Barcode Manager Upgrades Summer 2020


A quick note on some great features and updates we are making to Barcode Manager over the coming weeks. Our developers have been working hard to ensure the platform is easier for our members to use, and is focused on ensuring they can manage their product data to meet the increasing demands of partners and consumers.

In the last number of weeks, many members have been helping us to test these updates and find the improvements really speed up adding and editing product information.

As part of this activity, our first update will take place this Thursday evening and users should expect 4-6 hours of downtime.

Thanks to your feedback we can constantly innovate, and we’re really excited about the future of our digital services.

Join us for a live Barcode Manager walkthrough webinar, followed by a Q&A session at 11AM on Thursday, 7th July.
