BookNet Canada Launches GDSN Pilot for North American Publishers
BookNet Canada is beginning a new pilot project, BNC DataSync, to test the possibilities of Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN) information sharing for Canadian and U.S. publishers and general retailers. GDSN allows manufacturers and retailers to share timely product information through a global network of linked databases. It is a model with significant momentum in grocery, pharmaceutical, and consumer packaged goods sectors.
BNC DataSync allows publishers to submit ONIX files, the book industry standard for data sharing, which are converted into the GDSN data format and submitted to the global network. This allows publishers to participate in GDSN with no additional development costs.
BookNet Canada is now recruiting the first group of publishers who will be able to upload and share data at no cost during the year-long beta period.
