The Data Council Announces IX-ONE Content-Rich QR Code-based ELI Codes® through its Partnership with Cornerstone Consulting.
ELI Technology’s® patented QR Code platform provides users with access to rich product content directly from the IX-ONE Exchange.
August 22, 2019, Jacksonville, FL – The Data Council (TDC) is excited to announce its partnership with Cornerstone Consulting, Inc. to provide content rich, QR Code-based ELI Codes® for all member items captured within the IX-ONE exchange.
ELI Codes® are enhanced QR Codes, built on a patented technology platform that is highly configurable, responsive, and easy to use. Each member-based item captured within the IX-ONE network will be issued an ELI Code® which will be stored within the IX-ONE platform. Supplier, broker, retailer, and distributor members will be able to download the ELI Codes® and use them to easily, effectively, and accurately communicate product content. As product information is updated within IX-ONE, it will automatically be updated within the ELI® network – ensuring ELI Codes® are always up-to-date.
IX-ONE members now have the added value and use of these ELI Codes® included with their membership at no additional cost. Suppliers will also have options to enhance their ELI Codes® with additional content such as videos.
“We are very pleased to offer this exciting and innovative value-added service for our members at no additional cost or effort to them,” says Troy Benscoter, The Data Council’s EVP of Business Development. “IX-ONE is the industry’s leading solution for product data and images and ELI Technology® is the leader in QR-Code based product content and marketing solutions. Working together will be very synergistic to us and extremely valuable to our members.”
“As the clear leader in the space, The Data Council’s IX-ONE has revolutionized product content capture and sharing,” added, David Boos, President of Cornerstone Consulting. “Through our partnership with The Data Council to deliver our innovative ELI Codes® for their member-items, we will be helping to enhance their product content initiatives while offering a tremendous benefit to their members.”
Both The Data Council and Cornerstone Consulting will be attending New Hope’s Natural Products Expo East, September 11-14 in Baltimore MD, to meet with IX-ONE members and formally introduce this service.
