What Problems Does the GDSN Solve?

The GDSN connects trading partners to a trusted and continuously synchronized product information source. These established connections allow product information, including changes, to move freely.

The GDSN is designed to make the process for defining and mapping requirements straightforward. While all industries benefit from this GS1 Global standard, highly regulated industries, such as food and healthcare, find it especially beneficial.

The GDSN design for its network of interconnected data pools reduces the need for manual processes for moving data. This process also reduces errors and decreases the time needed to take product information to market.
