Sterling, VA — July 19, 2016 — EnterWorks, the leading software provider for master data management (MDM) and product information management (PIM) solutions, today announced that it received certification on MjR3 from 1WorldSync. The certification will expand functionality for existing EnterWorks customers already connected to GDSN and offer new users the most advanced bi-directional data publishing and synchronization tools available.
As part of the certification, EnterWorks and 1WorldSync, the leading global multi-enterprise product information network, have partnered to help manufacturers, distributors and retailers efficiently synchronize their data with GDSN. EnterWorks launched the partnership by sponsoring 1WorldSync’s 2016 Annual User Group, Americas Luncheon held during the GS1 Connect conference in Washington, DC.
“1WorldSync’s solutions and services empower companies to share product information worldwide within the industry as well as with customers,” said John Jones, VP of product delivery at EnterWorks. “Through our MjR3 certification and partnership with 1WorldSync, EnterWorks will be accelerating our penetration of the market with the highest quality MDM solutions for our customers.”
GS1 standards use a unique set of identification numbers for products, companies, locations, services, assets, logistics units and customers at any point in the supply chain. These standards enable trading partners to synchronize, despite language or geographic barriers. The MjR3 certification further provides customers with access to more efficient product information sharing tools, resulting in reduced costs, time and data errors.
“Through the partnership with EnterWorks, we will bring our customers advanced PIM / MDM solutions that help manage and transform product information into persuasive content,” explained Dan Wilkinson, chief commercial officer at 1WorldSync. “EnterWorks will enable our customers to more efficiently synchronize data via GDSN and drive higher sales and competitive strengths.”
“We have made a major investment in Europe recently that puts us in six additional countries, with a concentration in food and consumer packaged goods (CPG) in addition to the other verticals where we have a significant presence,” said Rick Chavie, CEO at EnterWorks. “The partnership with 1WorldSync enhances our customers’ and global trading partners’ access to richer, trusted product information that is essential for brand integrity, especially in CPG. This new release is also important for GDSN regulatory compliance, increases speed to market and supports industry-specific functionality.”
