Support migration of folk art/craft items from proprietary barcodes to GS1 system to support product traceability and inventory management GS1 Thailand app enables consumers to access product information. Both EAN-13 and GS1 DataMatrix implemented. Project included training courses

EAN-13 was initially used for POS checkout

Need to train the staff about the new procedure including to create up the master data to associate the item’s GTIN with Batch number and Serial Number.
GS1 Digital Link implementation may be a great solution instead of using SmartBar to scan and gather the item’s information via 2D barcode
