CHICAGO -- Transora, a provider of data synchronization solutions to the consumer products industry, today announced that the Transora Data Synchronization Network (TDSN) Data Synchronization Service 3.2 is now available and that beta testing for UCCnet's release 2.2 is well underway. Transora is the first to test this functionality with UCCnet.
The GDS vision is to establish a network where standards compliance exists and redundant services are eliminated. The functionality required to facilitate this vision is called Intelligent Routing. Intelligent Routing allows item data -- that until now had to be stored multiple times during the synchronization process -- to now pass directly from the Transora Data Synchronization Network to retailers who have subscribed to the UCCnet GLOBALregistry and SYNCengine.
The TDSN already publishes data directly to retailers and other data pools that have a direct connection to the TDSN. Beta testing partners include leaders in DSD, private label, and warehouse segments, as well as their major retail trading partners.
The TDSN Data Synchronization Service v.3.2 also provides enhanced global connectivity with direct production-level connections to Galec, a leading French retailer; UDEX; and SINFOS. This release also includes the addition of French-language support. English- and Spanish-language support are both currently available.
By enabling customers to reach new international markets through the TDSN, Transora customers can use data already loaded into the TDSN data catalog and synchronize that data with any trading partner connected to the GDS network either through a direct connection or a chosen data synchronization service provider such as UDEX or SINFOS.
For example, through the enhanced UDEX machine-to-machine interconnection, customer data loaded into the TDSN data catalog is synchronized directly to UDEX Limited and is made available to several UK retailers, including Sainsburys, Tesco, and Safeway. The SINFOS Interconnection enables Transora customers to synchronize data from the TDSN data catalog to SINFOS, where data is then made available to German retailers who subscribe to SINFOS as their recipient data pool.
With Transora's expanded global network, Transora can now reach retailers accounting for nearly one-fourth of global retail sales.
Also available in the 3.2 release is integration with Transora's CPFR application, enabling manufacturers to designate which products will be forecast through the CPFR application. These items are automatically loaded into the CPFR application for collaboration with retailers.
