorsement from key players across multiple industries. It is claimed to be now one of the world’s largest global data synchronisation network (GDSN) data pools, supporting sectors including food and grocery, liquor, healthcare, hardware, transport and logistics, general merchandise and government.

“One of the key strategies in our project was to ensure a new platform was delivered, with minimal or no impact to the existing user base, many of whom are integrated using middleware software solutions,” said General Manager Data Services John Hearn, who heads the team responsible for the new platform development.

The new platform is now live and fully compliant with the GDSN, which comprises 33 active data pools, 36,700 trading partners and 28.6 million registered items.
