GS1 Mexico provides a GDSN solution as a web-based service for its trading partners called Syncfonía. With the rollout of GDSN Major Release 3, the current version of Syncfonía needed an upgrade in order to aligned with the global strategy as well as continue to meet the evolving needs of GS1 Mexico’s local market and end consumer.
Trading partners working with GS1 Mexico have seen the value of GDSN in their business processes and operations. Before Syncfonía, the data interchange between trading partners in Mexico was a long, frustrating process where manufacturers uploaded data from one single product many times, in many different formats, for every single retailer.
This pre-GDSN experience is just one of the reasons trading partners have decided to jump in and support GS1 Mexico in their migration to GDSN Major Release 3.
