AFS Technologies Announces the Signing of KeyImpact Sales & Systems for GS1 Data Synchronization
PHOENIX --(Business Wire)--
KeyImpact Sales & Systems (KeyImpact), one of the largest sales agencies
in North America, selects AFS Technologies as their partner to provide
GS1 product synchronization. As announced in November 2011, the
partnership between AFS and 1SYNC will allow sales agencies,
manufacturers and distributors to leverage a highly cost-effective link
to the GS1 data pool.
AFS with 1SYNC is the largest provider of GS1 synchronization in the
consumer packaged goods (CPG) industry. In addition to providing GS1
synchronization, AFS' PROFILE® solution offers users the largest data
pool for providing nutritional, marketing and related information. The
optional Interactive Product Master (IPM) allows manufacturers to
distribute product information, including price changes to multiple
customers on a secured cloud portal.
KeyImpact will not only benefit from the vast existing manufacturer data
already residing in the 1SYNC and AFS PROFILE data pool, but
they will also benefit from the seamless integration with third party
product masters. "We are looking forward to partnering with AFS on this
important initiative so that we can improve efficiencies and service to
our clients, customers and partners," said Kathleen Mooy, CFO of
KeyImpact Sales & Systems.
"We see major companies adopting the AF PROFILE/1SYNC solution as part
of their overall GDSN and Master Data Management (MDM) strategies," said
Kurien Jacob, CEO of AFS Technologies. "The signing of KeyImpact is
further proof that the strategic partnership with 1SYNC is providing the
benefits to all key, related trading partners."
