The only organisation in Singapore authorised to issue GS1 Bar Code Number

Customised Training Sessions by GS1 Singapore

Take a look at how one of our users has benefited from our customised GS1 Bar Code System Workshop.

Trainer, Joy Lee sharing with the participants from Sunrise & Co Pte Ltd on the various GS1 identification keys.

On 14 June 2013, GS1 Singapore conducted an off-site training workshop for Sunrise & Co Pte Ltd who has been a GS1 user since 2005. Sunrise & Co Pte Ltd is a local company specializing in regional distribution of sportswear and equipment. The corporate training was conducted at their office premises and was well attended by 13 of their staff members including the Operations Head and Business Development Manager.

Despite being a GS1 user for 8 years, Sunrise & Co Pte Ltd has taken the initiative to arrange for GS1 Singapore to conduct this training session for their new staff as the management believes that it is important for them to be equipped with the knowledge of implementing item numbering and bar codes onto their packaging and the essential steps in ensuring that only quality bar codes reach the market so as to enhance their supply chain management.

Participants were presented with details on the GS1 Global Standards, GS1 Identification Keys and Numbering System. The presentation also covered areas on allocation of the Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) and technical specifications for retail and non-retail packaging, such as colour, size and location. It was emphasized throughout the training session by Trainer, Joy Lee that both retailers and manufacturers reap the benefits of operational efficiency and faster turnaround of goods if all barcodes are printed with the correct specifications and can be scanned accurately at the first time.

“The trainer was able to address the key points to our level of understanding and showcase the importance of the numbering system identification. It was an eye-opener in learning the fundamentals and its relevance to our business” - Abhinav Sapru.
