One of the main value adds we bring to our customers is the ability to provide our community with collaborative platforms for open engagement and industry alignment. 1WorldSync Annual User Groups ensures opportunity for community engagement and encourages user-led information sharing.
Driven by 1WorldSync experts coupled with leadership and guidance from our valued customers, 1WorldSync has a series of usergroups to capture the community needs and develop roadmaps towards industry betterment.
During the week of May 31- June 3, 1WorldSync held its Annual User Group, Americas and Joint Industry Council meetings in co-location with GS1 Connect in Washington DC. This event and all associated activities and workshops were very well organized and ushered remarkable customer attendance from the US/Canada to Germany, UK and Japan. Having such a diverse community, along with GDSN’s post Major Release 3 excitement, initiated very interesting discussions around today’s demand for omni-channel requirements and product content management.
I received many positive comments around 1WorldSync’s User Group workshops where many of our customers (Sam’s Club and The Kroger Co. to Target and Kellogg’s) shared their experiences, opportunities and best practices. I was particularly pleased to see how well 1WorldSync customers eCommerce content acquisition strategy is aligned with 1WorldSync’s omni-channel strategy (linking GDSN to Digital Commerce requirements).
As a global organization, 1WorldSync hosts various community activities throughout the year. In fact, building on the momentum and success of 1WorldSync Annual User Group, Americas, we are in the final planning stages of 1WorldSync Annual User Group, Europe scheduled for September 19 – 20 in Berlin, Germany.
This is 1WorldSync’s largest event in Europe with over 200 community members from CPG, Retail, Foodservice, Healthcare and DIY industries discussing strategies on Data Quality, Supply Chain Enablement, Transparency, Compliance and Omni-Channel Commerce.
We will keep you fully engaged and informed on all our community events and will continue to invest in global community enablement and engagement. In the meantime, I would like to thank 1WorldSync customers and partners for openly sharing their experiences and insight with the community. We all look forward to seeing you soon at our upcoming European event.
