Perkins Moves Ahead on GS1 Implementation

TAUNTON, MA (September 19, 2011 – PRWEB)—Top 50 broadline distributor Perkins is now receiving electronic product data from its suppliers via 1SYNC’s data pool through their customized SpecPage product catalog. 1SYNC is the world’s largest data pool and SpecPage is a comprehensive resource for product marketing information in the foodservice and jan/san industries.

Perkins recognized the need to access more complete, accurate data through the 1SYNC/SpecPage partnership in order to provide its customers with the most robust, up-to-date product information available and drive inefficiencies and related costs out of its own operations. In addition, because the data standards and global data synchronization process adhere to voluntary standards recommended by the Foodservice GS1 U.S. Standards Initiative, Perkins reduces the burden and related costs on its suppliers to provide data in varying formats to its customers.

“The winning combination of SpecPage and 1SYNC has helped Perkins to bring the industry’s most complete and accurate GS1 data source to our customers, our purchasing team and our operations team,” said Larry Perkins, president of Perkins.
