GS1 in Retail
The product data journey: digitalisation and standardisation
GS1 has a long history in retail—and the ubiquitous “beep” of the GS1 barcode is heard at store checkouts over 6 billion times every day. Business need to ensure however, that the products they sell are as well represented in the digital world, as they are in the physical world.
This is why GS1 is partnering with the retail industry to build a stronger product data foundation, based on unique product identity. This enables a steady, reliable flow of information, and transparency in operations between retailers and brand owners.
We can only talk about a real customer experience when she has access to all product information... and this information is presented in a standardised way for each product.
