5/22/19: Which GS1 Barcode is Right For You?

  • Date:Wednesday, May 22, 2019 from 1:00 PM - 2:30 PM (ET)

Did you know more than 5 billion barcodes are scanned every day? They are part of your everyday life, but did you realize a barcoding mistake could be costly to your business? What if the barcode you put on your product doesn’t scan? What if you choose the wrong barcode? Don’t leave this up to chance. 

It’s important to have a good understanding of the inner workings of your barcodes and appreciate the importance of your barcode and the information associated with it. That’s why attending the Which GS1 Barcode is Right For You webinar is the right move. Learn first-hand from a GS1 Standards expert and leave this webinar with the ability to barcode all your products with confidence and accuracy. 

You're going to learn:

  • How to select the correct barcode for your product
  • How to combine your UPC Company Prefix, the item reference number and a check digit into your GTIN, the basis for a barcode
  • When to use the same item reference number for cases and pallets and when not to 
  • Why different barcode types are required for point-of-sale scanning versus warehouse scanning
  • The best size for your barcode, where to place it on your package and how to get the best scans possible
  • Which barcodes just contain the product identifier and which barcodes contain additional information, such as batch/lot number and expiration date 

Who Would Benefit:

  • People who are new to barcoding 
  • People who are being asked to provide additional product information in their barcodes
  • People who have barcoding experience, but are unsure of all of the barcoding possibilities and want to learn more about what barcodes can do!
