This automatic assignment reduces the chance of error and provides confidence that your GTINs have been created correctly and will work with trading partners.
  • Generate Global Standard Barcodes Quickly and easily create high-resolution barcodes, saving time and costs by eliminating the need to go elsewhere for barcode images. Using the GS1 GTIN assigned to your product, you can quickly generate a barcode that is properly formatted and follows GS1 global standards, ready for you to print correctly on your items and share with trading partners.
  • Centralized GTIN Management Having a record of all your GTINs available in one central location enables you to easily and accurately track your company’s GTIN usage and capacity, avoiding potential duplication or unintentional reuse. It also eliminates the need for time-consuming and error-prone spreadsheets and other tools often used to manage and store GTINs and calculate a check digit.
  • Capacity Tracking Capacity tracking indicates exactly how many GTINs you have assigned to products and how many you still have left, reducing the risk of running out of GTINs without warning. With capacity tracking, you'll avoid unnecessary costs by only paying for the number of GTINS you need.
