Keith Gallagher of TrueCommerce completes his GS1 System CertificateFor many solution providers, being able to offer a GS1 standards based solution can be a real point of value to their customers, ensuring the interoperability, scalability and longevity of their solutions.

Having staff trained in the implementation of GS1 standards based solutions reduces cost, increases efficiency, and can be a great selling point for any solution provider. Having access to a proper training resource makes it easy for staff to upskill, ensuring that staff have the knowledge they need to do their jobs, and are utilising best practice.

GS1 Ireland has launched the new GS1 System Certificate, available now on our new Learning Zone e-learn platform. It provides a foundational knowledge of GS1 standards and solutions. The course is free to members of the GS1 Ireland Solution Provider Programme and is an ideal introduction to GS1 standards for your staff.

“I found the GS1 System Certification beneficial because as a solution provider it is important we convey the correct detail to customers and maximise the accuracy of the data that is captured and exchanged within EDI”
