Nisa-Today’s has enhanced its supply chain infrastructure with the take-up of UDEX Product Data (PDQ) services, in a move it says will significantly reduce costs for its members and suppliers.’
UDEX’s PDQ services are supported by the UK’s leading retailers, and have been used to ‘clean’ essential supply chain data for over 250,000 products. Udex PDQ services have been exclusively selected to provide data cleaning for the GS1 UK Data Pool – an industry-wide central repository of supplier product data.
The UDEX service will facilitate the adoption of the standard classification system for all product data. This, says Nisa-Today’s, will improve consistency of product and package data to every party in the supply chain, improving data quality and helping to reduce operating costs for the group’s retail and wholesale members and its suppliers.
Steve Collins, trading director for Nisa-Today’s, commented, “The integrity of product data is essential to the efficiency of our business. In order to maintain our position as the leading distributor in the independent retailing sector, we are continually assessing and developing our offer from supplier to shopper.
“The UDEX system is an important element in this perpetual advancement and our commitment to providing our members with the sophistication of a multiple operator – which is vitally important as our sector defends itself against multiple invasion.”
Ira Zalesin, group chief executive officer at UDEX, said:
“Nisa-Today’s can now enhance its supply chain expertise for its members, allowing extended data sharing, even faster response rates to market changes and further improved product availability for its members and their customers.
“By providing a single point of entry for product information used by all subscribing retailers, the UDEX solution will lead to greater accuracy of information across the entire supply chain and a positive impact on financial returns for all.”
