The retail shopping experience has changed! Consumers want “an always-on, always open” omni-channel experience, where online and brick-and-mortar sales converge to provide a seamless shopping experience. It’s more important than ever for the Retail Sector to enable supply chain visibility from the source to the consumer and ensure that the right product gets to the right place, at the right time. In business, you can’t afford to stop learning. GS1 Connect 2015 provides you with opportunity to learn from peers, trading partners and standards experts about how to enable a seamless omni-channel consumer experience and deliver on the “always on, always open” consumer promise by leveraging GS1 Standards.
INNOVATE. COLLABORATE. TRANSFORM.
Business demands and resource constraints often drive the need to examine problems from fresh perspectives. When you address a supply chain or business process challenge in a new way leveraging GS1 Standards, you become an innovator. As you share your learnings with your peers and discuss the implementation implications with your trading partners, you bring collaboration into the process that is so critical to transforming entire industries. This is what GS1 Connect is all about. See what the Retail Track has to offer in Austin in 2015.
