GS1 Barcode Workshop for Retail on 15 November 2019

Are you allocating the right barcode to your product? 

Usually a barcode scan at the retailer is 99% successful. However, even a 1% failure scan can cause unnecessary costs, time wastage, and negative impact to your retailer’s reputation and you as the brand owner.

Imagine your product info is not found in the point-of-sales system upon scanning barcode at your retailer’s store which could be resulted from incorrect barcode assigned to your product.

This workshop will guide you on getting your barcode right at the first time and not facing potential risks of the need to re-label all your products. 

By adhering to GS1 identification standards, all products will receive a unique barcode which is universally acceptable among all retailers in both locally and globally. 

Join us now and learn how to apply the building blocks of the GS1 Numbering System and in addition, find out how barcode can boost your retail business!
