Innovit, a leading provider of software solutions for Product Information Management (PIM) and Master Data Management (MDM), have partnered with The ECN Group as an agent in New Zealand to re-sell Innovit’s iICE solutions for GS1net and Master Data Management.
ECN Group, New Zealand’s largest B2B messaging company have selected Innovit as a partner to provide their customers with a range of ‘certified for GS1net’ middleware tools. Innovit’s iICE Validator for GS1net, has been widely used by suppliers in Australia and New Zealand as a way to more easily validate and load GS1net product catalogues.
New Zealand’s grocery, liquor, and hardware industries have recently adopted GS1net as the platform and standard to support the synchronisation of product and price catalogues with their suppliers. Over the past 12-months, retailers such as Mitre 10 and Foodstuffs have advised their suppliers that they need to load their catalogues onto GS1net and become GS1net Ready.
“We have noticed that the adoption of GS1net by companies in New Zealand has been exceptional,” said Innovit Marketing Manager Mr Robert Durrant.
“Suppliers in NZ see the challenges that are involved in building, validating and sustaining product/price catalogues on GS1net. Very quickly companies such as Steel & Tube, PZ Cussons, Colgate, Firth, and Horticom recognize how ‘certified’ middleware tools remove many of the difficulties faced when supporting the GS1 standard, as well as supporting the complex loading/publication process on GS1net.”
