Dairy Queen System Selects iTradeNetwork to Help Drive Adoption and Implementation of GDSN Standards

Unified Supply Chain, Inc., Subsidiary for International Dairy Queen, Inc. Selects iTradeNetwork GDSN Data Pool

PLEASANTON, CA--(Marketwired - Jun 9, 2014) - iTradeNetwork, Inc. today announced that Unified Supply Chain, Inc. (USCI), the supply chain subsidiary of International Dairy Queen, Inc. (IDQ) has agreed to adopt GS1 GDSN data standards and utilize iTradeNetwork's Certified GDSN Data Pool to share accurate and timely product information across their U.S. supply chain. This announcement represents another major advance forward for the global adoption of GDSN data standards for improving the efficiency and visibility of supply and demand chains globally.

GS1 is an international not-for-profit association with member organizations in over 100 countries, dedicated to the design and implementation of global supply chain standards and solutions. One of GS1's important standards efforts is the Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN), which provides a standardized way for organizations to share data with suppliers. It is increasingly being adopted across the food and beverage industry because it helps to drive down supply chain costs by improving order accuracy, reducing invoice errors and eliminating duplicate processes; while also building consumer and trading partner trust.

iTradeNetwork fully supports GS1 and GDSN standards and actively participates in GS1 Global and U.S. standards maintenance and working groups. In addition to its Certified GDSN Data Pool, the company has closely integrated GDSN into its collaborative supply chain solutions. This allows organizations to quickly and easily send and receive GS1-compliant product information across a global network and leverage that product information in key business processes, such as order-to-pay. iTradeNetwork's GDSN Data Pool interoperates with all other GS1 GDSN Certified Data Pools across the globe to further ensure data consistency and accuracy.

"Synchronized data has always been the backbone of iTradeNetwork's collaborative supply chain solutions," said Joe Bergera, group vice president of Roper Industries and president of iTradeNetwork, a Roper subsidiary. "We are fully committed to GS1 standards, including GDSN, and will continue to work closely with IDQ and our other customers across the food and beverage industry to implement these standards in order to improve accuracy and efficiencies across their supply chains."
