What are the Core UCCnet Services?

The GLOBALregistry is the UCCnet service that contains product and partner information. Any company can store its own product information in the registry, and there are many ways for a trading partner to enter registry information. It can be done manually at the UCCnet Web site, electronically between two computers, or through a third party, e.g., a certified UCCnet alliance partner organization working on your behalf.

The GLOBALhub is the engine that provides the processing of data to and from the GLOBALregistry. Product information is synchronized simultaneously in near-real time with any number of trading partners that subscribe to UCCnet.

In terms of standards compliance, UCCnet's foundation services validate all trading information to certify compliance with global EAN.UCC standards. This maintains the data integrity across the entire supply chain.
