HORSHAM, PA – February 8, 2017 – Reed Tech, a provider of data management solutions for the life sciences industry, and 1WorldSync, the world’s largest global content exchange network, have entered into a collaborative agreement to enable more robust product content capabilities for the medical device industry. This agreement will allow Reed Tech customers to access the Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN) and provide 1WorldSync customers with expanded options for managing their regulatory data.

“Since Reed Tech is a leader for Unique Device Identifier (UDI) regulatory filings to the FDA for medical device companies and 1WorldSync is the leading product information network, the collaboration between the two organizations makes sense,” stated Ethan Eisner, Vice President and Managing Director of Global Commercial Markets at Reed Tech. He continued, “We are excited about the addition of GDSN capabilities into our medical device data management solutions, as it permits our customers to streamline their process and meet requests they are receiving from global trading partners.”

“This collaboration will allow the medical device industry to receive expanded, customizable offerings to meet current and future challenges,” said Dan Wilkinson, Chief Commercial Officer at 1WorldSync.  “Our agreement is beneficial to customers of both companies, enabling more robust product content support to meet the continually changing mandates and regulations in healthcare.”

Reed Tech and 1WorldSync will make more details available in coming weeks. The companies will be co-promoting at GS1 Connect in Las Vegas this June.
