Ask the Experts Webinar: GTIN Basics
FREE
Now that you have a Company Prefix, you may be wondering how to get started identifying your products and labeling them with barcodes. Before you can generate the barcode, the identification number—in this case a GTIN—needs to be assigned. GTIN stands for Global Trade Item Number. A GTIN uniquely identifies your trade items in the supply chain. A trade item is any product that is bought or sold. It can be anything that you put on a shelf in a store, list in your catalog, or create an invoice for. This webinar starts with a brief overview of the GTIN. By attending, you'll learn about GTIN structure, how to build a product hierarchy, and GTIN assignment.

NRF 2015
10:30-11:30 AM, Room 1E7-10 in the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center
New York, NY

GS1 US and a Panel of Industry Leaders will host a roundtable discussion on “Monetizing Consumer Demand with Predictive Analytics and Real Time Inventory Visibility.”  As omni-channel retail becomes a force that cannot be ignored, consumers are increasingly sharing their valuable “individualized” opinions and purchasing habits via social media, product reviews, and online visits/purchases. Top retailers and brands will discuss their experiences in creating more efficient, agile supply chains using GS1 Standards, which provide the foundation for identifying, capturing and sharing product data and enable the real-time visibility needed to tap into these rich information sources and effectively leverage more customer-centric strategies. Attendees will walk away with a better understanding of how retailers and brands are using predictive analytics to gain deeper insight into customer behaviors, consumer trends and the forces of loyalty and purchase—to help them make more informed business and supply chain decisions.
