Types of Consulting

There are three GS1 Consulting Services available:

System Deployment

This consulting service focuses on the implementation and utilisation of a specific GS1 standard. The standards supported are:

  1. GS1 Barcodes
  2. GS1 EPCglobal (RFID)
  3. GS1 ECom (Electronic Messaging)
  4. GS1 Traceability

Companies requiring subject matter expertise will find the GS1 System Deployment very useful. This service does not cover the formal definition of business process requirements and does not cover project management support for the implementation of the standards above. GS1 System Deployment will provide the required knowledge of a GS1 standard and ensure your company utilises it correctly to give you maximum benefit.

Rapid Assessment

GS1 Rapid assessment is a one day onsite assessment providing you with high level recommendations regarding the use of GS1 Standards. The focus is on automation of internal and intercompany transactions by applying automatic data capture and electronic messaging services.

Your company will receive a Rapid assessment report containing business process observations, automation recommendations and associated supporting requirements. The scope of the assessment can be on one or more of the following functional areas: Inward and Outward Goods, Production, Distribution, Master Data Management as well as Sell Side and Buy Side Business Transactions.
