Staresinic notes that home improvement retailers, such as Ace Hardware Corp. and Lowe`s Home Improvement Centers, are also beginning to bring their industry under UCCnet`s web-based data integration and synchronization services, which help assure that trading partners use the same product codes and definitions to reduce costly errors in business documents and expedite the flow of goods.

 

"We`re getting beyond the early adopters," he says. UCCnet works with Commerce One Inc. and other technology companies to help retailers and their trading partners synchronize their product data.
