digad’s clients use SAP Business One ERP as a single platform to maintain multiple barcodes per item, while also tracking global distribution channels. digad implements SAP Business One using primary GS1 identifiers (GTIN, GLN, SSCC) in all aspects of the supply chain from manufacturer, logistics operational partners and meeting retail delivery standards.
Who needs GS1 standards? Retailers in the US are increasingly demanding product traceability and the extension of GS1 identification keys into their warehouses and stores, defined explicitly in published floor ready standards. Similar to the industry’s demands of EDI, and yet one of the same, GS1 standards are demanded by retailers while the transparency and data efficiency have delivered benefits to wholesalers as well.
Why now? Having recently eliminated patent trolls, increasing regulation amongst factories and proven benefits to retailers; implementing GS1 standards today is paramount for all trading partners throughout the supply chain. Front of store efficiencies and reduced shrinkage, to name a few of the obvious benefits, have driven the business case amongst leading retailers and early adopters of GS1’s EPC enabled RFID tags.
