A Single Source of Truth
Most retailers require GDSN data from their suppliers, which comes with very strict standardization rules and regulations.
As if that weren’t enough, GDSN data itself is complicated. That’s why data pools--like Edgenet--are here to help you load, manage, and send your GDSN content to your preferred endpoints. Not only do we manage your GDSN content in an expedient way, we also pride ourselves in providing responsive and knowledgeable customer support.
While most retailers require GDSN and you are able to use any GDSN data pool you prefer, not all GDSN data is created equal. Edgenet provides the most robust taxonomy out there, with 120+ GDSN publish validations, custom-created templates, and multiple formats for distribution (Excel, CSV, JSON, XML) via email or FTP.
Edgenet also takes their GDSN offering a step further by integrating with retailers like Lowe’s and AutoZone to make the product content management process more direct than ever before.
With Edgenet, you can always be sure your product content will be complete and accurate, and the process won’t be a headache.
The Only GDSN Path to Lowe’s
But, what do we really mean when we say “integrated”? It’s true that you can use any GDSN data pool to send your GDSN product content to most any retailer, but our connection with retailers goes beyond a direct connection.
Take our integrated relationship with Lowe’s, for example.
Lowe’s chose Edgenet as their preferred GDSN data pool. Through this partnership, we have fostered a strong connection with Lowe’s and their vendors. We took the time to onboard and train each of their hundreds of vendors in how to load their product content into the Edgenet platform, where it is scored and validated for accuracy in real time, and sent directly to Lowe’s. This has cut their time spent on redundant data entry, and increased their speed to market.
This integrated relationship is miles ahead of any other GDSN data pool that sends data to Lowe’s. Any product content that comes to Lowe’s must go through the Edgenet system. If your company is using another system, you’re ultimately paying extra for something that has already been so graciously sponsored by Lowe’s.
Other GDSN data pools have identified themselves as a single source of truth for sending product content to Lowe’s but make no mistake, Edgenet is the only GDSN data pool with an exclusive relationship to validate and send product content to Lowe’s.
