Content Loading Tools

ECCnet New Item Setup offers a variety of loading options to give data providers (such as manufacturers, brand owners, suppliers and distributors) flexibility while working with data recipients (such as retailers, healthcare providers, foodservice operators and other end users).


Straight-forward and easy-to-use, ProSYNC makes it quicker and easier to supply trading partners with the product information they need.

Taking global standards and adding a robust data loading and certification process, built-in data validation and discrepancy reporting tools, ProSYNC delivers a higher level of data excellence than any other loading method.

Data Excellence

  • Our commitment to data excellence ensures bilingual product data is perpetually cleansed and updated, increasing accuracy and building trust between trading partners. Processes such as brand owner certification, system validations, real-time updates and GTIN discrepancy reporting enable everyone along the supply chain to access the reliable data they need to fuel their business processes.


  • Our one-to-many approach ensures product data is loaded once, then efficiently shared with all trading partners from one place, at the same time, across multiple sectors. This removes the need to re-enter information for each new trading partner or every time you need to update your product information.

Streamline the Product Listing Process

  • Quickly and easily supply all trading partners with the information they need that meets industry requirements through pre-populated listing forms with content from GS1 Canada’s ECCnet Registry. This saves time and eliminates confusion about trading partner needs.
  • Access training on how to load content so you can do it correctly the first time, every time
  • Upload, edit, manage and save your product information before publishing. Once your product information is compliant and ready to share, you can then publish.

Meet Industry Requirements

  • Meet industry requirements with standardized content
  • Provide specific trading partner product information through top-up of content in pre-populated listing forms unique to each trading partner
  • Ensure your product information meets requirements by receiving notifications about any errors or missing information

Operational Efficiency

  • Save time and significant resources by replacing manual paperwork and processes specific to individual trading partners with one central location to load, manage and share your product information
