Integrations that drive success

Partnerships are built on trust and grow through collaboration. That’s why we take every precaution to ensure our shared data is 100% secure – and focus on shared processes that keep our businesses running smoothly. Our secure electronic data systems benefit us both through fast process cycle times, less paperwork, reduced data errors, cost efficiency and increased compliance.

Collaboration in action

Let’s get down to the details of how we approach data transfers.

Our preferred set-up involves data transfers via the EDI standard using the AS2 file transfer protocol, either through a direct connection or our primary VANx IBM Sterling. We also have Managed File Transfer capabilities using SFTP for XML, flatfile or other data formats.

General Mills is an active participant in the GS1 Global Data Synchronization Network (GDSN). Our General Mills EDI analysts and mappers are assigned by function and/or geography to work directly with you to define, build, test and maintain data document integrations.
