Please keep in mind that these conferences are normally attended by larger companies who have dedicated individuals or teams managing GTIN data and barcodes. Most our clients are now subscribing to one of our support programs, which gives them access to a consultant who can assist with these needs, as they arise. Bar Code Graphic’s GS1 Barcode Support services are perfect for suppliers that need anything from technical guidance to comprehensive support with creating and maintaining item hierarchies and GTIN assignments. Whereas the GS1 Barcode Support is for companies who already have their brand assigned GS1 Company Prefix, UPC Barcode service is available for companies new to UPC barcoding.
