Global Data Synchronization (GDSN) via data pools such as 1WorldSync, TrueSource & NPC / DHBNC is now a standard process of exchanging product and price information between buyers and suppliers.  This process allows companies to use the GDSN standards for data sync to 'talk a common language' and provide a more efficient, accurate process to ensure that product catalogs are aligned.
