GS1 has a long history in retail and the ubiquitous beep of the GS1 barcode is heard at store checkouts 5 billion times a day. Today, there are many paths to purchase, but consumers are demanding one, seamless retail channel - the one that brings their product home. They are creating "personal supply chains" for food, clothing, electronics and more - and GS1 standards can help.
The retail industry is quickly responding to the changing habits of consumers, who switch seamlessly between in-store and e-commerce channels while expecting a consistent shopping experience. GS1 standards are helping the retail sector integrate store operations, delivery and inventory management to meet the challenges of the new omni-channel marketplace and satisfy the expectations of consumers before, during and after their purchase.
