Omni-channel retail

Inventory integrity is a retailer problem that until recently has remained in-house. Consumers now expect that inventory will be reliable and accurate online and in real time.

Open, global standards now support retailers and sellers both in the physical and online worlds. Global marketplaces use GS1 standards as the foundation of identifying goods online. Standards assist brands in being able to deliver a more seamless consumer experience.
