EWING, NJ – APRIL 24, 2023 – GS1 US today announced that it has launched GS1 US Data Hub product information on Snowflake Marketplace, enabling joint customers access to a local U.S. online repository of nearly 45 million product records created by brand owners.
The joint effort between GS1 US and Snowflake, the Data Cloud company, helps inform business decisions, optimize supply chains and drive innovations by eliminating the need to manually validate product information across platforms via search results or complex spreadsheets. GS1 US Data Hub capability will allow users to use and verify data through Snowflake’s single, integrated platform, which allows joint customers to bring the benefits of GS1 US directly to their operational data.
“Launching the GS1 US Data Hub product information on Snowflake Marketplace will offer our joint customers access to trusted content at the exact point of need and deliver increased business efficiencies,” said Melanie Nuce-Hilton, senior vice president, innovation & partnerships, GS1 US. “Because the product data on Snowflake Marketplace is always current, validated by brands and convenient to access, users can increase the accuracy of the product data they use for their transaction platforms and analytics, which improves their end customer’s experience with quality product data.”
“Retailers often struggle to streamline their item setup process and need a way to verify product information in their item catalog,” said Rosemary DeAragon, global head of industry, retail & CPG at Snowflake. “Our collaboration with an organization like GS1 US gives retailers a modern approach in Snowflake’s Data Cloud to verify UPC codes and enable authentic products to quickly move from a warehouse to store shelves. This is a win for both retailers and their brand partners.”
Snowflake Marketplace is powered by Snowflake’s groundbreaking cross-cloud technology, Snowgrid, allowing companies direct access to raw data products and the ability to leverage data, data services and applications quickly, securely and cost-effectively.
