Data Formats

The Open 3P data standard has been designed to facilitate seamless data exchange both within and between organisations. While the standard supports various file formats, including text files, CSV, and popular spreadsheet applications like Microsoft Excel, Apple Numbers, or Open Office, it’s important to note that leveraging the standard solely through these formats might not fully harness its potential within the dynamic packaging value chain.

Given the intricacies of the packaging value chain, the optimal utilisation of the standard is achieved when it is integrated into a software solution, such as a web, desktop, or mobile application. By incorporating the standard into a dedicated software solution, organisations can unlock its complete functionality and realise its maximum benefits. Such an approach enables efficient data management, enhances collaboration, and streamlines processes across the entire value chain.

By embracing the Open 3P data standard through a software solution, organisations can harness its power to drive innovation, improve data accuracy, and ensure seamless interoperability among stakeholders. This approach will enable the packaging industry to overcome challenges, make informed decisions, and pave the way for a more sustainable and efficient future.
