The Why

In keeping with our goal of offering the highest level of service for customers, FSenet+ has released landing pages for recipients’ customers. Landing pages are a convenient, 24/7, resource for suppliers that need to understand who to contact and how, what the goals of a recipient’s GDSN initiative are, and where to find important documents and timelines. This is of great value to customers on the receiving end of data submissions as it relieves administrative work on their data standards team by answering common questions up-front.
