Deal Promises to Put Trading Partners in Sync with Each Other
By George Anderson
Last week’s announcement that UCCnet and Transora have agreed to form a single organization promises to help retailers and their trading partners achieve the benefits of data synchronization.
The new organization will operate as a division of the Uniform Code Council (UCC) after the board of directors for Transora and the UCC formally approve the deal.
Michael Di Yeso, president and COO of the UCC said in a released statement, “Data synchronization is really just the start of better e-commerce. Companies that are synchronizing their data today will be able to more quickly realize the benefits of emerging technologies, such as the Electronic Product Code (EPC), as widespread implementations occur.”
Bob Noe, the current chief executive of Transora, has been named to head the new organization. “By joining forces we would make it even easier for retailers and manufacturers to establish a common approach for data synchronization that benefits all parties.”
