Whether you’re selling your products in store or online, you’ll need a specific number to identify your product. This is a Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) – the number you see under a barcode – also known as an EAN or UPC.
Companies in technical industries face many similar challenges such as cost pressures, counterfeiting and the race to digitise their physical worlds. Optimising the supply chain and life cycle management are key processes to resolve these.
GS1 Standards for identifying, capturing and sharing information about things (products, parts, components and assets), business locations, documents and more, enable these industries to achieve true supply chain visibility and life cycle management.
This sector also focuses on relevant and pivotal industry activities and business processes such as:
Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT or Industry 4.0), innovation in automation
Globally unique serialisation & Direct Parts Marking
Maintenance and Repair Operations (MRO)
GS1 standards drive interoperability within this sector, leading to greater efficiency and lower costs.
