Are you looking to further your knowledge and acquire additional information on barcodes? Do you need clarification on which barcodes will suit your specific business desires?

This webinar will start with an understanding of the GS1 Company Prefix in order to build GTINs. You’ll also get a technical overview of the EAN/UPC, ITF-14, GS1-128, GS1 DataBar, GS1 DataMatrix, GS1 QR Code, and GS1 Composite Code symbologies. Plus, you’ll have the opportunity to ask the webinar leader questions specific to your business.

FREEThe Global Data Synchronization Network™ (GDSN®) enables the sharing of up-to-date data and information among trading partners. With the GDSN, any changes made to one company’s database are automatically and immediately sent to all of the other companies to whom the item information is published. The GDSN ensures all trading partners have access to the same, accurate information.
This webinar will start with an introduction to the GDSN. By attending, you’ll gain an understanding of how data synchronization works. You’ll also hear about the benefits of GDSN and how you can get your company on board. Plus, you’ll have an opportunity to ask the webinar leader questions specific to your business.

$425.00Accurate data is an essential component of a visible, secure, and sustainable supply chain. Industry studies have shown that two-thirds of product information shared between trading partners has data accuracy errors. By attending, you will receive information and guidance on interpreting and applying the GS1 Package Measurement Rules for both consumer and non-consumer trade items, which form the foundation for accuracy of physical dimensional data (i.e., weights and dimensions).
You'll also gain an understanding of the GTIN Allocation Rules, which form the basis on whether or not a new GTIN needs to be assigned based on changes to an existing product, promotion, or new product introduction. An understanding of the rules is a "must have" for those that manage GTIN assignment to ensure that any scanned barcode can be associated with accurate, up to date, data.
