We were being pushed by the retailers - Lowes, Depot, to go to UCC NET. Long 
story short we obtained a solution provider, TR2 and put in a person to collect 
the data. Since we have limited customers and at best a couple hundred items 
this was not a huge labor issue. Our users really drove this project.

The long story - In our sector - Hardlines - they really are just starting to 
use UCC Net and, in my opinion, are not exploiting the whole idea.

With that in mind, our business was not ready to "revolutionize" our item 
master input. I'd say we are above average in our item master origination with 
controls on content (we don't allow shipping and invoicing of incomplete 
items). 

Not ready to shock our culture again and not seeing a huge payback, we took the 
tact of satisfying the customers needs and more or less substituted our UPC for 
the GTIN. All other elements were available in our ERP system with some minor 
data collection. We put a person in place to gather the info and reek it (ok, 
cut and paste) into a spreadsheet.

I was involved on the front end as a representative from our IT department - I 
have to say our users really were the ones who ran the project - the selected 
the vendor and really took to the method of entry and the method to submit them 
for review. I probably spent a couple days here and our user department really 
took the ball and ran with this.
