Industries that handle digital product information will soon be able to log into tomorrow’s Validoo with focus on time-saving and automated solutions that simplify the customers’ business and information flows.
Our customers demand speed, stability and simplicity when handling trade item information and images. Therefore, we have developed a high performing platform with modern architecture, better functionality and focus on user experience.

First launch already done
The first part of Validoo’s IT platform was rolled out in January 2019 when users of the Validoo DataEntry input system got a new and more powerful version. In the new user interface, the supplier can in a whole new way manage and review the trade item information for all levels in the supply chain. The service has received positive reviews from the users who can now create trade item information much faster than in the previous version
One modern interface – unlimited opportunities
The launch includes an upgraded version of Validoo Item and MediaStore services that help users quality assure, manage and share product information and images. With the new interface, a product databank is created that makes it easier for business partners to share information about products according to the GS1 standard which is the common business language.
We are proud and pleased to be able to offer our customers a modern service with smart, time-saving features that make information management easier than ever. In addition, the launch is just the beginning of our new venture. The plan is to continuously implement more value-adding features to our users.
