1SYNC has emerged as a new U.S.-based data synchronization organization for both retailers and manufacturers, replacing the retailers’ organization UCCnet and the manufacturers’ group Transora.

1SYNC, based in Lawrenceville, N.J., will operate as a subsidiary of GS1 US, the renamed Uniform Code Council Inc., the non-profit industry organization known for forming bar code specifications and, more recently, setting standards on how retailers and manufacturers will standardize and share product data through the Internet-based Global Data Synchronization Network. GS1 US is the U.S. unit of GS1, which debuted early this year as the result of the merger of Uniform Code Council and its European counterpart, EAN International.

1SYNC will continue the work of UCCnet and Transora in serving as data pools that help companies synchronize and share information. The long-term goal is to have a global system where retailers and suppliers can share accurate and up-to-date information, providing for more accurate inventory and supply chain processes while avoiding costly errors in purchase orders and invoices.

“1SYNC will help trading partners better work together to arrive at a single data synchronization solution,” said Bob Noe, CEO of 1SYNC and the former CEO of Transora. “By combining the experiences of both companies and by collaborating with trading partners, solution partners and other GDSN data pools, we can help everyone realize value sooner and better avoid bottlenecks that result from inaccurate information that exists throughout the supply chain.”
