Stockholm, Sweden, February 29, 2024 – Vaimo, an Akeneo Diamond Solution Partner, now offers the Akeneo community a direct way to plug into the GDSN network and send and receive information from other GS1 members. The GS1 connector is built on Vaimo’s Connectmach microservice framework and offers increased efficiency at a low cost.

The origins of the GS1 standard go back to the 1950s when the grocery industry in the United States faced challenges in managing inventory and conducting efficient transactions. GS1 is heavily associated with the barcodes that play a key role in supply chains, enabling parties like retailers, manufacturers, transport providers, and hospitals to automatically identify and track products as they move through the supply chain.

Today, GS1 operates in over 100 countries, with millions of member companies across various industries. Its standards connect buyers and sellers, enabling seamless communication and collaboration among trading partners worldwide.

“The GS1 standard is becoming more and more relevant for our clients and therefore, we are excited to launch this microservice to help our clients automate their processes. Today, our clients connect to the GDSN network manually, and we know that this is time-consuming. The GS1 connector will save many hours of manual labor from day one,” says Tommy Essenholm, Head of Sales & Business Development, PIM at Vaimo.

By adopting GS1 standards, companies position themselves at the forefront of a connected and collaborative ecosystem where more accurate data can be shared with less effort.

The GS1 connector will be launched at the Akeneo marketplace, but early details are available upon pre-registration. Register below, and find more information here:
