Understanding How GS1 Standards Allow Information to be Identified, Captured, and Shared

This webcast covers how the use of the GS1 Standards such as the Global Trade Item Number and case levels can be used to support the collection of data at critical tracking events.  You'll learn how this information can be shared with others in the supply chain. Results from recent research and pilot programs are presented to illustrate how businesses are using GS1 Standards today and how the standards can be used in the future to support enhanced supply chain information to support product tracing.
