GS1 Issues Industry Invitation To Join New Intelligent Barcode Working Group

Do you have a business challenge that could be helped through the use of an 'intelligent barcode'?

First, perhaps you are wondering what an intelligent barcode is! Very simply, it's one that contains more information about the item it is attached to. A standard retail barcode, such as an EAN 13, contains only an identification number.


However, intelligent barcodes can do so much more – for everyone. Brands, manufacturers, retailers, construction workers, healthcare staff, patients ... each and every one of us, could use intelligent barcodes to achieve more.

GS1 Ireland is committed to partnering with industry to help unlock the capabilities offered by 2D barcodes to deliver more powerful granular data. They provide guidance, training and support for on-pack solutions that allow businesses to adapt and scale to the future global adoption of 2D barcodes.


If you’d like to learn more about the many uses and benefits of intelligent barcodes, please register for the launch meeting on Friday, 25 June 11am - 12pm.

This session is open to organisations of all types and from all industry sectors. During the call, they’ll introduce the many applications possible and get feedback from participants on the priority areas.

Please feel free to join the mailing list or to contact Tim Daly on the GS1 Industry Engagement Team if you would like to discuss any aspect of implementing intelligent barcodes as part of your business processes.
