Introducing GS1 US Mobile Scan

GS1 US Mobile Scan takes the barcode and the power of product identification to a whole new level.

GS1 US Mobile Scan™ represents a transformational change of business, enhancing the customer experience in an increasingly technology-centric marketplace. It improves the speed of checkout and puts accurate product information at consumer's fingertips. GS1 US Mobile Scan-enabled packages have a DWCode, a nearly invisible digital watermark that can be read by enabled POS scanning systems and smartphones.

This technology creates opportunities never before imagined when scanning products and provides significant benefits to retailers, brand owners, and consumers alike. The GS1 US Mobile Scan solution is a collaboration between GS1 US® and Digimarc, a pioneering technology company.

Already have a Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) for your product?
For all the benefits it delivers, it is remarkably easy to use GS1 US Mobile Scan. If you have products already identified by GTIN®, you are well on your way. Through the DWCode portal, you can take the GTINs you have and add the additional product descriptive information (attributes) that are required. After you enable your GTIN to have a DWCode, you are ready to use your GTIN as you do today, plus reach consumers in a new, engaging way.
