“Verified by GS1 is very important to Google as it establishes the identify of a product and will allow companies all around the world to verify that the products they get from other parties are the products they are looking for. It will also give consumers confidence when buying online – more so than today.”
- Bhanu Narasimhan, Director, Product Management, Google Shopping
Until now, retailers have had to use complex algorithms and manual processes to cross-check GTINs from different data sources, leading to significant waste, confusion and costly errors. For retailers and marketplaces, this reinforced foundation of the product data ecosystem drives operational efficiencies and ultimately increases sales.
This new product data foundation offers brand owners greater control over their basic product data and global visibility for their products. They now have complete visibility into the quality of the core data for all their products around the globe, and access to analytics and insights they can use to improve the quality of the data in their systems.
