What is DataSync.ie?

Trading partners across the globe have multiple databases filled with information about the products they make, sell, or buy.

To enable efficient trading practices, this data needs to be accurate, secure and shared in a streamlined manner. Without this, difficulties occur when a company needs to change, update or add information in its database; suddenly the “catalogue” that trading partners have isn’t up-to-date anymore. That’s where DataSync.ie can help.


DataSync.ie is a GS1 members' service for manufacturers, suppliers, distributors, wholesalers and product data users such as retailers and healthcare providers active in the Irish marketplace. DataSync.ie gives you the tools to easily manage accurate and trusted product data that complies with GS1 industry standards. DataSync.ieis the Irish National Data Pool Service.

DataSync.ie is a certified data pool and is your route into GDSN. This allows you to enter your product data once and publish it securely to all your selected trading partners. Managing and entering the same product data in different formats, for multiple trading partners is an unnecessary overhead. It leads to errors and additional costs in warehousing, delivery, merchandising and other commercial processes.

DataSync.ie addresses the issues of product information management by providing a secure data warehouse where data is validated, exchanged and classified in a streamlined manner.

The service ensures that local and international trading partners always have the same information in their systems and any changes made to a supplier’s database will be automatically sent to all other trading partners. When a supplier and a customer know they are looking at the same accurate and up-to-date data, it is smoother, quicker and less expensive for them to do business together.

Synchronising accurate, properly classified data also results in:

  • Improved accuracy of orders
  • Fewer forms to fill out
  • Fewer duplicate systems and processes
  • Most importantly, it provides a proven way to drive unnecessary costs out of the supply chain.
