Getting Started for Retailers
A global transition in retail
Next generation 2D barcodes are transforming the way the retail sector does business, supporting digital transformation and delivering new opportunities for all stakeholders in the retail supply chain.
By 2027, all retail point-of-sale systems will aim to scan 2D barcodes worldwide.
Let the journey begin
Retailers that are already implementing 2D barcodes report the upgrade period is between 12 and 18 months minimum.
Prepare your business for 2027. Retailers are beginning the transition to 2D barcodes now.
