Good Business Requires Great Data

An intuitive product data loading and management tool that goes beyond simple data management, ProSYNC provides a higher level of data quality through standardized mandatory attributes directed by industry and system validations to meet Canadian trading partner and regulatory requirements. And, the ability to perpetually cleanse and update your data ensures your trading partners always have access to the most accurate and up-to-date product listing data. A version of ProSYNC for Brokers and Distributors is also available.

ProSYNC Business Benefits

  • Speed to Market
    • Validated, bilingual product data can be shared with multiple trading partners within minutes. You can publish your data to all trading partners on the system, providing access to your most up-to-date data and enabling trading partners to receive automated updates when you make changes to your product data.
    • Specific trading partner listing forms enable you to easily provide any additional data required by individual trading partners, helping to streamline the product listing process.
  • Data Quality
    • Data excellence processes and mandatory, industry-directed global standard attributes help ensure your product data meets Canadian trading partner and regulatory requirements.
    • Your data is easily managed and updated in one place to ensure trading partners always have access to your most accurate, perpetually cleansed and updated data.
  • Operational Efficiency
    • Optimize your resources and save time by eliminating time-consuming and error-prone, duplicated work. An efficient one-to-many capability enables you to load and manage your product data in one place and share with multiple trading partners at the same time from a primary source of truth.

Three ProSYNC options are available based on your business needs, including support for manual product entry as well as import functionality for one or more products directly from ERP systems, decreasing the time spent loading and managing data. Pick the one that's right for you.
