ECRS Ecosystem – Universal Product Database
ECRS Ecosystem™, included at no extra charge for ECRS Gateway™ subscribers, enables a secure network of sharing among retailers and their trusted suppliers. It creates a real community made up of hundreds of retailers freely exchanging data with the most advanced suppliers throughout North America.
Shared Universal Product Database
To further enhance and grow our independent community vision, ECRS is making our next bold move. This initiative is designed to interconnect ECRS Gateway retailers, so they can effortlessly share item level data with one another. As a first step, the new Universal Product Database (UPD), which is hosted by ECRS Gateway, will allow ECRS Gateway retailers to quickly add new item records with Health Attributes, Brand, Item Image, Size, Receipt Alias and Suggested Retail Price. The user simply inputs the Item ID (Barcode) and these fields will automatically be populated. Web Office’s blazing fast multi-select function also works with this feature, allowing you to quickly match the UPD against your own item database, automatically updating the selected field, such as Health Attributes, with every record that is matched within the UPD. In the true spirit of sharing, if you use this new Gateway feature, you also agree to allow Gateway to learn these same settings in your item file, and once vetted by ECRS, placed within the UPD to be shared by other retailers. This means, when you set a specific health attribute manually, Gateway will pull this information, and it could be used by ECRS to update the UPD.
We will never use your information without your knowledge
Don’t worry, you must agree to be part of this shared community. ECRS will never share your data without your permission. Your security and privacy is important us.
