GS1 Standards

Make GS1 compliance and compatibility core components of your labeling process with BarTender

GS1’s global standards are the common language that enables businesses to identify and capture relevant information, and to share it with other trading partners.

By following GS1 protocols, businesses can encode vital information into their barcodes, labels, and EPC/RFID tags—ensuring effective and efficient supply chain management.

With GS1’s guidelines properly implemented, businesses can expect to:

  • Ensure that key processes run smoothly, reducing unnecessary back-and-forth communications

  • Save time and money by reducing administrative processes, and optimizing the use of materials and resources

  • Achieve increased visibility across your entire supply chain

BarTender seamlessly implements GS1 standards into your organization’s labeling processes

Built-in support for GS1 Digital Link

Harnessing GS1 Digital Link means that you can create web-enabled barcodes by encoding a dynamic URL that carries contextual information along with your GS1 identifiers. Not only can you consolidate your barcodes into one symbol but you can also provide specific data to the individual scanning the barcode based on location, time zone, and other factors.
