GXS’s Melanie Nuce will Join a Panel of Industry Experts to Discuss the Benefits of Creating a Global Standard for Consumer Friendly Product Classification

GXS, a leading provider of B2B integration services, today announced that Director of Retail Industry Marketing Melanie Nuce will present alongside retail industry thought leaders from @WalmartLabs, eBay and GS1 US at the National Retail Federation’s “BIG Show” 2013. The panel will discuss the importance of data standards for omnichannel retailing. The session will be held on January 14, 2013 at 2:00 pm at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City.

Retailers and manufacturers have struggled to consistently and easily identify data across the business to business community, and the problem has now spread to tech-savvy shoppers. Whether they are online or on mobile devices, creating a positive consumer experience begins with providing quick and easy access to comprehensive product information.

This session, “Lost in a Turbulent Sea of Data: Solving the Consumer Search and Discovery Dilemma,” brings together industry leaders to discuss the growing cross-industry effort to create a transformational standard that can release the true power of omnichannel retailing. Panelists will show early examples of the new approach and provide insight into how the retail industry can simplify omnichannel commerce for everyone by replacing multiple proprietary systems with a standardized solution.
