With its marketplace PBSeasy®, PBS Network connects manufacturers in the paper, office supplies and stationery industry to GDSN via b-synced – LEITZ ACCO Brands and Schneider Novus will be using the master data pool of Bayard Consulting Group
PBS Network and Bayard Consulting have formed a partnership. As part of their cooperation, the 150 suppliers of paper, office and stationery products currently connected to the marketplace will enjoy an additional option how to make their product master data available to retailers, in an uncomplicated and cost-effective manner, via GDSN data pool b-synced.
Among the first companies to use b-synced via PBSeasy® to connect to the Global Data Synchronisation Network (GDSN) are two of the top players in the industry: LEITZ ACCO Brands and Schneider Novus. PBS Network expects that numerous other suppliers in the industry will soon take advantage of the offer and provide their product master data to major retail companies via b-synced.
Martin Kleinert, Head of Sales at PBS Network GmbH, is pleased about the cooperation: "With Bayard Consulting Group, we have found a reliable partner who helps our members in a very flexible, fast and uncomplicated way to meet challenges resulting from master data connections to large retailers."
Björn Bayard, CEO of Bayard Consulting Group, adds: "We are very happy to have gained another competent partner in PBS Network. Together, we can assist companies in the paper, office supplies and stationery industry in connecting their master data efficiently and in high quality to retailers."
PBS Network was founded in 1996 by four leading German suppliers of the paper, office supplies and stationery industry as a central service provider to enable efficient and high-quality electronic data exchange with retailers. Today, 150 manufacturers in the industry throughout Europe exchange their business data with 2600 companies from the specialist retail trade as well as large retail groups via PBS Network. For smaller retailers, PBS Network offers an online shop enabling them to order directly from manufacturers. PBS Network has since become active beyond the borders of Germany in other European countries. In addition to the four founding members Baier & Schneider, edding, LEITZ ACCO Brands and Zweckform, the shareholders of PBS Network are the Soennecken cooperative representing the specialist retailers and ARGE PBS e.V. (Working Group for the Promotion of New Media in the Stationery Industry) acting as the manufacturers' representative body.
