GS1 BELIEVES IN THE POWER OF STANDARDS TO TRANSFORM THE WAY WE WORK AND LIVE
GS1 has been bringing industries together to revolutionise the way they do business for more than forty years. However the pace of change, globalisation, and the need to organise data has altered the relationship between consumers and business. Consumers and users of services are now able to integrate data into their buying decisions anytime, anywhere. Consumers today expect companies and public service organisations alike to deliver relevant, accurate, and consistent information through any channel they desire.
The end of 2014 marked the completion of the second year of the current three year strategic plan for GS1 Ireland. We have continued to build on the strong platform developed in 2013 and have met or exceeded each of our priority area targets in this reporting year.
GS1 continues to be the global language of business and is constantly evolving and expanding as new standards and solutions are developed in line with industry and/or regulatory requirements. During the past year GS1 Ireland has achieved its key objectives and this review includes details of the beneﬁts provided to your business or organisation (our members) and we look forward to what can be further achieved in 2015 through the use of GS1 standards and solutions.
