GS1 standards are essential for a solution to support sharing digital product information with consumers:
■ The solution must be global to ensure that consumers are provided the same user experience without regard to location or circumstances.
■ The solution must be scalable so it can be expanded quickly to deal with the anticipated rapid increase in usage.
■ The solution must be real time, to be able to react quickly to requests for information in order to meet consumer expectations for response times.
■ The solution must be based on a multi-sourced approach, using the wide variety of data sources required to support consumer needs for digital product data.
GS1 standards support a proven framework to create, manage and share data about products efficiently and securely. Standards ensure effective exchanges between parties and provide interoperability to support global solutions.
